Russian Ballet Theatre presents “Swan Lake”


Swan
Lake
, which has
mesmerized audiences for over a century, is based on a German fairy tale. Tchaikovsky’s
score tells the tragic love story of Prince Siegfried and Swan Princess, Odette,
who is cursed to be a swan by day but a young woman at night. The Russian
Ballet Theatre’s new production will captivate audiences with time-honored
Russian traditions while adding new choreography, hand painted sets, radiant
hand sewn costumes, artistic hair designs and special effects makeup.

 

The
production’s hand-painted sets and more than 150 hand-sewn costumes were
created in the tradition of the great masters by young, accomplished designer
Sergei Novikov (Mariinksy Theatre, Omsk State Music Theatre, St. Petersburg
State Music Hall). The SFX makeup is done by Award-winning Irina Strukova (Crazy
Rich Asians,
Netflix, HBO) and will make ballet devotees feel as though
they are seeing the beautiful Swan Lake for the first time!

Cuban Salsa Workshop with Reinaldo Costa


Have you ever tried Salsa? How about CUBAN salsa? Now is your chance to learn this exciting and fun dance! Cuban salsa or casino is a type of salsa that was developed in recreation center of Havana in the 1950s. A group of young people decided to create their own type of salsa, with specific moves danced in partners in a large circle, or a rueda.

About the Instructor
Dancer, teacher and choreographer Reinaldo Costa is a graduate of the Alejo Carpentier Elementary School of Ballet. He continued studies at Escuela de Espectáculos Musicales for three years focusing on dance technique and performing. That period prepared him for Cuba's Tropicana 'little school', an intensive immersion to the company's style and performing vocabulary.

Upon completion of this program in 2011, he was admitted to Tropicana's professional company, fulfilling his life-long dream of performing on one of the world's most popular stages and with some of Cuba's most prominent artists. His high level of artistry and talent helped him obtain the position of soloist with the 'Cubáname Company' which relocated him to Mexico, and while there, toured around the country.

Today, he resides in Houston and has quickly become a sought-after dancer, choreographer and teacher with performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre, the San Francisco Rueda Festival, the Afro-Latin Festival and other events.
