WE MENDED A FAILING

HEART ALIVE

AND KEPT THEIR ROMANCE

When you have that newlywed glow, everything seems rosy. So when Jean Richter started feeling short of breath, she wasn’t initially concerned. But then her symptoms worsened and her beloved husband, Dave, had to rush her to the Foothills Hospital Emergency Department. Jean was diagnosed with heart failure, a chronic condition that has a 50% survival rate within five years of diagnosis if not treated correctly. Luckily for Jean, Boulder Community Health now offers the only specialized Heart Failure Clinic in Boulder County. Dr. Scott Blois’s expertise with the latest treatment options set Jean on a remarkable journey back to a full active life. “I have a wonderful husband, five incredible daughters and 13 grandkids I adore,” says Jean. “I’m so happy we can hike, travel and have fun together again.” Read Jean’s story at bch.org/healinghearts or call 303-442-2395 for information about Boulder County’s first Heart Failure Clinic.

Welcome Welcome to our 2017/2018 season! The Boulder Ballet company is excited to be under way and we invite you to join us as the season unfolds. Our returning company dancers are Kelsey Byrne, Veronica Goldberg, Melissa Heslep, Phoebe Magna, Ryland Early, Matthew Helms, and apprentices Kate Adams, and Alexis Greenberger. This year we welcome new company members Carly Hambridge, Josh Nohrer, and apprentice Savannah Lee. The studios are filled with energy, music, and laughter. Please feel free to stop by the Dairy ARTS Center to watch some classes and rehearsals, and get to know Boulder Ballet up close. We performed the holiday classic The Nutcracker in November at Macky Auditorium with the Boulder Philharmonic and in December at Vance Brand Civic Auditorium with the Longmont Symphony. Our contemporary showcase 2018 Stepping Out included the powerful music of Leoš Janáček performed live by the dynamic piano duo Victoria and Dan Sabo, featuring dancers Kelsey Byrne and Matthew Helms with choreography by Ana Claire. Back by popular demand was another FANTASTIC collaboration by choreographers Amy Earnest and Lance Hardin with composer Michael Schulze. Also featured was a piece by Ryland Early, winner of the FACES of Boulder Ballet choreography contest, and a new multimedia work by choreographer Erin Tunbridge. Our spring story ballet is the beloved and haunting Giselle. The Boulder Ballet School students have been quite busy. Some of our advanced dancers had the opportunity to participate in two competitions: Denver Ballet Guild Young Dancers Competition and Youth America Grand Prix. Our new Storybook Ballet, Snow White, celebrates the joy of a favorite story brought to life in music and dance. This season, we have combined BB2 and Choreographers Showcase into one student show. BB2 is Boulder Ballet’s junior company consisting of our most advanced students. Choreographers Showcase is a platform for young aspiring choreographers to imagine and realize their artistic vision through dance. Enjoy the show and thanks for supporting live art in our community. As you may know, ticket sales cover only a portion of the total cost of any production. Thank you in advance for your donation. We appreciate your support so we can continue to dance and enrich lives. Dance with Joy,

