Spring Concert

Sawnee Ballet Theatre is presenting a full performance line up this season with excerpts from Swan Lake, repertory works, and The Tales of Beatrix Potter.

Swan Lake, which was first premiered by the Bolshoi Ballet in 1877, tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky composed this ballet along with The Nutcracker in 1892.  Initially, both ballets were considered failures, but have since become the most popular and widely performed classical ballets through out the world.  SBT will perform excerpts from the ballet’s Act II, restaged by Shara Martin Keith.

Tales of Beatrix Potter is 45 minute children’s ballet choreographed by SBT’s Artistic Director Courtney Bromwich featuring a cast of 70+ performers, colorful costumes, and fun for the whole family.

Live, socially distanced performances!

I.C.E.

Inspire – Create – Elevate

I.C.E. is a student choreographed showcase designed to encourage dancers to explore their creative side and learn about the various aspects of choreographing a dance.  Dancers will pick a song that inspires them, choreograph a dance, choose costumes, and edit their own music. 100% of the proceeds from I.C.E. will be donated to a non-profit organization. This year’s showcase will raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance in honor of Miss Courtney’s late mother-in-law that passed away 5 years ago this February.
