Ballet Concert featuring selections from Sleeping Beauty
Friday, May 21 at 7:00 and Saturday, May 22 at 4:00 at Smithwick Theatre, Foothill College OR OUTDOORS at Cubberley
With the changing health climate, our performances may evolve and adapt.
Dance Connection continues a tradition of providing an optional ballet performance for all ballet students in the level primary through advanced with alternating costumed performance years. On even years (2022) we produce our low-key ballet concert. The odd numbered years (2021) include a full ballet production with costumes and scenery with Coppelia, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.
Although we cannot produce the full Sleeping Beauty Ballet this year with costumes and scenery, we will create a ballet concert without formal costuming and sets which features selections from Sleeping Beauty.
Spring Ballet Concert 2020
We contracted with HDZ Productions to produce our virtual SHOWTIME and Ballet Concerts this spring. Our competition dancers are familiar with HDZ Productions because they are the company that provides the tech and staging support for the dance competitions and conventions we have attended.
Unfortunately, after spending thousands of dollars on the video editing for our live stream production, the job is not complete. We received the final links of our performances at the end of October to preview before a live stream, and found several problems with each performance. Issues include missing several routines, missing dancers within a routine, routines showing one dancer and the rest hidden behind, music incorrect, and more.
We have not abandoned the process, and will continue to seek a resolution even if it involves hiring another company to fix and finish the job. We thank our families for their patience.
