|Recurring Event (See all)

American Contemporary Ballet presents George Balanchine’s Valse-Fantaisie
and the premiere of Astaire Dances II—Fred and Ginger. The classical Balanchine work features nonstop jumping and waltzing; the Astaire program re-creates five of Astaire’s dances with Ginger Rogers. Artistic director Lincoln Jones considers Balanchine and Astaire “the two greatest choreographers of the 20th century.” He’s tapped Zsolt Banki to return to take on the role of the famous Hollywood star, while different members of the company perform as Rogers. Live music accompanies the performances, and a reception afterward encourages the audience to meet the artists. Check the Web site for times.
