These photographs are by CJ Standish and are of Cities' Classical Dance Ensemble's rehearsals with their guest choreographer.
CJ is a photography student and has been following Cities' Classical Dance Ensemble as we prepare for our premier show as part of the 2011 Minnesota Fringe Festival, "Ballet Amore."
The pictured work is one of the pieces that will be performed in Ballet Amore along with other inventive contemporary ballet pieces set to live viola and piano music and a classical jazz piece choreographed by Colleen Tague. We will have five performances of Ballet Amore beginning Saturday, August 6th at The Lab Theater in Minneapolis.
Thank you to CJ for her beautiful photographs. And thank you to Continental Ballet and Riet Velthuisen for donating studio space and for allowing us to perform as part of Continental Ballet's Invitation to the Dance in addition to our performances in the Minnesota Fringe.
