Hop aboard the Summer Dance Carousel and take your family on a ride to the enchanted world of fairy tales and magical folklore in the glorious Russian ballet tradition. This bright and colorful ballet showcase features professional dancers—principal dancers of the San Jose Ballet, as well as performances by students from the Bayer Ballet Academy.
The dances in Part 1 range from classical, character and folk through contemporary pieces—all subtly contained in a lovely woodland theme. Enjoy the flowers and mushrooms of the forest, colorful polka and tarantella pieces, Russian folk dances as well as guest appearances from Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, the The Nutcracker and Coppélia.
In Part 2, the stage is transformed into a brilliantly beautiful Russian market. The remarkable dancers will steal your hearts as they spin their tale with the expressive and precise movement that characterizes the Russian ballet style. Original choreography to beloved music includes selections from Igor Stravinsky’s Petrouchka and Firebird. Vivid characters, colorful costumes, and technical precision of movements set to a brilliant music of Stravinsky will bring to life magical folklore, including Baba Yaga the witch and other unforgettable characters from the Russian tradition.
The music, costumes and stunning dancing make The Summer Dance Carousel a “don’t miss” event for the whole family.
