About This Show

A mixed repertory sure to delight audiences of all ages, Raising the Barre features two full-length ballets and selected pieces of new and traditional choreography. Assistant Director Margaret Kenrick presents her new choreography of Stravinsky’s masterwork The Firebird accompanied by the Livermore-Amador Symphony and featuring fabulous new costumes by award-winning textile and costume designer Caryne Mount. Rossini’s La Boutique Fantasque enchants children of all ages when a toy shop comes to life! This classic children’s ballet is filled with wonderfully costumed dolls and dancing toys with choreography by Director Betsy Hausburg to live music from the Livermore-Amador Symphony. For those who love romance (with a little swashbuckling thrown in!) Valley Dance presents Act I of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet from fencing to the balcony scene! rounding out the program is a new premiere of Chaconne with music by Vitali showcasing the exceptional partnering skills of five couples choreographed by VDT’s Partnering Instructor Doug Johnson.
