Ballet Kelowna set to return

The White Swan and Black Swan will have a battle of ballerina egos in a show in Golden on Monday, Oct. 15, at the Golden Civic Centre.

Ballet Kelowna is preparing to return for a new show in Golden.

The White Swan and Black Swan will have a battle of ballerina egos in a show in Golden on Monday, Oct. 15, at the Golden Civic Centre.

Ballet Kelowna will be returning to Golden as part of the troupe’s 10th anniversary with a program of contrasts and collaborations.

It is a time for good versus evil in Swan Lake.

Ballet Kelowna was incorporated on November 7, 2002, as the Kelowna Ballet Society. Under the leadership of Founding Board President Myles Bruckal, Founding Artistic Director David LaHay, and Honorary Patrons Annette Paul, Brian Macdonald, C.C. and Arnold Spohr, Ballet Kelowna gave its first performances with six professional Canadian dancers in the fall of 2003.

Ballet Kelowna commissions new work from emerging and established Canadian choreographers and presents masterworks from the Canadian ballet legacy along with ballets and excerpts from the Classical and Romantic eras.

Ballet Kelowna will be taking their breathtakingly bold and beautiful performances to the stage at the Civic Centre and will attempt to captivate audiences with their mosaic of classical and contemporary dance. The group’s performances are well known for being intimate and carefully crafted.

The vision of the group as stated on their website, is as follows: “Capturing the entertainment interest of all members of the family, Canada’s Ballet Kelowna performs to sold out audiences.  Ballet Kelowna enhances the image of ballet, making the art form more inviting, fun, and personally meaningful.  Proudly ‘made in Kelowna’ this boutique ‘inno-classical’ ballet company is a dedicated community partner.”

To learn more about the group go to www.balletkelowna.ca. If you are interested in purchasing tickets for this or any of the Kicking Horse Culture shows drop by the Art Gallery of Golden at 516 9th Ave. N.
