About the Boulder Phil

Under the vision and leadership of Music Director Michael Butterman, the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra is celebrating its 57th year of providing outstanding orchestral music highlighting the creative talents of our own unique community. The Boulder Phil is a critically acclaimed professional orchestra, presenting performances nine months out of the year and employing a core of 72 of our region’s most highly trained musicians. Voted “Best Classical Music” multiple times by the readers of Boulder Weekly, the Boulder Phil’s main performance venue is Macky Auditorium on the CU-Boulder campus, a historic concert hall which recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. The Boulder Phil’s Masterworks series—broadcast across the state on Colorado Public Radio—features a dynamic mix of masterpieces and promising new works, highlighting both accomplished and emerging guest artists with a special emphasis on Boulder’s own creative community. The orchestra’s broad reach in the community includes special events such as the annual co-production of The Nutcracker with the Boulder Ballet and “Café Phil” open rehearsal nights at the Dairy Center for the Arts. The Boulder Phil also works to inspire the next generation of music-lovers through its Discovery Concerts reaching 4th and 5th grade students across multiple counties. Founded in 1958, the Boulder Phil became a fully professional ensemble under the leadership of Theodore Kuchar, who began his tenure as music director in 1996. Michael Butterman was named music director in 2006, bringing a strong emphasis on education and outreach, as well as a creative approach to programming that includes a focus on collaborations with other local artists. Under his direction, the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra reflects and fosters all that makes Boulder special—its creativity, spirit, beauty and quest for knowledge. By connecting people to orchestral music, the Boulder Phil strives to be an essential part of our community's cultural fabric.

About the Boulder Ballet 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. The first performing company, 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. 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. The Boulder Ballet Company has grown and flourished with its community for 30 years. Our rich history of bringing classic, contemporary, and uniquely theatrical ballet to an audience that stretches from Estes Park to Highlands Ranch is enjoyed by those attending. Barbara Demaree who saw the West as open, inviting, and eager to embrace the arts, planted the seed of classic Western European Ballet amidst the beauty of the American West. Boulder Ballet is the result of the community’s nurturing of that seed, having embedded deep roots and grown to new heights. The regional company has had a number of strong influences including the versatile artistry of Milenko Banovich (Zagred Ballet), Robin Haig (Royal Ballet), and John Prinz (American Ballet Theatre). Artistic Directors for the past nine years, Ana Claire and Peter Davison have continued 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. Peter Davison’s own creative choreography is a mesmerizing synergy of dancers and unusual props. Peter’s innovation was recognized with the 2009 New York Ballet Builders Award, which resulted in Boulder Ballet’s New York premiere of his critically acclaimed Cirque D’Amour. With a profound respect for their art, the duo has expanded and refined the company’s season to over 20 performances reaching over 20,000 in the Denver Metro area and beyond. 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. The Director of the Boulder Ballet School 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. A particularly unique feature of the school is the largest dance program in the region developed specifically for boys. Geared towards ages seven & above, this program includes Boyz Dance – a unique mix of dance, mime and juggling – and Boys Ballet which focuses specifically on the male classical technique. 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 Boulder Ballet School 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 Center for the Arts in central Boulder. In addition, the Dairy Performance Space – a 250-seat dance theater – is used for classes as well as performances. Boulder Ballet School is now accepting enrollment for the spring 2014 semester beginning January 13th. For more information, please visit www.boulderballet.org, or call 303.443.0028.

Each year, Boulder Ballet’s professional company presents a variety concert of original dance/theater works at the Dairy Center for the Arts that is one of the most anticipated events of the season. This season’s concert, Stepping Out 2014, will present a variety of approaches to the art of ballet today. Guest choreographer James Wallace, a former Artistic Director of Denver’s acclaimed Dawson/ Wallace Dance Project and winner of the Ballet Builders Award for New Choreography, will create a new work for Boulder Ballet’s stunning company of dancers. Mr. Wallace torques classical technique, including dance en pointe, to extraordinary new movements and images. The performance will also include contemporary works to a variety of music by resident choreographer Alex Davison, a former dancer with Miami City Ballet, and Artistic Directors Ana Claire and Peter Davison. Stepping Out 2014 is appropriate for audiences ages 7 and up.

Boulder Phil Educational Outreach

The Boulder Phil performs for 4th and 5th grade students each year in Macky Auditorium.

