Studio Sessions: Recovery

Studio Sessions: Recovery

Sunday March 31, 2019

Sunday April 7, 2019

City Ballet of Boston presents our first iteration of Studio Sessions; an in-studio event. In its inaugural year CBB enjoyed successful runs of our fall endeavor; Souvenir, and winter; Urban Nutcracker. These talented professional dancers and choreographers have volunteered their time to present two fabulous in-studio events in order to raise funds for future productions and support our dancers. We hope that you will join us to learn what we are all about and consider donating to our future. All proceeds will support our dancers and our upcoming season.


Studio Sessions: Recovery will present:

La Favorita by Tony Williams
Hot Mallets by Tony Williams
Danse Macabre by Gianni DiMarco

Don Quixote Grande Pas de Deux (3/31 only) with Christopher Philips and guest artist Ruth Bronwen Whitney

Studio Sessions: Recovery will also include a sneak peek of Recovery in Motion, which explores addiction and recovery set to poignant and humorous music and lyrics by Michael Graubart and Nancy Loedy. Mr. Graubart and band will perform live at the event for choreography by Gianni DiMarco, Tony Williams, and Morgan Brown Sanborn. Recovery in Motion will premiere during the CBB fall season at the Calderwood Pavilion.

Everyone is welcome, the show does include mature themes of addiction and recovery.

Raffle and light refreshments following the show! While this production features a dedication to the world of addiction recovery, alcohol refreshments will be served in addition to non-alcohol based soft drinks.

Can’t make the show, but still want to support CBB?  You can donate here, through PayPal Charitable Giving.
