Ballet Theatre Company’s intimate, mixed-repertoire performances, Up Close: Spring will be presented in the state-of-the-art Ron and Nancy Compton Studio at its 20 Jefferson Avenue home on March 4, 2023 at 7:00pm and March 5, 2023 at 2:00pm. In-person and virtual tickets available. The program includes a new work by guest choreographer Melanie Ramos titled Odyssey, the Pas de Trois from Swan Lake. Artistic Director Stephanie Dattellas will premiere a new work Por un Cabeza, commissioned by Sun West Mortgage to help market their new product Morgan, and company member James Felton II will present a work featuring BTC’s Junior Corps de Ballet. This performance offers the unique chance to view Ballet Theatre Company’s dancers at close range, giving a completely new perspective on ballet appealing to new and returning audience members alike. While dance in a traditional theater setting is thrilling, hearing the dancers’ breath and shoes on the floor, and watching them prepare in the “wings” between each entrance brings audience members enchanting insight into the physicality behind this powerful art form.