• Discovery Concerts introduce 4th and 5th graders throughout the Boulder Valley School District and beyond to live symphonic music. Using a tailored Curriculum Guide that complements their core music curriculum, educators prepare students for the 50-minute interactive performance at Macky Auditorium – an experience that many students describe as “the best field trip of the year!” To sign up your school for the next Discovery Concert at Macky on April 24, 2014, contact Sarah at sharrison@boulderphil.org. • “Michael Butterman Goes to School” Visits are a key part of the Phil’s Discovery Concert program, as our Music Director visits classrooms to introduce students to musical concepts, instrument families, music appreciation skills, and more. • Side-by-Side Youth Concerts feature talented young musicians from Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras and Front Range Youth Symphony alongside professional musicians from the Boulder Phil, who provide valuable mentorship to these students as they rehearse and perform together. • Young Artist Concerto Competition is open to all young musicians in Colorado, who compete for an opportunity to perform as a soloist with the Phil. • $5 Student Tickets to every Masterworks concert make attendance easy for young people, up to and including college students! Phone or walk-up sales only. Your financial gift or volunteer work in support of our education programs is critical to our success in enriching our community through music. For more information on becoming involved, please contact Kevin Shuck at 303-449-1343, ext. 3.

Boulder Ballet’s Commitment to Community Boulder Ballet Artistic Director Peter Davison once said, “Everything we do grows out of community.” He was not just speaking of choreography and artistic vision. He was also speaking of the impact of sharing and connecting through the art of ballet. Boulder Ballet has grown and flourished for more than a quarter of a century on the Front Range; our roots are deep in Colorado. So, too, is our commitment to community through our education and outreach programs. Since its inception more than a decade ago, Steps in Time remains a much-requested educational outreach program. Originally choreographed by Ana Claire, the 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. Students of diverse backgrounds are exposed to an early and enriching live arts experience in the comfort and security of their own schools. 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. Boulder Ballet’s artist-in-residence program, 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 curricula. Poetry of Motion enables students to explore their world through observing, moving their bodies, and interacting with familiar objects and each other. One teacher responded, “Thanks to the Boulder Ballet for introducing movement and drama to kids this way. It is a much needed skill for our students to gain body awareness and confidence. And it is even more needed for children whose lives are so filled with test preparation and testing, and rarely get the opportunity to express themselves and move!” Boulder Ballet is equally committed to the successful community outreach programs Open Rehearsals and Ballet in the Park. In the past nine years, we have reached over 15,000 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. Through Open Rehearsals, Boulder Ballet works with key social-service organizations to distribute free tickets to full-scale dress rehearsals of our major productions–including the ever popular Nutcracker in collaboration with the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra. Our free, outdoor summer concert series, Ballet in the Park, also reaches out to low-income families, teens in crisis, struggling single parents, and seniors on fixed incomes. In an uncertain economy, these programs become even more essential in making the PHOTO: TOM ESPINOSA arts accessible to all.

Our Nutcracker Story Act One It’s Christmas Eve and a young girl, Clara, is put to bed by her parents as they leave for a party. Quickly asleep, she dreams she is at a festive Christmas Eve party in a strange home, surrounded by family and friends. Clara’s godfather, the mysterious Drosselmeyer, arrives and entertains the children with magic tricks, juggling, and life-size dancing dolls. He gives Clara a nutcracker doll that she adores, but her brother Fritz is envious and steals it, tripping and breaking it. Magically, Drosselmeyer quickly mends it with his handkerchief. The party ends and Clara goes off to bed, forgetting her nutcracker doll. When she returns to look for it in the darkened living room, she finds Drosselmeyer still there. Suddenly, midnight strikes and strange things begin to happen. Human-sized mice dart through the shadows, the Christmas tree grows to astounding heights, and huge rats appear, led by the fearsome Rat King. Then toy soldiers and the Nutcracker (also large as life) march in to protect Clara and engage the rats in a fierce battle. When the Rat King strikes the Nutcracker to the floor, Clara takes her shoe and swings a fatal blow to the Rat King’s head. The battle over, Clara finds herself in a snow-covered forest, and discovers that she has become a young woman. Then she sees that the Nutcracker, recovering from the battle, is now a handsome prince. They embark together on a journey through a snow-covered forest with dancing snowflakes and frost.

