Huntsville Ballet Company is pleased to open our 2021-2022 season with the Unplugged series featuring “Carnival of the Animals”! Children and adults alike will enjoy this whimsical ballet set to the music of Camille Saint-Saens. Local favorites, Ron Roberts and Wilson Luquire will narrate the humorous verses inspired by this popular piece. Choreographers, Phillip Otto, Rachel Butler, and Cathy Curry collaborated to create stylized choreography for the different animals showcased in the work.
A new work by Artistic Director, Phillip Otto, this piece is inspired by a classical dance form demanding grace and precision and employing formalized steps and gestures set in intricate, flowing patterns to create expression through movement.
This new work by Stephanie Braly-Beutjer set to music by Karl Jenkins was inspired by the many dancers she’s taught over the past 25 years in Images Dance Ensemble at Grissom High School. Lord Byron wrote, “On with the Dance, Let Joy be Unconfined!” This piece represents moving joyously and with abandon – unrestrained, uninhibited yet powerful movement through time and space.
