We bet you have not seen a live performance in a while.
If you enjoy ballet, you have an opportunity to see a live but safe and socially distanced performance this Sunday at Wainwright House. Carole Alexis Company/Ballet des Amériques will be holding two live, consecutive performances on Sunday, November 8th, at 2pm and 4pm at Wainwright (260 Stuyvesant Avenue, Rye).
The internationally-recognized company will be performing an array of spectacular and moving works of a myriad of styles, choreographed by the inventive and ingenious Carole Alexis. This performance will be a part of the company’s Dancing Caravan Project. On October 24th, 2020, Carole Alexis Company/Ballet des Amériques completed their first show as part of that initiative—in NYC (at Gantry Park, making them the first company to perform at a NYC Park since the inception of the pandemic)—and was met with widespread fanfare; amassing a socially-distanced crowd of 300 people.
At a time when the doors of most performing arts institutions and theaters remain closed, Ballet des Amériques/Carole Alexis Company is determined to soldier on, under the auspices of its director and choreographer, Carole Alexis. Ballet des Amériques/Carole Alexis Company has embarked on an array of performances throughout the NY-metro area, and, ultimately, the nation and world. With outdoor, “pop-up,” mobile shows, the company aspires to provide safe, engaging presentations.
Ballet des Amériques/Carole Alexis Company’s dancers and Alexis’s poignant choreography relate to themes including peace, love, and diversity. Tickets are $40 and are available for the 2pm and 4pm shows (click to purchase). The performance will be under a tent, a maximum of 50 people will be permitted to view each performance and all COVID-19 guidelines will be followed. Masks are required. Tickets are non-refundable.