Act Two Continuing to dream, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince are led by Drosselmeyer to the realm of angels, who escort them to the Land of Sweets. They are welcomed by dignitaries who present them to the queen, the Sugar Plum Fairy. She asks how her visitors won admission to her land and the Prince reenacts the battle with the Rat King including Clara’s heroic rescue. The people of the Land of Sweets rejoice over the victory and award Clara a crown and the key to their realm. The Sugar Plum Fairy delights Clara and her Prince with a tour of her domain. Dancers from Spain, Arabia, China and Russia entertain the visitors. The Mirlitons, dancing to the music of reed flutes, and a larger-than-life Mother Goose and her nursery rhymes dance too. Next, the Sugar Plum Fairy herself dances for the guests. Then Clara and her Prince walk with other couples in a garden of waltzing flowers and are inspired to perform a pas de deux of their own. As the people of the Land of Sweets reappear, it’s time to leave. Clara awakens from her dream, once more a little girl. But then, Drosselmeyer appears and places her nutcracker doll in her arms before vanishing. Was her dream real – or is this a dream yet to come?

Artistic Directors ANA CLAIRE is the Director of the Boulder Ballet School, which has more than tripled in size under her direction. 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 then 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 21 years she has produced, directed, and choreographed an annual Storybook Ballet, each with original music, scenery, and costumes created in collaboration with local artists, and co-choreographed the 1998, ‘99, and all productions since 2001 of Boulder Ballet’s Nutcracker. 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. PETER DAVISON brings 38 years of diverse performing experience to his role as Co-Artistic Director of Boulder Ballet. His childhood idols were Alexander Calder and Batman, influences that led to training in visual art, juggling, and dance. While a teenager, Peter began his professional career street performing in Los Angeles, and as a variety artist for Hollywood films, such as Xanadu with Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly. He moved to Boulder in 1980. Peter studied ballet with Larry Boyette, Ana Claire, Barbara Demaree, Finis Jhung and Donald Mahler; modern dance with Danelle Helander, and tap with Susan Hadley and Lynn Dally, among others. In 1982 Peter became a founding member of the juggling and dance trio Airjazz with whom he appeared at venues such as the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, New Zealand International Festival of the Arts, BAM, and the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Peter has also been a member of David Taylor Dance Theater, Jan Justis Dance Company, Kim Robards Dance, 3rd Law Dance/Theater, and performed principal roles with Boulder Ballet from 1987 to 2000. He has toured his solo work throughout the U.S. and to Canada, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Netherlands and Spain, and has appeared as a featured soloist on the CBS, BBC and Fox television networks. Peter has received numerous awards and grants including the Arts Innovation Award from the Colorado Federation of the Arts, and the Performance Fellowship from the Colorado Council on the Arts. Peter has choreographed works for several Colorado-based dance companies and schools. In 2009, excerpts from his Cirque D’Amour were performed by Boulder Ballet in New York City following his receipt of the Ballet Builders Award for New Choreography.

magine waking up in the morning, pouring your first steaming cup of coffee and stepping out from your spacious kitchen into your own private courtyard. The sun is rising and you hear the trickling water from your fountain and the quiet sounds of nature beginning the day. You nestle into your favorite outdoor chair, gaze into the beautiful clear skies, take a deep breath of the fresh Colorado air and appreciate being home. Later that day, you stroll down one of the scenic walking trails within the Goldbranch community. You stop to say hello to your neighbors as they enjoy a game of Bocce on one of the courts located in Goldbranch Village. You notice a red-tailed hawk landing in a towering blue spruce, and appreciate the wildlife you’re able to see along the riparian corridor that forms the northern properly line. The sun is beginning to set, painting the Colorado skies pink and gold. Your friends are about to arrive for a leisurely evening of dinner and reminiscing about your recent trip to Europe. There's no need to worry or stress; in this low-maintenance community, your yard work has already been done. Just before your guests arrive, you light your outdoor fireplace, pour yourself a glass of wine from your wine cellar, and watch the bright stars begin to emerge over the Rocky Mountains. After an enjoyable evening, as you rest comfortably in Goldbranch's private enclave, you think, "Life doesn't get any better than this."

Homes starting at $1,500,000 Exclusive 17 Lot Subdivision For more information contact Temaat, Pat Goldbranch Estates, Niwot (Boulder County), CO • 303.652.0510 www.GoldbranchEstates.com • sales@goldbranchestates.com
