Northwest Florida Ballet: Ballet Under the Stars
The Northwest Florida Ballet (NFB) 2021 - 2022 season concludes at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village in Destin, Florida with Ballet Under the Stars on Saturday, June 25 at 7:30PM. This free outdoor production features the NFB company and international guest artists in a unique mixed repertoire program.
The performance will feature excerpts from Katia Garza’s Beauty and the Beast and classical works such as the Grand Pas de Deux from Don Quixote performed by American Repertory Ballet’s Samantha Huebner and Jonathan Carter. Spring Waters, danced by Iori Araya from Ballet Memphis and Rafael Ferreras from San Antonio Ballet, and NFB soloist Wyatt Mier’s performance of a male variation from Diana and Acteon will also be featured.
Ballet Under the Stars will also include contemporary works choreographed by NFB Artistic Director Todd Eric Allen and Lindsey Brewer and Butler University’s Camille Loftis. The programs conclude with the audience-favorite Jazz Swing, which expresses the joy of classical dancing to the rhythm of Jazz, choreographed by Fernando Bujones with music by Louis Prima and Eddy Higgins.
