Save the Date! Ballet Concerto’s Outdoor Summer Dance Concert
Celebrate the art of dance al fresco at Ballet Concerto’s 39th annual outdoor SUMMER DANCE CONCERT on the lawn at The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth. Ballet Concerto’s 2021 concert will be presented Thursday, Friday, and Saturday June 24, 25, 26, & 27 at 8:30 p.m. each night.
Four spectacular ballets are planned for each night’s performance. Ballet Concerto engages choreographers of national and international renown, and favorite professional dancers from ballet companies throughout the United States will return to perform.
Presented on the program will be Goyescas, which received its Ballet Concerto premiere in 2006 with choreography by Spanish dance master Luis Montero. Other works to be presented are Ballet Americana with choreography by founding artistic director Margo Dean with staging by artistic director Webster Dean, Haydn String Quartet in D minor by Ruben Gerding, professor of ballet at Southeast Missouri State University, and Ouroboros with choreography by Ballet Concerto resident choreographer Elise Lavallee.
This will be the second year presenting on the lawn at The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth, which is located at 5188 Monahans Avenue in Fort Worth. The site has adjacent parking that accommodates 800 cars. The performance site is situated amid numerous retail and restaurant businesses and has ample space for a large crowd that can socially distance as much as needed.
