THE BALLET DANCE GROUP Ballet Dance Group Gives Premier Performance In Opp FORMERLY PRETTY LI GHT s6oo $1.00 Will Hold Until Christmas BILL'S DO LLAR GIRLS OR BOYS $1.00 Will Hold Until Christmas STORE $1.00 Will Hold Until Christmas REG. $4.00 The Ballet Dance Group, a small company of five dancers devoted to presenting ballet as a vital and enjoyable form of theatrical entertainment, proved their point in Opp last Wednesday evening as an im- pressively large audience from over southeast Alabama can now attest. It was the premier perfor- mance of the Southeast Alabama Arts AssoclatlonPs Series 70-71, a series conceived as an area effort to provide Live, high quality, artistic per- formances In southeast Ala- bama. The Association is assisted by the Alabama Coun- cil on the Arts and its acti- vities are coordinated at Enterprise State Junior Col- lege. Yuri Chatal and his Ballet Dance Group presented a well- balanced program of romantic and classlc repertory, me- ticulously correct in details of presentation and performance, and perfectly suited to the oc- casion and the audience. The five dancers, handling costume changes masterfully, presented their program with such aplomb and sparkle as to belle their small number. The evening moved along technically and artistically as if they were a large company with a battery of technicians. The program was wholesome fare for local music and dance lovers and wasp at the same t'me, an Ideal introduction to tliose Who had seen little or no ballet before. It was a special treat for the over one hundred dance and music students in the audience from Opp, Florala, Andalusia, Elba, Enterprise, and northwest Florida. The Brahms, Chopin, and Strauss music was familiar to all and the dancing was pure pleasure. The "Peasant Pas de Deux" from "Glselle" was an excellent selection to ex- hibit this classical structure in ballet, while the traditional Russian folk music, to which Mr. Chatal choreographed a gem of a dance, gave a touch of the folkheritage incorporated into ballet presentation. Mr. Chatal's "Summer Games", to music by Maurtce Ravel, was a charming opener, and his "Encounter" to "Ada- gio for Strings" by Samuel Barber was an experience in choreography and music pro- bably new to many in the audi- ence. It was an appropriate choice of music and theme, tastefully choreographed and beautifully performed. Mr. Chatal and his dancers gave their audience an enter- taining and educational exper- ience in music and dance, per- fect for the newcomer to bal- let and refreshing for moreex- pertenced ballet-goers. Most important of all, dancers and audience alike obviously en- joyed every minute of ttl NANCY HILSON IN COMPASS CLUB Nancy Hilson of Florala has been selected as a member of the Compass Club at I.~rleen B.
