CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet will close Wilson’s 2010-11 Performing Arts Series with a performance to be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 2, in Laird Hall.

CPYB will perform a portion of the grand staging of Laszlo Berdo’s Swan Lake, famed choreographer George Balanchine’s thrilling Raymonda Variations and a dramatic world premiere of choreographer Hazel Sabas-Gower’s Green.

Green embodies the four essential elements of nature - earth, water, air and fire - and is dedicated to the treasured memory of Sabas-Gower’s father, who loved music and found joy in the accordion.

Set to Tchaikovsky’s remarkable score, Swan Lake recounts the struggles and triumphs of love in the captivating and tragic tale of a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer.

Playful and filled with flowery lightness, Balanchine’s Raymonda Variations is a thrill for classical ballet lovers set to the music of Alexander Glazounov.

Founded in 1995, CPYB is a nationally and internationally recognized school of classical ballet headquartered in Carlisle. CPYB’s mission is to inspire, educate and enrich the lives of our students and the region through training in, and the performance of, classical ballet.

Under the guidance of founding artistic director Marcia Dale Weary, CPYB provides exceptional dance training for beginning to pre-professional dancers in central Pennsylvania, and enhances the cultural climate of the region through ballet performances.

More information about the ballet can be found at its website: www.cpyb.org.
