RADIANCE

June 8 @ 8:00 pm

$25 – $65

 

Immerse yourself in the fiery passion of Boléro by founder Bruce Wood, the exhilaration of the world premiere, Smile, by artistic director/resident choreographer Joy Bollinger, and the world-renowned Nine Sinatra Songs by legendary choreographer Twyla Tharp.

Set to Ravel’s passionate score, Boléro ignites the stage with its smoldering and sophisticated allure. Praised as “outrageously haughty and downright sexy” by Victoria Looseleaf of the Los Angeles Times, this iconic dance has become a timeless classic.

Amplifying the excitement is Bollinger’s playful and sultry world premiere, Smile, set to the soulful tunes of Jon Batiste’s acclaimed album, Hollywood Africans. Bollinger weaves a radiant tribute to the vitality of life, drawing inspiration from ragtime, boogie-woogie, and classical music.

Twyla Tharp’s romantic, tender, playful, and exuberant Nine Sinatra Songs brings the season to a spectacular close. Decked out in costumes by Oscar de la Renta, dancers swing, swirl, tango, and cha-cha through a glittering ballroom while tracing an arc of romantic relationships. Elizabeth Kendall of The New York Times said, “Nine Sinatra Songs struck me as something rare: An American masterpiece.”
