Nevada Ballet Theatre celebrates with three dynamic pieces of Classic Americana.  Beginning with George Balanchine's Serenade, his first ballet choreographed in America and one of his most visually arresting and emotionally stirring. Set to Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, Balanchine's choreography will leave you breathless.  Following will be Paul Taylor's Company B.  This jiving journey back to World War II embraces all the merriment and sacrifice intertwined in everyday American life.  Taylor's contemporary choreography is coupled with iconic recordings from The Andrews Sisters, making Company B a dancing-in-your-seat delight.  Closing the program with a high energy splash is Balanchine's rollicking Western Symphony, a carefree tale of a dusty Wild West town filled with rambunctious cowboys and free spirited dance hall girls ready for a night of fun.  An afternoon blend of classical ballet and American folk dance!
