Western Ballet presents an enchanting evening of classical ballet. The young dancers, ranging in age from 8 to 18, will present excerpts from "La Bayadere," choreographed in 1877 by Marius Petipa to music by Ludwig Minkus. This will be followed by Petipa and Minkus' "Don Quixote Variations," and then "Imagined Notions." The performance will close with "Holberg Suite," danced to Edward Grieg's music.
Alexi Zubiria is Artistic Director of Western Ballet, based in Mountain View. Zubiria, formerly a soloist dancer with San Francisco Ballet, has also danced with ballets in Caracas, Marseilles, and Berlin, and is proficient in classical, neo-classical and modern styles of dance.
