The Richmond Ballet is heading to NYC, but you still have a chance to see them before they go.
Two more performances remain in the Richmond Ballet’s “Encore New York: Joyce Theater Preview” before their engagement at the famous dance theater, which will showcase the Ballet’s most popular commissioned works.
The two mixed programs will feature three ballets so you can go multiple times to experience different shows.
We had a chance to see one of the two programs.
The first performance, “Violin,” opened with a male ensemble in simple green leotards dancing to colorful choreography by Val Caniparoli. It featured complex, yet fluid body movements as dancers graced the stage with ease.
The dancing took a spicier turn with Ariel Ramirez’s “Misa Criolla” moody, Latin-flavored piece. The ballet featured elaborate garb and an intricate footwork. ”Vestiges,” the most dramatic piece, heightened the senses with a series of bold movements which held over the crowd.
The last performances of the Joyce Theater Preview are March 30 and April 1 at 7:30 p.m. After that, the Ballet will starts its new run in New York April 5 – 11.
