This weekend a classic ballet performance by a local dance company will grace the main stage at the Palm Springs Art Museum.

When was the last time you saw a live dance performance, let alone ballet, in the Coachella Valley?  My point exactly.  For a reasonable price, a a great art museum – if you’re not doing anything, why not?

Of all the great classics, “Swan Lake” remains the quintessential ballet, the one that defines the standards of the Company, tests its dancers and ennobles the spirit of the audience.  This romantic fable of ill-fated passion, dreamlike transformation and ultimate forgiveness is set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.

About:

CK Dance’s dynamic spring production opens with the long-awaited return of Marius Petipa’s Grand Pas from Paquita, an exciting work of classical variations set to the music of Ludwig Minkus. Today in the ballet world, Paquita is performed as a one-act ballet that corresponds to the general canon of choreographic structures of a classical performance: entree, adagio, variations, coda. The gala entries of the corps-de-ballet and the soloists are marked with bravura and synchronism. The female solo variations follow. Each of the variations is a small masterpiece with its own character and style. On top of all this splendor, the leading dance couple demonstrates the academism and the beauty of the classical dance. CK Dance Alumni, Megan Wolfson, Principal Ballerina with The Minnesota Ballet and Joshua King, Alvin Ailey Professional Division dancer, will perform as the leading dance couple.

The program continues with The Princess Collection, dances showcasing original choreography by CK Dance’s talented teachers with music from many famous ballets involving Princess Fairytales, including Cinderella and Swan Lake. Rounding out the program will be Jazz, Modern and Hip-Hop dances set to today’s contemporary music. This enchanting series of dance performances will delight audiences of all ages.
