ASFB students soar to new heights

Kyle LaCroix, in the air, and Francesca Seeman perform in “Faust Divertimento,” which was choreographed by ASFB executive director Jean-Philippe Malaty. The piece, which features students in the advanced level, “is quite a bit longer than an average recital piece and is filled with entrances, exits, solos duets and trios,” ASFB school director Melanie Doskocil.

The School of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s annual spring recital opens tonight at 6 p.m. and continues with shows Saturday at 6 p.m. and a 1 p.m. matinee Sunday. More than 300 kids, ages 3 to18, will perform classical and contemporary ballet, pointe and jazz pieces. Here, Kyle LaCroix, in the air, and Francesca Seeman perform in “Faust Divertimento,” which was choreographed by ASFB Executive Director Jean-Philippe Malaty. The piece, which features students in the advanced level, “is quite a bit longer than an average recital piece and is filled with entrances, exits, solos, duets and trios,” said ASFB school Director Melanie Doskocil. “Dancing a piece like this, students get a better understanding of what dancing in a classical ballet is like, rather than taking a classical solo out of context.” Read more about the evolution of “Faust Divertimento” and the spring rectial in The Aspen Times’ Saturday Scene.
