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.
