SUMMER DANCE RETURNS TO ASPEN.
"It was an honor to be asked to create this festival," says Malaty. "It also confirmed the good job we were doing year-round with our company and school. And it's a privilege to be able to save twenty-nine years of dance festival history in Aspen."
For three weeks in July and August, Aspen Ballet Company and dance artists from across the United States will perform. The season kicks off on Tuesday, July 20, with special performances of A Children's Rain Forest Odyssey, the signature work of Denver-based choreographer David Taylor, danced by ABC. The first weekend brings performances by Miami City Ballet. Weekend two, July 31 and August 1, ABC will share the stage with guest stars from New York City Ballet and Netherlands Dance Theater. ABC will dance Septime Webre's Fluctuating Hemlines and Dwight Rhoden's Black + White, premiere its new Trey McIntyre work, Like a Samba, and perform Balanchine's Valse-Fantaisie with NYCB guest artists Alexandra Ansanelli and Tom Gold. The festival closes with three performances by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. All performances take place at the Aspen District Theatre. In addition, the festival will present five days of flamenco music and dance, cabaret-style, at the Aspen Club Lodge.