Ana Claire Boulder Ballet Artistic Director


The origins of Boulder Ballet begin with the Ballet Arts Studio, founded by former American Ballet Theatre dancer Larry Boyette and British dancer Barbara Demaree, and located above Tom’s Tavern (now the restaurant Salt) at 11th and Pearl Street in downtown Boulder. The first performing company to grow out of the school, Boulder City Ballet, was founded in 1982 by Barbara Demaree and Wanda Tierney. In 1985 the company changed its name to Boulder Ballet Ensemble, and in 1995 to Boulder Ballet. Over this time, Boulder Ballet has had a number of strong influences including the versatile artistry of past artistic directors Milenko Banovich (Zagred Ballet), Robin Haig (Royal Ballet), and John Prinz (American Ballet Theatre). Since 1989, Boulder Ballet has enjoyed a partnership with the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra in presenting classical ballets complete with professional scenery, costumes, lighting designs, and casts of up to 100 dancers. Our rich history includes bringing classic, contemporary, and uniquely theatrical ballet to an audience that stretches from Estes Park to Highlands Ranch, in venues from the 2,000-seat opera house Macky Auditorium, to historic Boulder Theater in downtown Boulder, and to outdoor amphitheaters throughout the Denver-metro area. Artistic Director Ana Claire and Associate Artistic Director Lance Hardin continue to build on the proud tradition of artistic excellence through innovation. They have challenged their dancers and enlightened their audiences with the versatile productions from the contemporary Stepping Out to the classic The Nutcracker, to the timeless tale of Cinderella. Under their direction the company’s season continues to expand and performances now reach over 20,000 annually in the Denver Metro area. The Boulder Ballet School (BBS) provides ballet training for all ages, pre-school through adult, in a uniquely artistic and creative atmosphere. As a professional-track ballet school, BBS challenges students dedicated to pursuing dance as a career but also welcomes those who dance purely for enjoyment. BBS focuses on ballet technique because it is a beautiful art in its own right and a strong base for many other styles of dance. Under her direction since 1999 Ana Claire has successfully recruited an outstanding faculty with international performing and teaching experience. The seven-level curriculum is designed to produce well-rounded artists who achieve not only technical proficiency but also an essential expressive quality in their dancing. To achieve this, the classical ballet technique is augmented with modern dance, character dance, and physical theater. Such comprehensive training prepares students for the many artistic challenges demanded of today’s professional dancers. Our students have excelled in a number of competitions, including the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) where BBS students have won first-place awards and the regional Grand Prix (single highest award), and they have been invited to perform in New York City among the world’s finest young dancers. Former BBS students have gone on to dance with companies throughout the world, including American Ballet Theatre, Ballet British Columbia, Hubbard Street Dance, Mark Morris Dance Group, Miami City Ballet, Norwegian National Ballet, England’s Royal Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet, to name a few.

About Boulder Ballet


Boulder Ballet’s Commitment to Community Boulder Ballet has grown and flourished for more than thirty years on the Front Range; our roots are deep in Colorado. So, too, is our commitment to community through education and outreach programs. Our primary goal is to reach those students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience dance and movement.

IN-SCHOOL ASSEMBLY PERFORMANCE Since its inception more than a decade ago, Steps in Time remains a much-requested educational outreach program. Originally choreographed by Ana Claire, the assemblyformat program seamlessly illustrates the history of ballet and its continuing influence on all forms of dance. Through beautiful choreography, humorous narration, and powerful dancing by our professional company, Steps in Time moves students beyond stereotypes and opens their eyes to the precision, expression, and athleticism of ballet. Each year this lively, interactive education program is presented to over 4,000 students in five different Front Range counties. In particular, Boulder Ballet reaches out to a large number of Title 1 schools—often with few arts resources—and students in free/reduced lunch programs. For many of these children, it is their first exposure to ballet, and they love it.

IN-SCHOOL OUTREACH RESIDENCY PROGRAMS Boulder Ballet’s artist-in-residence program for elementary schools, Poetry of Motion, features a Boulder Ballet instructor in residence at the school for up to two weeks. This program is designed to make a long-lasting impact on the minds and hearts of the students through the integration of dance and movement into the school’s curriculum. Poetry of Motion is focused on teaching students the value of creative expression without judgment. Through the integration of dance and movement, the program inspires confidence in creative expression, joy in collaborating with others, and passion for interpretive dramatic art, all based around state standards for Physical Education. Using fun exercises and games, students explore the realm of bodies in motion and imaginative expression. The model is group-oriented and playful. The cumulative effect of immersion over a two-week period builds students’ skills and confidence. Piloted in 2015, Boulder Ballet brings a four-day in-school residency to the middle school level. The middle school program builds on past participation in the elementary program and introduces a cross-disciplinary element that directly links earth science, physical education, and arts curricula. The mission of the middle school program focuses on the 3 C’s: building community, developing students’ skills directly related to their school curriculum, and fostering creativity through dance, health, and fitness.


