Ballet des Amériques at the Tarrytown Music Hall
February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20 - $35
French-American choreographer Carole Alexis and her Ballet des Amériques dance company bring a rich and sprawling repertoire to the Tarrytown Music Hall in a new series called Westchester Wednesday Dance. These weekday evenings of dance offer audiences a break in the workday routine and a chance to witness the original work of the Music Hall’s company in residence.
As a student of Maurice Béjart, Alexis’ choreography is rooted in classical ballet training and tradition while drawing on influences as disparate as children’s games, island rituals, natural phenomena, and modern urban life. Her dances entice and charm the viewer with elements of humor, psychological insight and surprise. Her company’s extensive and eclectic repertoire bears her distinctive signature and vision, reinvigorating “ballet” for new audiences and dance connoisseurs alike.
For the first performance of the series, Ballet des Amériques will present evolved versions of Flowers and Tears, Bolero, Lentil Soup, Macouba and Nos ici et d’ailleurs.
Performances are scheduled for February 20, 2019, 7PM; April 24, 2019, 7PM; June 26, 2019, 7PM.
