Ballet — wordless and powerful. What has struck me is just that, the power of the dance, but even more the power of the performance. The performers use their bodies, rhythm, emotions, and expression to convey the story in a way that may not be possible with dialog.
While attending rehearsals for the Sierra Nevada Ballet; I had the pleasure of a a sneak peek of their performance of DANCING BY THE RIVER Tuesday night, July 14th at 8pm at Wingfield Park. Sierra Nevada Ballet director Rosine Bena and her dancers, choreographers and technical crew have been busy rehearsing and getting ready for this Artown Event.
