Ballet des Amériques Performs at Tarrytown Music Hall

Ballet des Amériques has the pleasure of announcing its next performance at the Tarrytown Music Hall, which will take place in April 2018. Ballet des Amériques has been the resident dance company of the Tarrytown Music Hall since 2017.

Ballet des Amériques was proclaimed Westchester’s premier dance company by the office of the County Executive. A company on the rise, Ballet des Amériques is gaining media attention in the New York City area as well as internationally on online platforms and with articles in printed publications such as Air France magazine, Hook magazine and Westchester Magazine featuring Ballet des Amériques and Artistic Director Carole Alexis.

The company will perform a diverse repertoire choreographed by Carole Alexis to the music of artists such as Mario Canonge and Maurice Ravel.

Become a part of the growing Ballet des Amériques community, and see the company perform locally in Westchester. The company is currently rehearsing and preparing for internationally touring in 2019.

Performances will be on Wednesday, April 25, at 7:00pm. Tickets are $25-$50. Tickets may be purchased online by visiting www.tarrytownmusichall.org or by calling the Tarrytown Music Hall box office at 914-631-3390.

Established in 2011 under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, as its name implies, inserts itself into the French cultural heritage of the Americas. Composed of classically trained dancers of diverse backgrounds, the young company has already danced the choreography of Carole Alexis in over 50 public performances beginning with its debut at the Festival de Fort-de-France in Martinique in 2011. As the resident dance company of the Tarrytown Music Hall, Ballet des Amériques is building on the success of its Evenings of Dance series to develop a regional dance audience in Westchester and neighboring counties. With its local roots and international orientation, the company is poised to grow its audiences beyond dance connoisseurs to reach those who have never been exposed to this art and especially young people, in conscious fulfillment of the educational function of dance in the spirit of Maurice Béjart.
