Austin’s newest professional ballet company springs a mid-season show, debuting several new works of live music and dance in an homage to Leap Year. Ventana Ballet invites its audiences to jump in, as the artists present LEAP! on February 28 & 29 at 8pm at their East Austin home, First Street Studio Theater.
Guests are offered light refreshments and then invited to hop over to their seats, where they will be surrounded by a lively and energetic string of dances. This stripped-down show is up-close-and-personal, with audience seating surrounding the performance floor.
The intimate, black-box style experience will premiere brand new dance choreography by Director AJ Garcia-Rameau and Artistic Advisor Dorothy O’Shea Overbey, set to live musical performances for unaccompanied cello and piano.
As sprightly as they are springy, the artists on this show’s roster are: Rachel Culver (Dancer), Nicole Del Bene (Dancer), Megan Dollar (Dancer), AJ Garcia-Rameau (Dancer), Atticus Griffin (Dancer), Rylie Harrod-Corral (Cello), Rachel Meador (Dancer), Navaji David Nava (Dancer), Kelsey Oliver (Dancer), Joshua Piper (Piano) and Tikiri Shapiro (Dancer).View Map
