Calling all swans. An artistic collaboration takes flight.

 

 
Post from Margo: We got a last minute call last week to help spread the word about a new dynamic-dance-duo in town: Kevin Kaiser and Patricia Barker, both Pacific Northwest Ballet "alums". Kevin became the Artistic Director at Evergreen City Ballet in January and opens Swan Lake Friday. Who's helping whip those ECB swans into shape? Returning recently from coaching the Slovak National Ballet in their production of Swan Lake, Patricia has flown south to help.

 
 
More news to come on this collaboration, but if you need a fresh ballet fix, head south this weekend to Renton's IKEA Performing Arts Center at 400 S 2nd Street, Renton WA on Friday, April 11th at 7:30 pm; Saturday, April 12th at 1:30 & 7:30 pm; and Sunday, April 13th at 1:30 pm. Further information and tickets are available at www.evergreencityballet.org

Check out Barker's great new “do”. (Photo by Chris Clark.) When we saw her recently she quipped: “my hair's even shorter than yours.” And so much cuter!
