Event director Lina Downes, founder of San Juan Island’s youth ballet dance company, La Danse de la Mer ( the dance of the sea) has created an original romantic fantasy ballet for the evening, featuring the music of Frederic Chopin and Strauss. Northwest professional ballet dancers, brothers Sylvain and Danny Boulet (who have each performed internationally), will take on feature roles as well as ballerina Caitlin Ross, formerly of New York, Jeanne Peihl, originally from Riverside Ballet in California, and young islander Joely Loucks.
Ballet Folklorico Monarca, with members from San Juan Island, will perform with the dance company as well. Performance artist Cynthia Church will share a moving art piece set to part of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony; choreographed by Lina, it also features Shannon Kelly and Fiona Small.
