I just wanted to share my excitement over this new company in Phoenix -- Novaballet. They had two performances last summer, and will have two more plus host Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, this year. Choreographers include Emery LeCrone, Robert Dekkers, and Adam Hougland. While the dancers are not separately listed, looking at the photos, they appear to be primarily current and former dancers from Ballet Arizona and at least a couple from Nevada Ballet Theatre. Here's the link to their website: http://www.novaballet.com/index.html.

Very excited about getting to see Novaballet for the first time, this weekend. Choreography includes an excerpt from David Dawson's "Reverance." Michael Cook, previously of Ballet Arizona and now of Suzanne Farrell Ballet has created a piece, and there is a new work by Emory LeCrone, a standout in last year's National Choreography Initiative. The remaining piece is chreographed by David Palmer and Yanis Pikieris.

The performance is at the nearly-new Tempe Center for the Arts and tickets are $20-69.

Another note about this weekend's performance -- they are adding a piece by Robert Dekkers, and have announced that Giselle Doepker, now a student at Columbia University, will be performing in Dawson's "Reverance." Ms. Doepker danced a number of years in Ballet Arizona, then a year or so at Dresden SemperOper Ballet, where Mr. Dawson is the resident choreographer. For anyone interested, Novaballet has a Facebook page, in addition to their website.
