Another chance to dance: Stars of Amer­i­can Bal­let

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — Michael Wade Simp­son

How does a bal­let dancer spend his time off? Per­form­ing. Stars of Amer­i­can Bal­let is a small tour­ing group of dancers from New York City Bal­let and other com­pa­nies helmed by Daniel Ul­bricht, a City Bal­let prin­ci­pal. What it doesn’t of­fer are elab­o­rate sets and a huge or­ches­tra. What it does of­fer is a chance to see some of the lead­ing dancers in the coun­try up close. Two dif­fer­ent pro­grams fea­ture clas­sic works by Balan­chine, as well as chore­og­ra­phy by Ulysses Dove, Peter Martins, and Lynne Tay­lor-Cor­bett, among oth­ers. The com­pany, pre­sented by Per­for­mance Santa Fe, takes the stage at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) at 7:30 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, Aug. 12, and Thurs­day, Aug. 13. Tick­ets, $27 to $100, are avail­able by call­ing 505-988-1234 and from www.tick­etssantafe.org and www.per­for­mance­santafe.org.
