Today: Bayer Ballet performs in Atherton

 

The Bayer Ballet Academy youth company will present "Springtime Novelettes," including a recital of variations from "La Bayadere" (The Temple Dancer) and "Swan Lake," on Sunday, June 12, at the Performing Arts Center at Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton.

The program includes folk-inspired Russian and Moldavian character dances, and an original retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, among other dances.

The two performances start at 1 and 4 p.m. at the high school campus, 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton.

Professional dancers, including Maykel Solas, a principal at Ballet San Jose, will join the Bayer Ballet Company for the recital.

The Bayer Ballet Academy was founded by Inna Bayer in 2005 to teach the Vaganova method of classical ballet to young students from the Bay Area. Ms. Bayer started the ballet company in 2010 to provide her dancers with pre-professional performance opportunities. She produces a spring and winter show each year.
