Lawrence Ballet Theatre Performance at Brandon Woods

On Wednesday, October 26th, LBT members Emmy Easley, Samantha Dunham, Elizabeth Lollar, Annie Olson, and Maya Sabatini, joined Associate Director of Dance Ellie Goudie-Averill to present a Lecture/Demonstration to the Brandon Woods community.  Ellie spoke about the history and aesthetics of Ballet and Annie presented a solo variation from Giselle, of the Romantic Era, and then the dancers demonstrated their Pointe work, which originated during that time.  The dancers then presented two duets from our Nutcracker, Birds, a more Classical piece, and Snake, a more Contemporary dance.  Everyone was very excited for the premiere of The Nutcracker, a Kansas Ballet, with choreography by Hanan Misko and Cynthia Crews, and there was a great conversation during the final Q&A.
