Witness style and technique, mixed with beauty and creativity at the Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre’s upcoming “Spring Mix,” March 26th & 27th at University of Texas San Antonio’s Downtown Campus. A good spring mix of any sort should be fresh, include diversity, and be flavored with a plethora of bold colors. The Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre (AABT) will be sure to please with its presentation of “Spring Mix,” a mix of “Perennial Ballet Favorites and Freshly Choreographed Varieties!

“Spring Mix” will incorporate traditional ballet technique, with contemporary elements that will engage and entertain.

The program includes favorites from past AABT shows such as vignettes from the 20 and 30’s to music by Leroy Anderson, and contemporary ballet to music from the movie Avatar. The program will include the restaging of the pas de deux and variations from the 1856 production Le Corsaire, with music by Adolphe Adam. New choreography will include a pas de deux to Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini.

Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre will perform the “Spring Mix” free of charge for schools who have been invited to attend a special performance on Friday March 25th. Chairman, Christopher C. Herring says, “Part of the Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre’s mission is to bring ballet to under-served youth in San Antonio who might otherwise never get to appreciate a ballet performance.” Come cultivate your love of dance, March 26th at 7:30 pm and March 27th at 3:00 pm at the Buena Vista Theater at the UTSA’s Downtown Campus, 501 W. Durango. For more information see Alamo Arts Ballet website.
