The Ventana Series, the UA Dance 2018/2019 season, is your window to remarkable dance created by renowned choreographers from around the globe, as well as right here in Tucson. The season opener, Premium Blend, brings together the work of two of the “greats” of our time; Panorama by Martha Graham and Concerto Barocco by George Balanchine.
And it doesn’t stop there. Dances From the Heart in February captures the essence of the love-filled month, and the idiosyncratic Megalopolis, by New York based choreographer Larry Keigwin, is on the bill for Spring Collection alongside new faculty creations. Throughout the season UA Dance offers cutting-edge performances curated in their signature blend of ballet, modern, and jazz dance.
Propelled by the work of internationally known faculty and guest artists, the UA Dance Ensemble has made fourteen trips to Europe, Asia and South America. Other important engagements in the U.S. have included two dance festivals at the Joyce Theatre in NYC, an invitation to perform for the Capezio Awards, also in NYC, and performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
The Ensemble, with some 150 dancers, performs more than 40 times a year and has as its home the award-winning Stevie Eller Dance Theatre on the UA campus. UA Dance has presented, as part of its repertoire, the works of George Balanchine, Paul Taylor, Martha Graham, José Limón, Ben Stevenson, Donald McKayle, Anne Reinking, Jerome Robbins, Christopher Wheeldon, Darrell Grand Moultrie, Alexei Ratmansky and others.
As the 2018/2019 season approaches, here is your opportunity to become immersed in world-class repertoire created by both UA Dance faculty and brilliant guest artists.
