UC ingot   The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Preparatory and Community Engagement department presents the Spring Youth Ballet Concert at 7:30 p.m. on April 27 and 28, 2018 in Patricia Corbett Theater. CCM Prep’s young dancers will exhibit their skills by performing excerpts from the ballet repertoire and new works.

This year, five graduating high school seniors choreographed original pieces that will be presented at the concert. In addition to these student-created works, the program also features Wishes on the Wind, choreographed by Prep instructor Heather Johnson, as well as Flower Whispers, choreographed by CCM Prep ballet director Jonnie Lynn Jacobs-Percer.

The second half of the program consists of excerpts from Le Corsaire, a feature-length ballet based on Lord Byron’s poem of the same name. The excerpts to be presented include “Les Odalisques,” a pas de deux and a waltz. The choreography for these excerpts is based on that by Marius Petipa, with music by Adolphe Adam, Cesare Pugni and Leo Delibes.
