Jul 20, 2017

Take a break from the heat and join Ballet Ariel for an entertaining performance that is fun for the whole family. Ballet Ariel is dancing excerpts from their exciting season of shows including ‘Cinderella’, and ‘Rikki-Tikki-Tavi’ in a free performance!

Ballet Ariel was founded in 1998 by Artistic and Executive Director Ilena Norton. Now in its 18th season, Ballet Ariel has evolved into a laboratory for developing original classical ballets, a collaborative environment where the beauty of classical ballet comes together with narrative storytelling and a contemporary vision. This professional company is known for its graceful and elegant, yet dynamic, choreography and staging.

Ballet Ariel also offers an exceptional pre-professional, classical ballet program and dance classes, giving young dancers an opportunity to reach for their dreams while also being a part of a creatively fertile dance environment.

Located in southeast Denver at 7808 E. Cherry Creek South Drive, Suite 209, the company employs twelve professional dancers under rehearsal directors Oleg Dedogryuk and Ballet Mistress, Patricia Renzetti. Ballet Ariel’s repertoire features original ballets such as Vincent Van Gogh, The Birth of Rock and Roll and now, Appalachian Spring, along with classical works including The Nutcracker and Cinderella.
