This month our dancers left behind the warm South Florida weather and headed to Vancouver, British Columbia for a weekend of special performances. Hosted by Ballet BC, the Company presented a full program of masterworks by George Balanchine with performances of Serenade, Symphony in Three Movements and Ballo della Regina. The performances, which received rave reviews, marked the company’s debut in Vancouver.
“We will show that in times of massive upheaval, of insecurity, of darkness, of the unknown, artists and art will rise up to show what courage looks like and what resilience can do.”
