We just started our 18-19 season and we have many very exciting ballets coming up this year. We open with a MOZART IN MOTION – Divertimento No. 15 (Balanchine), Six German Dances (Kylian) and Petite Mort (Kylian) All to Mozart music, of course. The Kylian pieces we are renting and we have Divertimento No. 15. We will be freshening it up a bit.
NUTCRACKER – We have been working on that for awhile, new Pirate pants, new Mice padding biketards, new Solder belts and two new Party girl dresses. Just bought the fabric for one today at The Fabric Place ( beautiful silk taffeta and Liberty of London small print). I am sure lots of other additions will come up before we open.
THE GREAT GATSBY – A brand new production choregraphed by Jorden Morris, music by Carl Davis. Sets and costumes by Peter Farmer. We are making a few changes to some of the costumes but for the most part they will be like the originals. We have started a few new Daisy frocks and Jordan will get a new outfit or two, Myrtle also.
Jorden arrives on Monday so we will be working full speed ahead on THE GREAT GATSBY!
PITTSBURGH BALLET THEATRE and DANCE THEATRE OF HARLEM – New Rubies costumes ( so very exciting!!!!) We also have to build Orange ( Welch)
SLEEPING BEAUTY – Choreography after Petipas. We are renting Boston Ballet’s beautiful production designed by David Walker.
A busy season to say the least.

I am building the two flower girls (Grandaughters Kalli and Kenzi), Matron of Honor (Daughter Kerri) and of course the Bride!!! Also 22 table runners, 22 pew bows, two ring-bearers pillows, two flower girl baskets etc. Right up my alley!!! Love it, Love it!
