The Carnegie Arts Center is welcoming Central West Ballet Artistic Director René Daveluy and dancers from the upcoming production of “Coppelia” to discuss and showcase the integral relationship between storytelling and the art of dance.
The performance is set for 7:30 p.m. March 2 at the Carnegie Arts Center. Tickets are $5 for general admission and free to Carnegie members, students, and children.
“Dance is one of the most ancient art forms developed to convey stories in every culture,” said Carnegie Arts Center Director Lisa McDermott. “Highlighting the great work of our own Central West Ballet is part of how we define the Carnegie as a center for all the arts.”
The ballet classic tells the story of a village youth who falls in love with a life-size dancing doll. Both comedic and romantic, the story is fun for the whole family.
"It is a privilege for us to collaborate on lectures and presentations at the Carnegie Arts Center,” said Daveluy. “This gives Central West Ballet the opportunity to share the history of dance throughout the Central Valley. The Carnegie Arts Center is a perfect environment for bringing artists together.”
