Chairman Of Alamo Arts Ballet Interviews With The San Antonio Living Show

For San Antonio residents who want to take a break from the usual, The Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre will be performing “Ballet Cabaret,” November 6th – 7th at the Shrine Auditorium.

The Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre’s work to expose San Antonio to fresh, new ballet experiences continues with the company’s Fall 2010 production, “Ballet Cabaret.” Founder Judith Gani said that the Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre came up with the title for the weekend due to the cabaret-like elements of the venue. Also, many of the performance pieces are from the cabaret era.

“Ballet Cabaret” will feature Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre’s top dancers performing to a broad range of pieces. One classical piece will be the legendary Pas de Quatre from the mid 1800’s. Another piece will be Shostakovich’s rarely heard Jazz Suite, from 1938. There will also be choreography to music from the World War II era, as well as from composer Leroy Anderson.

The program will also include movie music ranging from Charlie Chaplain films, to Avatar. In addition, there will be guest artists from Angel Santiago’s ballroom company performing cutting edge tango pieces. Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre wants to engage a broader portion of the community through “Ballet Cabaret” by going beyond mundane ballet entertainment.

Chairman Christopher Herring says, “Ballet can be fun, entertaining, new, and interesting. It doesn’t have to be Swan Lake or the Nutcracker every time. That’s why we strive to do new choreography to music that you wouldn’t expect to see in ballet.”

The Shrine Auditorium is located at 901 North Loop 1604 West. Performances are on November 6th at 7:30PM and 7th at 3:00PM.
