The program will include:  Alexander Borodin’s "Polovtsian Dances” from Prince Igor, Carl Maria Von Weber’s Le Spectre de la Rose, “Variations” from Alexander Glazunov’s Raymonda,  “Pas de Deux” from Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Shehérézade, and Jacques Offenbach’s “Can-Can” from Gaîté Parisienne, all staged by Natasha Middleton.  The Maple Youth Ballet,Charles Maple, Director, will appear as a Guest Ballet Company performing George Balanchine’s Valse-Fantaisie, which features a windswept pattern of dancing in leaps and leg beats to waltz rhythms, with music by Mikhail Glinka and costumes by Karinska.  Shawn Stevens will stage this performance of Valse–Fantaisie.
