Ballet Creole celebrates spring with artistic director Patrick Parson’s resurrection of his classical piece, Spring Rites. Mozart, Haydn and Schubert provide the musical score as dancers explore the relationship and interactions with the elements of nature in spring and the freedom and joy this season represents in Canada. Combining jazz, contemporary and Afro-Caribbean dance, Spring Rites is truly a multi-cultural Canadian celebration of our unique climate.
Associate choreographer Gabby Kamino will also provide a bold new choreography pushing the boundaries of movement and evoking the emotions of the dancers and the audience.
In anticipation of Ballet Creole’s 25th anniversary, Spring Rites will demonstrate the longevity and quality of this contemporary Afro-Caribbean dance company and provide an exciting evening of dance which seeks to build upon Ballet Creole’s ground-breaking legacy of providing a unique Canadian/Afro-Centric style that is accessible, entertaining, and thought provoking dance for all to enjoy.