COMMUNITY PERFORMANCES Boulder Ballet is equally committed to the successful community outreach programs Nutcracker Preview Night and Ballet in the Park. Since 2005, we have reached over 16,000 underserved individuals who are frequently excluded from exposure to the performing arts. These two programs were specifically designed to remove the financial barrier to participation. For our Nutcracker Preview Night performance, Boulder Ballet works with key social-service organizations to distribute free tickets to the full-scale final dress rehearsal of The Nutcracker in collaboration with the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra. Our free, outdoor summer concert series Ballet in the Park also reaches out to lowincome families, teens in crisis, struggling single parents, and seniors on fixed incomes as well as the community at large in an effort to make the arts accessible to all.

ANA CLAIRE (Boulder Ballet Artistic Director) Although born in Boulder, Ana grew up on a ranch near Fairplay, Colorado. At the age of eight she saw American Ballet Theatre perform Swan Lake and fell in love with the art of ballet. In an extraordinary gift of support, Ana’s mother drove her to ballet classes in Denver throughout her childhood. Ana has studied ballet with Maxine Williamson, Fernando Schaffenberg, Milenko Banovich, Barbara Demaree, and Larry Boyette. She has performed with Fort Worth Ballet, Fort Worth Opera, David Taylor Dance Theater, Aladdin Theater, Boulder’s Dinner Theatre, Jan Justis Dance Company, and 3rd Law Dance/Theater, among others. Ana was a principal ballerina with Boulder Ballet for many years, and was twice voted “Boulder’s Best” by the Daily Camera. For over 20 years she has produced, directed, and choreographed an annual Storybook Ballet for the Boulder Ballet School, each with original music, scenery, and costumes created in collaboration with local artists. She has also choreographed all productions of Boulder Ballet’s Nutcracker since 2001. Ana originated Boulder Ballet’s acclaimed outreach program Steps in Time which has been performed at numerous schools throughout the Boulder/Denver area. Ana studied dance pedagogy at Texas Christian University, attended the teacher training workshop with former New York City Ballet principal Jillana, and has over 27 years of teaching experience. She is a passionate teacher, dedicated to helping students achieve technical excellence while nurturing their individual artistry, and many of her students have gone on to professional careers in dance. RYLAND EARLY A native of Boulder, Ryland Early has danced for Ballet West, Ballet Arizona, Nevada Ballet Theater, and most recently for Phoenix Ballet under the direction of Slawomir Wozniak. He has enjoyed performing the works of Stanton Welch, George Balanchine, Amy Seiwert, and Robert Dekkers throughout his career, as well as dancing classical roles such as Albrecht in Gisele, Von Rothbart in Swan Lake, and the Prince in Sleeping Beauty. This is Ryland’s second season with Boulder Ballet.

