Ballet Pensacola

Relive the Romance!

Ballet Pensacola revives the classic dance sequence that propelled the original film to the Academy Award for "Best Picture" in 1952.  This patriotic evening of dance is rounded out with a special performance of Stars and Stripes Forever!

The evening opens with Artistic Director Richard Steinert’s An American in Paris, a one-act ballet inspired by the 1951 Academy Award winning film of the same name. Steinert’s production is a contemporary adaptation of the original film, yet keeps a respectful camaraderie with the taste and aesthetic in which the movie is set.  Principal dancers Debi Janea and Brodrick Todd reprise the starring roles of “Jerry” and “Lise,” originally played by Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron in the movie. Janea is in her 7th season with the company after training at Ballet Pensacola Academy in her youth. Brodrick Todd is in his 3rd season with the company after training as a youth in Bremerton, Washington and performing professionally with Ballet Idaho.

The evening’s second act celebrates the American spirit with Richard Steinert’s and Christine Duhon’s Stars and Stripes Forever, featuring an exuberant  score with music from John Philip Sousa.  In true Ballet Pensacola fashion, Stars and Stripes Forever will offer surprises at every turn!
