A “Timeless” Ballet

By Sarah McCartan

Staying true to the definition of the term timeless: without beginning or end; eternal; everlasting; Ballet Pensacola brings a truly “Timeless” production to the Pensacola Cultural Center—one that combines diverse classics in a methodical fashion.

The production presents what Ballet Pensacola describes as “an evening of classic works sprinkled with edgy ballets, presenting the athletic and captivating artists of the company in their very best light.”

While some of the production’s performances audience members may be widely familiar with, such as Swan Lake, others may offer unexpected elements of surprise.

“From the classic beauty of Tchaikovsky’s “Black Swan Pas de Deux” to Ballet Pensacola’s unique perspective on contemporary movement, “And so… The Millions,” this evening’s repertoire is certain to leave every audience member with the thrill of live theatre and provocative movement,” said Ballet Pensacola’s Artistic Director, Richard Steinert.

Ballet Pensacola cast members bring each individual story to life through captivating dance, keeping the energy flowing throughout the entirety of the evening’s performances, from beginning to end.

The audience can expect to see partners Kristen Springer and Tyler Day take the stage to dance “Black Swan,” while Kayla Bartlett and Samuel Joseph Mounce grab your attention for a captivating “Thunderstruck Pas.” Ballet Pensacola repertoire work, Christine Duhon’s, “Through the Windows,” offers the audience a look into the life of the everyday American.

Filled with fresh energy, this production closes out an exciting season for Ballet Pensacola, one that, in addition to home performances, included the ballet’s first touring program.

Ultimately, “Timeless” is a unique opportunity to see a collection of different works, both new and old. Ballet Pensacola confirms that although you will see pieces of “timeless” in years to come, it will not be back as a whole.

“Timeless” is sponsored by Emerald Coast Smiles by Design, Sacred Heart Health System, and Janet Ikeda and Peter Heckathorn.
