Spokane Youth Ballet

Website Event Info for Spokane Youth Ballet June 18, 2016 performance

Please join the talented dancers of Spokane Youth Ballet for a varied and entertaining evening of dance.  First on the program will be “La Boutique Fantasque”.  This famous ballet takes place in a toyshop where an eccentric doll maker displays and sells his fantastic mechanical dolls.  When a pair of Can Can dolls is sold to two separate families, a great deal of drama and comedy takes place!  In the end, the avaricious doll make learns a very valuable lesson about what is truly important in life!  This ballet features the dancers of Spokane Youth Ballet and the Academy of Dance.  They are joined by local adult dancers and special guest artist, Benjamin Tucker.  Mr. Tucker will dance the role of the male Can Can dancer.  His partner will be Spokane’s own Delaney O’Connor.

 The second half of the program will launch us forward about a century!  Spokane Youth Ballet will premier a new contemporary ballet, “Alice in Wondrousland”.  This ballet, based on the Lewis Carroll classic, will be set during the 60’s and 70’s.  With a score created from the classic hits of this era, choreographer Phaedra Jarrett takes us on the journey of a teenage girl.  Alice, in conflict with her controlling mother, meets many strange and wondrous beings as she learns that really…”all you need is love”!  This entertaining piece is sure to have the audience dancing on their way home from this magical dance experience.

 This performance is appropriate for the entire family!
