Misako Ballet Company will be joined by several friends to present 'Spring Collage' at the Jim Rouse Theater on February 16th, 2014, at 2:00pm.

Spring Collage is made possible through the support of Amy Moran's Memorial Treasure Chest Fund, the Maryland State Arts Council, and Howard County Arts Council.

This concert will be a collage of dance, spanning across time and showcasing a diversity of cultures and styles.

Misako Ballet Company will offer variations from the ballet 'Paquita' and "Japanese Nursery Rhymes and Songs" choreographed by artistic director Misako Aoki. Woven into the ballet, "Japanese Nursery Rhymes and Songs" are the themes that reflect the four seasons in nature and the freedom and innocence of childhood. This cycle will include two new pieces: "Dreaming of Home" and "Orange Blossoms."

Eva Anderson, a guest choreographer will stage a triptych featuring a hand dance dating back to the 1920's performed by Tina Wilkinson & George Robinson.  William Goffigan, a drummer popular at Towson University and Goucher College will play "Blue Shoes." The piece will wrap up with "Elite Syncopations," a lively synopsis of popular dance performed to music by Scott Joplin.

Priscilla Kaufhold and her troupe, Barefoot Dance, will present "Bus Stop," a piece likely to bring smiles to the audience.

Corps De Danse for Opera AACC, whose artistic director is Megan Morse Jans, will perform a quirky sextet called "Voila." You can learn more about their company here.

Cellist Carolyn Rosinsky, accompanied by Chris Lennard on the marimba, will perform "The Swan" by Saint-Saens. Carolyn is one of 10 Rising finalists for the Celebration of the Arts competition. You can learn more about this talented young musician here.

Misako Ballet Company dancers are Carey Balinger, Cecilia Ituarte, Melissa Lineburg, Genevieve Havran, Jessica Markiewicz, Jessica McElvaney, Emily Runkle, and Amanda Wade.

Junior Company dancers are Madeleine Chen, Helena Davis, Tessa Hawkins, Amber Hodak, Emily Krause, Erin Rao, and Isabelle Zhan.
