I am extremely excited to share some sneak-peek photos of our PR client ARCOS Dance‘s newest choreography. In just three days, the company is premiering its new work ‘The March,’ set to Joseph-Maurice Ravel’s infamous militant orchestral composition ‘Bolero‘ (1928). The ARCOS dancers amaze me every time I see them, and their rehearsal this past weekend was certainly no exception. Athletic partnering, high-energy movement reminiscent of toy soldiers and prancing horses, and whirlwind saber-spinning by three male dancers of ten-time world champions The Cadets Drum & Bugle Corps fill this new piece to the brim. It’s the definition of boundless energy, truly.
Here are a few of my favorite images from the night; I cannot wait to see the full performance this weekend with all the hats and feathers, bells and whistles (and swords!). Shows take place October 26-28 at NDI New Mexico Dance Barns in Santa Fe—co-sponsors of this event—at 7:30pm Friday and Saturday and 2pm on Sunday. Tickets range from $10-$20. Call 505-473-7434 for reservations.

Isn’t that death-defying backbend jump by Erica, Aurelie, and Kaitlin incredible? If only I could do that.
