School of Classical Ballet presents “Steps On Stage” on Saturday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m. at the Alberta Bair Theater.
Tickets may be purchased at the ABT.
Guest performers from the Terpsichore Dance Co., and former School of Classical Ballet students will perform a modern piece choreographed by Teal Darkenwald, a professor of dance at East Carolina University in North Carolina. Darkenwald is also a former SCB student.
Other guest choreographers who have been brought in to choreograph different styles of dance for the students include: Leigh Schanfein, New York City, contemporary ballet; Kirsten Cooper, Seattle, contemporary; and Leah Dugas, former student from SCB and Diversity Dance, lyrical jazz.
“It is so rewarding to be able to bring former students back to choreograph, perform and mentor the current students,” co-director Betty Loos said.
Loos is assisted by Julia Marble.
