ARC School of Ballet (ASB) will present “Spring Dance” this weekend at the ARC Dance Space (9250 14th Ave NW). The performances will take place on Saturday, March 16th, at 4 p.m. and Sunday, March 17th, at 2 p.m.
Audiences can expect to be enthralled by a historical “May Pole” dance, other early dances and a classical ballet set to the music of Vivaldi.
The dance school has been presenting “Spring Dance” annually at their Crown Hill studios since 2009. For this year’s program Anna Mansbridge, of Seattle Early Dance, created historically accurate “Branles” from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
This year’s performance has been overseen by ASB Director Marie Chong. Chong also created a student version on her original work ” Carnival” for this weekend’s performances. “Carnival” was previously performed by the professional arm of ARC Dance Company in 2006 at Benaroya Hall.
“Spring Dance” is a family-friendly program that takes the audience on a journey through the progression of dance history.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children 10 years and under. Tickets are available in person at ARC (9250 14th Ave NW) or by phone at (206) 352 – 0798.
