Leaves You Breathless, A Fall Mix

In recognition of our milestone 10 year anniversary, Durham Ballet Theatre is proud to be hosting its inaugural Fall Showcase featuring Durham Ballet Theatre's year-around company members! These performers worked hard this summer with Canadian choreographer Mark Godden and will premier his new work at this event.

We will also feature special guests from the community including The Repertory Dance Company at NCCU (with choreography by Kristi Vincent-Johnson), a new work by Tracey Durbin, a selection of classical variations from ballet’s masterpieces, and additional surprises!
