Aggie Ballet Celebrate 1’St Spring Show
In April 2023, Aggie Ballet Company’s first annual spring show embraces various works, including pieces choreographed by our members. This “Night at the Ballet” program features a variety of dance works from traditional repertoire and emerging choreographers. “We’ve had different members step up, and we showcase original work. Our performance company also performs as a group, and various members do solo variations.”
“Several of the students have choreographed pieces, and they’ve put so much work into setting the dance, choosing their dancers, and connecting their rehearsals. Since we’re a student-run ballet company, we are all involved in putting on the production, so there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work that we learn about together,” Maya Sela said.
Special Needs Team Performance
In addition, a special need dance team performed on stage with big applause from the audience. Profits from the ballet performance will be donated to support this special needs dance team from Shelli Kruger’s Dance Studio. Several Texas A&M volunteer their time to teach these kids, and Miss Kruger, the school head, is so grateful for any help she can get.
