Boulder Ballet is pleased to announce our 2021/22 return to the stage and the inaugural year of season subscriptions. This season we are delighted to bring the highest quality dance back to Boulder stages. The lineup includes a season opener at Chautauqua auditorium with a company premiere by Amy Seiwert, the traditional Nutcracker holiday show at Macky, Black Voices of Dance at The Dairy Arts Center and more! If this year has taught us anything, it is that performing for a live audience is a privilege for which we are grateful. Today we step out of the challenges of the past year and towards a season filled with beauty and wellness. We do hope you will join us in the theater by subscribing today.
Vail Dance Festival
Boulder Ballet has been invited to perform at Vail Dance Festival. The company will join BalletX for Dancing in the Park and perform Exploring the Roots, by Ka’frican technique founder Angel Kaba. This Afro’Dance piece features grounded, rhythmic movements influenced by the urban street dances of the Congo, Ivory Coast, and Angola in an inspirational blend of cultures. In three sections, Boulder Ballet dancers explore explosive movement in Afro house, stylized improvisation, and African street dance. Exploring the Roots demonstrates the social power of dance, the fun of movement, and captivates the audience with a new way of dancing. Dancing in the Park is August 5, 2021 at the Avon Performance Pavilion. The performance will begin at 5:30pm. For more information, see the VDF website here.
