Victoria Ballet Theatre is excited to continue a new tradition in “Fall for Dance” which will feature a mixed repertory of classical and contemporary pieces highlighting the talent of their company. Victoria Ballet Theatre dancers will perform repertoire by renown choreographers such as LeeWei Chao of Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet, Darrell Cleveland formerly of Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Gerald Arpino, co-founder of the Joffrey Ballet.
This year’s “Fall for Dance” will also feature the addition of a guest contemporary company from New York City, Elisa Monte Dance Company. Hailed by critics, the company also features Victoria Ballet Theatre alumni, Mindy Lai.
In pursuance of their mission to involve and enrich Victoria and surrounding communities through outstanding performances of dance and innovative educational opportunities, VBT is proud to present Elisa Monte Dance Company on the stage as well as a lecture demonstration for area fine arts students.
