Scarsdale Ballet Studio will offer an ambitious program March 20 and 21 at its seventh annual workshop performance, to be held at the Dance Theatre Lab at Purchase College, SUNY, in Purchase, New York.
In addition to Fokine’s Les Sylphides and a new work by Pedro Ruiz, a former principal dancer with Ballet Hispanico, the program will include George Balanchine’s Valse-Fantaisie (1967). The company’s artistic director, Diana White, worked with Balanchine as a former New York City Ballet soloist and has the permission of the George Balanchine Trust to stage his works on her students.
The performance will conclude with The Firebird, choreographed by White in collaboration with faculty members David Fernandez and Simon Kazantsev. White danced the role of the Princess in Balanchine’s Firebird at NYCB.
