A mix of classical and contemporary ballet choreography and music will showcase the skill and artistry of new and returning student performers at the Utah Valley University Repertory Ballet Ensemble in concert Nov. 8-10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ragan Theater located in the Sorensen Student Center.
This concert is a biannual event produced in association with UVU’s School of the Arts and showcases the varied, stylistic range and talents of the students. The ensemble has an exciting group of new students joining the talented artists who return with the company.
The students will perform a modern ballet piece by UVU Dance associate professor Amy Markgraf-Jacobson in addition to contemporary ballet pieces by UVU graduate and professional dancer Joni Tuttle and nationally known choreographer John Corsa.
Mark Borchelt, UVU Repertory Ballet Ensemble co-director, created a neo-classical work to the music of Franz Josef Hayden, and former Ballet West dancer, Annie Breneman, has re-staged excerpts from the Marius Petipa classic ballet “Raymonda.”
