CK Dance Company's dynamic spring production opens with the long-awaited return of Marius Petipa's
Grand Pas from Paquita, an exciting work of classical variations set to the music of Ludwig Minkus.
Today in the ballet world, Paquita is performed as a one-act ballet that corresponds to the general canon of choreographic structures of a classical performance: entree, adagio, variations, coda. The leading dance couple starring guest artist, Joshua King and Maria Angulo, demonstrates the academism and the beauty of the classical ballet.
