Founders Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, armed with a rich Alvin Ailey lineage and a corps of 16 spectacular dancers, have re-envisioned ballet for the 21st century through technical precision, athletic prowess, and sheer passion. With these stunningly gifted dancers, the company presents two diverse and extraordinary works for its Athens debut: Bach 25, a celebration of timeless compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and Love Rocks, a lively rock ballet set to music by Lenny Kravitz.
Performances of Young People
This program is designed to expose K-12 students to the performing arts at a young age by facilitating in-person, culturally diverse experiences for them. The program’s purpose is to inspire the next generation of artists and arts supporters. The costs of these performances are generously subsidized by friends of the Performing Arts Center who share that vision. Parents, guardians, and teachers are encouraged to exercise their personal judgement when determining if programs are appropriate for their children and students. Admission to Performances for Young People is $2 for students and $4 for adults. Students must be at least six years old to attend. Large school groups should use the order form for reservations (forthcoming). Home school groups should contact the box office at (706) 542-4400 or in person Monday-Friday, 10:00 am-5:00 pm.
