Generation Variations

HGCBT Fall Concert, December 19, 2008

On Dec 19th, 2008 Hope Garden Children's Ballet Theatre presented "Generation Variations," comprising the new and the old, the very traditional and the contemporary in dance and music under the artistic direction of Fran Ichijo. The dancers performed the "classics" separated by 100 years...Tchaikovsky and Elvis, Beethoven and the Beatles. The students danced through history from European classics to American classics, showing the proud heritage of both eras. Good art is timeless, and memory serves us well when the music is pleasing and fun. Our large and enthusiastic audience enjoyed this production honoring our traditions in America and in classical ballet.

The concert featured seven solo pieces by our advanced students, performing classic roles such as Esmerelda and Odette, the Swan Queen.
