Posted by on 03.23.2023

On today’s episode of ‘Conversations On Dance’, we are joined by Ted Brandsen and Rachel Beaujean, Director and Associate Artistic Director of Dutch National Ballet. We are speaking to them in advance of the company’s first tour to the United States in 40 years, which is to take place at the Ballet Sun Valley festival in Sun Valley, Idaho. First, we talk with Ted briefly about his career and his directorship.  Then Rachel joins the conversation to discuss how they chose the repertoire for the upcoming tour and what they hope American audiences take away from the performances. Performances and additional events will be held this July 1st and 2nd and tickets can be purchased at balletsunvalley.org

• For our listeners in Hilton Head, and Charleston South Carolina, we hope you will join Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami as they tour to your area on March 22 thru 24th. A bold, cutting edge contemporary ballet company founded in 2016 by former Miami City Ballet Principal Dancers Jennifer Kronenberg and Carlos Guerra, DDTM has established itself with a dazzling repertoire and dynamic world class dancers hailing from various Hispanic, North and South American backgrounds. On March 24th, audiences will be treated to a full evening performance – a mixed bill program that will feature Gerald Arpino’s masterwork, ‘Light Rain,’ a main staple of the Dimensions’ repertoire since the company first brought the full ballet to South Florida in 2017.
