The Lake Tahoe Dance Collective presents it’s Winter Repertory program on March 18-20th in Tahoe City. The Dance Collective started as the Tahoe Youth Ballet in 2009 and has evolved into a company whose performers include the best local dancers as well as those from visiting dance companies. Directed by Tahoe raised, and New York City trained, dancer Christin Hanna, the collective’s mission “is to promote classical, modern and contemporary dance of the finest quality in the Lake Tahoe area through performance, education and outreach, enriching the community as a whole and as a cultural destination.”

The March performances includes the dazzling classic Paquita featuring guest Jakob Pringle and new works by Jacqueline Lopez of the Ballet Nacional de Mexico and Erik Wagner of the San Francisco Ballet. A highlight for locals will be a piece choreographed by Lake Tahoe Dance Collective and Alder Creek Middle School student 13 year old Isabella Terrazas from Truckee. “I like sharing my passion. I want others to experience it,” said Terrazas. Isabella has been dancing since she was five years old and this is her debut as a choreographer. Director Christin Hanna is quite impressed, saying, “she runs rehearsal like a badass.” Terrazas spent last summer training with the Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet in San Francisco and hopes to become a professional dancer in the future.

Performance Schedule:

Friday, March 18 7 pm
Saturday, March 19 2 and 7 pm
Sunday, March 20, 2 pm
All performances are at the Tahoe Art Haus and Cinema in The Cobblestone in Tahoe City.
Advanced tickets are $25 or $30 at the door. Discounts are available for students and seniors. For tickets go to laketahoedancecollective.org

Dance Festival: If you can’t make the Winter Repertory program, plan on being a part of the Dance Collective’s 4th Annual Lake Tahoe Dance Festival, between July 27-29th at the Gatekeepers Museum in Tahoe City.
