Ballet Kelowna Gets Ready to Launch to New Heights

2017/18 Season preview performance at the Rotary Centre for the Arts on         Thursday, October 5, 2017

Ballet Kelowna is once again offering a preview of the season’s dancers and upcoming performances at our fourth annual Launch event on Thursday, October 5 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.  Hosted by Artistic Director and CEO Simone Orlando, this event is open to the public and provides a unique opportunity to get ‘up-close-and-personal’ with Ballet Kelowna.

Launch is a one-hour informal showing that will preview new work from Ballet Kelowna’s 2017/18 Season and provide a glimpse into the Company’s daily training, rehearsals, and the choreographic process. 

“Ballet Kelowna’s 2017/18 Season marks the Company’s 15th anniversary,” says Orlando. “We have four world premieres scheduled plus the company premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire, our first full-length ballet.  At Launch, you will get a behind-the-scenes look at the exciting dance works we are preparing.”

Admission is by donation at the door with first come, first served seating. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
