This week, CCM’s Dance Division welcomed guest artist Vivi Flindt of the Royal Danish Ballet for a spring residency. As artist-in-residence, Flindt will restage Act II of one of the first romantic ballets, La Sylphide, for CCM’s upcoming Spring Dance Concert.
Originally choreographed by August Bournonville in 1836, this beautiful white ballet epitomizes the ideology of the time, bringing to life through music and dance the duality of realism juxtaposed to the realm of dreams.
CCM’s Ballet Ensemble will be accompanied by the Concert Orchestra for these performances.*
