Ballet Pensacola Performance at Seaside
On May 14 at 6 p.m., Ballet Pensacola returns also for its second performance in Seaside. Featuring both classical and contemporary dance, Ballet Pensacola promises a repertory evening. Bring your chair and blankets and enjoy the show. Free and open to the public.
“We like to mix it up,” says Richard Steinert, artistic director for Ballet Pensacola. “We’ll have some ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ moments, and choreography from our ‘Divas’ tour, which includes music by Billy Holliday and Beyonce.”
Steinert has worked in repertory companies throughout the United States and since his inaugural season as artistic director in 2007, he has held the attention of the ballet and arts community through a series of critically acclaimed performances and projects directed at broadening the experience of the dance enthusiast. The company will perform “Swan Lake’s” Pas de Trois also. And fresh off the company’s recent performance of “Swing, Swang, Swung,” Ballet Pensacola dancers will perform a lighthearted dance with original choreography by Steinert and Christine Duhon and music by the “King of Swing” Benny Goodman.
Drawing professional dancers from around the globe, Ballet Pensacola is known for its innovative, diverse and collaborative style of theatre and dance. Ballet Pensacola not only finds audiences in Northwest Florida, but also throughout the United States through its successful touring program.
“What’s really cool about dance,” explains Steinert, “is that it really inspires the audience to get emotionally involved because there are no words. We cannot and do not prescribe anything about what they should be feeling. Unlike actors, we are interpreting with our bodies. With dance having such a resurgence now, performing in Seaside is a great banner of what this part of the artistic world means and how it is changing in society.”
