Charlottesville Ballet’s professional company presents an eclectic afternoon of dance featuring classical favorites and new commissioned works.

The 90-minute performance includes the restaging of audience favorite “A Letter To My Love” by Rainey Lacey Jarrell (Atlanta, GA) created in 2011.

Take a “Sentimental Journey” through a time period that changed America forever. World War II inspired many women to join the workforce and become the infamous Rosie the Riveters. Watch as our Rosies live through the joys and trials of such an impactful time period. Includes music by – Rosemary Clooney, Vera Lynn, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and many other favorites from the Big Band era.

The concert also features classical ballet segments from The Firebird as well as choreography by company artist Mary Steward and CB Artistic Associate Dinah Gray.  Guest choreographer R. Colby Damon (Philadelphia, PA) premieres his third work for the Charlottesville Ballet with a new contemporary ballet called “Inevitable Resonance” – click the video below to see the interview!

The Firebird is a classic Russian fairy tale that combines all the elements of a great story: a handsome prince, a beautiful princess, an evil sorcerer, and magical creatures. This new children’s ballet production includes an interactive presentation where you’ll learn ballet steps and see the beautiful dancers that bring the story to life! Set to the powerful score by Igor Stravinsky, The Firebird is full of magic, romance, and adventure– a story sure to enchant and delight adults and children of all ages!

Also join us for “Into the Wings,” a special event on stage after the performance that’s perfect for boys and girls ages 3-8. Decorate a craft, learn a dance from The Firebird, and take pictures with the characters from the ballet! A special $25 all-inclusive ticket gives your child access to both the ballet and this private soiree!
