Boca Ballet’s July Performances Co-Star Professional Dancers

Sleeping Beauty Missy

Boca Raton, FL – Boca Ballet Theatre’s evening and matinee summer performances of “The Sleeping Beauty” masterwork will star Devon Teuscher, principal dancer from New York’s premier company American Ballet Theatre, and Roddy Doble from Les Grands Ballet Canadiens de Montreal.

“The Sleeping Beauty” is the epitome of traditional classical ballet. This production features Boca Ballet Theatre’s co-artistic director Dan Guin’s staging after Marius Petipa’s choreography and the hauntingly beautiful and famous score of Peter Tchaikovsky.

Performances are 7:30 p.m., Saturday July 30, and 2 p.m., Sunday July 31 in Countess de Hoernle Theatre at Spanish River High School, 5100 Jog Road, Boca Raton. Tickets are $35 to $45 online at https://www.bocaballet.org/season and at the theater one hour prior to curtain.

The corps de ballet (body of the ballet) will be comprised of aspiring dancers from throughout the United States that are here participating in Boca Ballet Theatre’s advanced workshop and audition series with five artistic directors from major dance companies. “These are serious dancers seeking professional opportunities,” Guin said.

“Boca Ballet Theatre attracts the most accomplished professional dancers from major ballet companies for our productions. Now in our 31st season, we have a reputation for professional production values, including our scenery, lighting and costumes,” said Guin, co-artistic director with his wife Jane Tyree.

“Until the planned performing arts center is built in Boca Raton, we will continue to use the Boca Raton high school theaters with fly lofts (the ability to move scenery up and down) for our performances.”

Boca Ballet Theatre is also known for its annual performances of “The Nutcracker,” with a children’s “Gingerbread Ball” meet-and-greet with the cast after a matinee performance.
