The talented young dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

Oakland-based Ross Dance Company, the dynamic modern/jazz ensemble, returns to Los Angeles with Speak. This is an intellectual and riveting evening program that uses modern jazz, spoken word, video documentary and rhythm and blues to share the intimate and real life stories of inspiring survivors of domestic abuse. Artistic Director Tecsia Ross provocatively blends athleticism and lyricism to create an unforgettable experience that is tremendously inspiring.
