A keen aspect of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet is its habit of commissioning new work from top international choreographers. Their dedication to performing new styles and creativity are what have given them the role of representing American dance for over 17 years.
The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, presented by the New Orleans Ballet Association, is led by artistic directors Tom Mossbrucker and Jean-Phillipe Malaty. Together with the works of Jirí Kylián, Jorma Elo, and the emerging talent of Norbert De La Cruz III, the evening's program is set to inspire audiences through poetic grace, hopeful atmospheres, and a finale that reflects the brilliance of the dancers.
NOBA has been around since 1969. Their mission is to promote appreciation and understanding of dance through education and community service. It has been recognised nationally as an ideal model for “Best Practices” in programming, curriculum, and innovative partnerships.
The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet will be performed at Mahalia Jackson Theatre on Saturday, 23 February. Doors will open at 7:30p.m. with the show starting at 8p.m.
