Torrington, CT – Nutmeg Conservatory Founding Director Sharon Dante and Artistic Director Victoria Mazzarelli invite you to experience the joy of dance at The Nutmeg’s Dance Jubilee, May 16-18, 2019 on the Warner’s Main Stage. The Jubilee takes place over the esteemed ballet conservatory’s graduation weekend, and is the culminating event of not only the 2018-2019 dance season, but of the school’s first 49 seasons.
“Time flies when you’re having such fun,” said Dante. “The first 49 years have seen growth not only for Nutmeg and its students and staff, but certainly for our entire arts community in Torrington. Nutmeg has become a significant economic driver for our unique little city nestled in the northwest Connecticut foothills. It is only right that we should celebrate this milestone on the Warner Main Stage since we were so involved with re-opening the Warner in 1984.”
The Jubilee performances will feature a mixed repertoire, from classical and neo-classical ballet to modern and jazz. The line-up includes excerpts from Paquita, staged by Eleanor D’Antuono and Denise Limoli, featuring Nutmeg dancers and students from the Torrington School of Ballet. The Nutmeg dancers will also perform original works by Momix, Kirk Peterson, and Kate St. Amand; as well as an encore presentation of last year’s “Jazz With Charlie,” a collaboration between Victoria Mazzarelli and Charlie Patterson, featuring live music performed by JINQS.
Performances of The Nutmeg’s Dance Jubilee are May 16 and 17 at 7 pm, and May 18 at 2 pm. To purchase tickets, call the Warner Box Office at 860-489-7180 or visit warnertheatre.org.
