There’s a new way to kick off the holiday season in 2022: a one-day ballet performance called “Wintertides.”
This collaboration between the Connexus Dance Collective and the Colorado Youth Ballet is supported by the Colorado Ballet Society. Three components will comprise the Nov. 19 event: Liminal Spaces and Pathways by Connexus and Stella Natalis by the Colorado Youth Ballet.
Liminal Spaces is an energetic and electric piece that explores the “in between.”
“The work explores seasons of waiting, pausing, and transitioning and represents thresholds for the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual," said Laci Landry, one of the choreographers.
Pathways is a contemporary, abstract depiction of the different directions life can lead, intersecting in some places, and diverging in others.
And the premiere of Stella Natalis, which means “the star of origin,” interprets the Christmas message of peace, compassion and new life in a ballet highlighting 60 members of the Colorado Youth Ballet.
"The Colorado Youth Ballet Students are bringing their personalities to the Stella Natalis choreography, as well as their disciplined training,” said Kate Walsh Honea, artistic director for Colorado Ballet Society.
The Colorado Ballet Society’s 25th anniversary season also will include a Holiday Showcase, A Colorado Nutcracker, Don Quixote and more.
