“Mostly Bournonville and Petipa,” a program of excerpts from ballets such as Swan Lake, La Bayadère, and Napoli, will be performed by students from the Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet on December 16 at 7:30pm at New York’s Symphony Space.

Dancers under the artistic direction of Gelsey Kirkland and Michael Chernov will showcase the various styles taught at the school, from Petipa to Bournonville (taught by Karina Elver, formerly of the Royal Danish Ballet), and from ballet mime scenes to character dances.
