The Young Dancers of Bellas Artes will be performing at Ángela Peralta Theater with their choreography “Spanish Dances,” created in 2014 by their instructor Fridha Chacón. This company was started in 2013 with the approval and support of the current director of Centro Cultural Ignacio Ramirez “El Nigromante,” Alberto Lenz. This was the initiative of the instructor, Fridha Chacón, who has been working on the consolidation of this company from San Miguel Allende. With her enthusiasm and knowledge, she has been training this group of 29 dancers of different ages.
Ballet “Spanish Dances”
Thu, Jun 4, 8 pm
Teatro Ángela Peralta
60 and 80 pesos
The dancers have classes 12 hours a week, based on the Cuban and English technique, in which they practice and learn the ballet basics, including bar, floor bar, center, allegro, and grand allegro. In this performance of “Spanish Dances,” they will show the basics of the ballet, but the main inspiration of the choreographer is to show the influences of the neoclassical style that honors Diaghilev and the Russian Ballet movement that started in 1909. It was presented with European scenery in the middle of the 20th century with Lifar and Balanchine.
The performance we will see is influenced and inspired by the musical repertoire of Enrique Granados. “Spanish Dances” was composed between 1892 and 1900. The performance will be on Thursday, June 4, at 8 pm, at Teatro Ángela Peralta, Hernández Macías and Mesones. Tickets are only 60 and 80 pesos, available at La Biblioteca, so round up your dance enthusiast friends and enjoy! For more information and reservations call 415 111-1340.
