Bayer Ballet Company presents ... Springtime Novelettes
Come dream with us in an unusual classical ballet showcase!

Springtime Novelettes, is comprised of diverse pieces from classical and neoclassical ballet. In it you will experience the explosive joy of European character dances, take a journey through an enchanted forest, meet characters from classical ballet, and see demonstrations of the training that informs the art of ballet storytelling.

Professional dancers - including Maykel Solas, a principal at Ballet San Jose -- will join Bayer Ballet's youth company and students in this two part ballet show-case with two performances (1 PM and 4 PM) on June 12th, 2011 at the beautiful Menlo-Atherton Center for the Performing Arts.

Our program includes variations from La Bayadère (The Temple Dancer), Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Paquita, The Talisman, La fille mal gardée, Sylvia (ou La nymphe de Diane), and more, as well as lively folk-inspired Russian and Moldavian (character) dances. Children will especially enjoy Little Red Riding Hood, an original mini-story ballet with an unusual retelling of this classic fairy tale.

The world of ballet is diverse and capacious with room for both children's dreams and adult inspiration alike. Share our world and learn some of the secrets -- large and small - of creating an experience of the fantastic . classical ballet style!

One day only, with two performances at 1:00pm and 4:00pm Springtime Novelettes, Sunday, June 12th at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center in Menlo Park. Tickets $20.

The Bayer Ballet Academy (BBA) was founded by Inna Bayer in 2005 to teach the Vaganova method of classical ballet instruction to young students on the Peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area. The Bayer Ballet Company (BBC) was launched in 2010 by Inna Bayer to provide serious, pre-professional performance opportunities for young dancers and a showcase for our unique blend of classical, character and contemporary dance.

Ms. Bayer, a professional ballet mistress with extensive teaching experience in Russia, the Ukraine, Israel and the USA, led the school through significant growth in just a few years. Ms. Bayer's students have demonstrated exceptional results and have been accepted into prestigious summer programs including those of the Kirov and the Bolshoi ballet schools. Our 2009 Winter show "A Winter Tale" received an enthusiastic response from its audience of over 500 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.

Students in the academy range from age three through pre-professional level. For those interested in pursuing dance careers or those for whom classical training is an end in itself, the BBA offers excellent ballet training in a warm and friendly environment. Special attention is given to develop each child by focusing on their special strengths and talents.

Ms. Bayer produces two shows each year, one in the Winter and one in the Spring and the school recently started its youth company (Bayer Ballet Company) which also makes special appearances throughout the year.
