Swan Lake

September 25

Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece Swan Lake is often called “the ballet of all ballets,” and this month, local audiences will have the opportunity to see why. Founded by graduates from several of Moscow’s top choreographic schools, the Russian Grand Ballet boasts some of the world’s most magnificent dancers and experienced directors. This September, the lauded company will be presenting Swan Lake at the Palace Theatre for the Performing Arts in Stamford. This full-length, classic production presents Tchaikovsky’s tale of romance and deception in all its breathtaking glory.

 

Ballet des Amériques

October 1

The Port Chester-based Ballet des Amériques School and Conservatory is one of Westchester’s true cultural treasures. Founded by celebrated choreographer and dancer Carole Alexis in 2011, the organization stands as the county’s premier institution for the instruction of dance and ballet. This October, Westchester audiences will have a chance to see this incredible talent on show when the company presents a duo of new works by Alexis, as well as pieces from the company’s repertoire at the Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown.

 

Vertigo Dance Company 

November 4

Sometimes, things are just meant to be. When Israeli dance sensations Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha’al’s first collaborated, they knew it had been fated. The two soon married and, in 1992, founded the internationally renowned Vertigo 20 Dance Company. Onstage at Fairfield University’s Quick Center for the Arts, Vertigo blends several styles and movements to redefine the limits of modern dance while furthering an environmentally sustainable worldview.
