Join us for our joyful return to the Long Center and the start of an exciting new season of live performances! JOY / 3 HAPPY DANCES BY STEPHEN MILLS premieres three contemporary ballets by Artistic Director Stephen Mills with music by favorite classical and modern-day composers. The Pink Confetti Dance is a playful homage to the court dances of yesteryear, set to effervescent music by Johann Sebastian Bach. Counterpoint has dancers bounding through fascinating patterns and canon work, while moving to the harmonic rhythms of Steve Reich. And Preludes/Beginnings is an uplifting and forward-looking piece, pairing dancer solos with powerful piano music by Frédéric Chopin. Find your happy place as we celebrate the JOY of dance!
Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich, Frédéric Chopin
