Not your typical fare - The Guest Artist - one of NYC's lovliest exports. "Highlights" takes place in the historic SoHo dance studio loft of Rebecca Kelly Ballet, (since 1974). Here you have a chance to enjoy professional dance - behind the scenes, in its most intimate, authentic and creative setting. RKB dancers are about to depart for Guest Artist productions of the Nutcracker Ballet in Tennessee, Connecticut, uptown and upstate New York. RKB - where dances and dancers are made.
Each sparkling 45-minute event features RKB Soloists who appear as Guest Artists in regional productions of The Nutcracker. RKB's Behind the Scenes presentations have included the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Snow Queen solo, and selections from divertissements including the Arabian, Marzipan, Russian and Chinese variations, with theatrical costume and studio lighting. Each event includes a reception for guests to mingle with the artists and share refreshments and the famous "Tray of Sweets."
