April 22-26, 2019

 

Our Spring Dance concert brings you two short ballets: Paquitais a half-hour Spanish ballet that features solo dancers as well as corps de ballet, or, performance by a group. The ballet takes place in Spain during the presence of Napoleon’s army. Paquita, a young gyspy girl, has no idea that she was abducted by gypsies when she was an infant and is actually noble by birth. She wins the love of a French officer, Lucien d’Hervilly, when she saves his life. Lucien longs to marry the gypsy girl but cannot due to her status. Through a medallion that she has had all her life, Paquita finally discovers her true identity and is able to marry her true love. After Paquita, we will present Pas de Quatre,a historical dance piece that captures the essence of the romantic period ballet style. Don’t miss this beautiful showcase of talent in a very technical dance form.
