The Ballet Conservatory of South TexasPresents Synergy 2012, a Tribute to Classical and Contemporary Ballet
The Ballet Conservatory of South Texas (BCSTX) will present its annual spring performance, this year entitled, Synergy 2012, to the Carver Community Cultural Center for two performances on March 3 & 4.
Under the professional leadership of BCSTX Director, Kym Lanier, and Associate Director, Marieli Guardiola, the Conservatory Company will perform original contemporary works along with an excerpt from the classic ballet, Swan Lake. Choreography in several pieces throughout the performance is accredited to Tim Fox, a nationally renowned choreographer and Gabriel Zertuche, Ballet San Antonio's new Artistic Director. The performance also boasts a special appearance by Ballet San Antonio.
"We are excited to have Tim, Gabe and the Ballet San Antonio dancers be part of our performance this year," says Ms. Lanier. "Internally, it's a great learning experience for our own dancers to work with accomplished professionals – and it further enhances the performance. Viewing audiences are able to see different styles of choreography."
In addition to the two public performances that will be presented in March, BCSTX will also present a complimentary performance to six hundred and fifty school children from the San Antonio Independent School District and the East Central Independent School District. To further complement and deepen this experience for the students, BCSTX docents and dancers in costume will travel to each of the schools prior to the performance to discuss ballet training, music and the story of Swan Lake with the children.
Tickets may be purchased through ticketmaster.com or the Carver Community Cultural Center Box Office. Public performances will take place Saturday, March 3 at 7:30 pm and March 4 at 2:00 pm. Adults are $26 and $36; students, seniors and military are $16 and $26.