COLLABORATORS VICTORIA & DAN SABO have had very active careers as soloists and chamber musicians. After nearly twenty years of teaching at Minneapolis’ MacPhail Center for Music, they moved to Bellingham, Washington, where Victoria was founder and Artistic Director of Bellingham House Concerts, now in its eleventh season, and was recipient of a Mayor’s Arts Council Award in 2017. Dan and Victoria met at the University of Colorado. They soon commenced a career as duo-pianists, performing around the United States, even while pursuing graduate studies, which culminated in four years of study in Paris and Brussels. As duo-pianists, Dan and Victoria frequently performed Olivier Messiaen’s massive Visions de l’Amen. This led to a period of study with Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen, legendary pianist and wife of the composer, studies financed by Fulbright and Rotary Scholarships. Frequent performers in Europe, the Sabos also studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Brussels, where they were awarded the Higher Diploma, in Chamber Music, with great Distinction. As a chamber musician, Dan has performed with members of the Seattle Symphony, the Minnesota Orchestra, and Seattle’s Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra. Among highlights of the Sabos’ concerto appearances were a double-billing with the Whatcom Symphony, performing Poulenc’s 2-Piano Concerto (which they performed three years ago with Boulder Ballet) and Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals. Victoria has also had a substantial career as a composer, with numerous piano compositions included in Willis’ Pianovations Series. Her choral works have been issued by publishers such as Boosey and Hawkes (Wind on the Hill has sold over 500,000 copies, worldwide), she has been commissioned to write several ballets, and she was the Washington State Music Teachers Association 2009 Composer of the Year. The Sabos have recorded a CD of Czech piano duets. Dan has also recorded two CDs, one of Scriabin’s Preludes and the other of music of Chopin’s student, Joseph Schiffmacher. Victoria and Dan are avid outdoors-persons, including having summited all of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains. Dan and Victoria Sabo will be performing a two piano concert “Minimalism to the MAX!” on Wednesday, February 21 at 7:00pm at the Boulder Piano Gallery located at 3111 Walnut St. CDs of Victoria and Dan Sabo performing Dvořák and Janaček’s music are available in the lobby following the show. CDs are $10 each or 3 for $20. Please find Victoria or Dan to purchase. MICHAEL SCHULZE is a composer, music producer, audio engineer, video producer, singer, and musician. He initiated and directs the award-winning audio production baccalaureate program at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, where he holds the rank of Teaching Associate Professor. Before coming to Denver he was a lecturer and also Director of Audio Services at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Oberlin, Ohio. Mr. Schulze holds a Bachelor of Music degree from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he studied in the world renowned Experimental Music Studios. He appears as producer and engineer on recordings released by labels such as Chandos, JVC (Victor Japan), and Harmonia Mundi, by artists including Kartik Seshadri, the St. Petersburg String Quartet, Kaori Fujii, John Luther Adams, and eighth blackbird.

About Boulder Ballet School

Photo by Eli Akerstein

“In my career I have yet to see a ballet school that can match Boulder Ballet. That may sound like an exaggeration, but I honestly have not encountered another ballet school that can so successfully train professionals while including students that may not have professional aspirations.” –Ben Goodman The origins of Boulder Ballet begin with the Ballet Arts Studio, founded by former American Ballet Theatre dancer Larry Boyette and British dancer Barbara Demaree, and located above Tom’s Tavern (now the restaurant Salt) at 11th and Pearl Street in downtown Boulder. The first performing company to grow out of the school, Boulder City Ballet, was founded in 1982 by Barbara Demaree and Wanda Tierney. In 1985 the company changed its name to Boulder Ballet Ensemble and in 1995 to Boulder Ballet.


The Director of BBS since 1999, Ana Claire has successfully recruited an outstanding faculty with international performing and teaching experience. The seven-level curriculum is designed to produce well-rounded artists who achieve not only technical proficiency but also an essential expressive quality in their dancing. To achieve this, the classical ballet technique is augmented with modern dance, character dance, and physical theater. Such comprehensive training prepares students for the many artistic challenges demanded of professional dancers. Our students have excelled in a number of competitions, including the world’s largest, the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), where BBS students have won first-place awards and the regional Grand Prix (single highest award), and have been invited to perform in New York City among the world’s finest young dancers. Former BBS students have gone on to dance with world-class companies throughout the world including American Ballet Theatre, Ballet British Columbia, Hubbard Street Dance, Mark Morris Dance Group, Miami City Ballet, Norwegian National Ballet, England’s Royal Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet, to name a few. Boulder Ballet classes are held in our three spacious studios at the Dairy ARTS Center in central Boulder. In addition, The Gordon Gamm Theater — a 250-seat dance theater — is used for classes as well as performances. For more information, please email info@boulderballet.org or call 303.443.0028.
