CTAC School of Ballet Presents Annual Showcase: “Fall for Dance”
“Fall for Dance,” the eleventh annual student-orchestrated performance put on by the Crooked Tree Arts Center School of Ballet, takes place on Sunday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m. at the Harbor Springs Performing Arts Center.
This year, “Fall for Dance” is exploring questions. The student choreographers have each come up with questions that their pieces explore, answer, or present to the audience through movement. Some queries being explored are: “Does passion create repetition?,” “Where do dreams come from?,” and “Is simplicity enough?”
Twenty-five dancers will perform, including both Pre-Professional and Intermediate Advanced level students. Eleven Pre-Professional choreographers have set work on fellow students, and Pre-Professional students, Natalie Bonter and Haley Van Patten, are directing the production.
CTAC School of Ballet students are responsible for choreography, costuming, music selection, lighting, directing, and scheduling and running rehearsals for “Fall for Dance.” This gives students the opportunity to explore an element of the dance world that most are never able to experience. This opportunity further allows students to discover their voice, passion, and talent, helping them to find the path they may choose to pursue professionally.
All proceeds from “Fall for Dance” directly support the Harbor Springs Performing Arts Center. Past proceeds have helped provide Marley floor, stage backdrops, headsets for the hearing impaired, and stage lights.
Tickets can be purchased at Crooked Tree Arts Center or at the door at the Harbor Springs Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students, and may be purchased with cash or check only.
