CCM Dance Works presents classical ballet and modern dance Dec. 1-4

Tickets to the mixed rep performance are on sale now

Story by CCM Graduate Student Lucy Evans

UC College-Conservatory of Music presents Dance Works, featuring a variety of styles to showcase the school’s many talented ballet majors, on Dec. 1-4 in Patricia Corbett Theater. The performance features four selections: excerpts from Glazunov’s Raymonda, Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers” from The Nutcracker, and two premieres choreographed by CCM faculty artists — Who We Are and Mozart Mix.

Directed by CCM Dance Chair Shauna Steele, the inspiration behind the program is "to create a wide range of dynamic, challenging and engaging works that provide opportunities for the students to engage with each other and the audience," she says. Though the four dance works represent a wide variety and periods and styles, “each piece highlights the engagement of space and bodies, weaving together to create something new,” Steele adds.

Composed in the late 19th-century, Alexander Glazunov’s Raymonda follows the medieval princess Raymonda as she is torn between love for her fiancé and an intriguing, though possibly dangerous visitor. The piece features Marius Petipa’s iconic choreography, and has been restaged by CCM professors Tricia Sundbeck and Isabele Elefson.

Audiences looking to get into the holiday spirit will find it in the familiar music of Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers,” featuring new choreography by faculty choreographer Rae Vrbancic. A collaboration between the Dance Department and the Costume Design and Technology Department, “Waltz of the Flowers” features costumes designed by Assistant Professor of Costume Design Elizabeth Payne and built by CCM Costume Design majors.

The program ventures from the classical repertoire with the world premieres of Mozart Mix, choreographed by CCM professor Thomas Bell, and Who We Are, choreographed by Shauna Steele.
