Friends University Fall Ballet

Date: October 19, 2018,
Venue: Riney Fine Arts Center- Sebits Auditorium - 2100 W. University Ave. Wichita, KS 67213, Wichita

The Event:

Friends University will present the Fall Ballet, an evening of tradition and transformation. The performance will take place Friday, Oct. 19, and Saturday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 21, at 2 p.m. in Sebits Auditorium in the Riney Fine Arts Center.

“You will be a witness of dance works that depart from tradition, but that have sprung from a genuine expression of current personal relevance,” said Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre director of ballet and visiting lecturer of dance.

Guest choreographer Kathryn Alter created a collaborative piece inspired by the dancers. She is a longtime member of the Límon Dance Company in New York and is now steward of the tradition of the technique and repertoire.

The performance will also include a suite from Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty, and a solo piece from senior Shelby Fox.

This will be Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre’s first performance at the university.

Ticket prices for the Fall Ballet are $16 for adults and $13 for students and seniors (60-plus).
