Jubilee of Dance
“‘One-night-only performance’ means go, or you'll wish you would have.”
- The Houston Press
A fast-paced tour of programs past and programs yet to come, the annual Jubilee of Dance showcases the depth and range of the extraordinary Houston Ballet company. The great American ballerina Julie Kent, a principal dancer with New York's American Ballet Theatre, will make a special guest appearance at the Jubilee of Dance, performing the leading female role in Stanton Welch's Clear, a role she created at the work's premiere in 2001 in New York. Houston Ballet will also pay tribute to beloved first soloist Kelly Myernick, who is retiring after 14 years with the company. The evening concludes on a high note with a performance of Stanton Welch's blockbuster staging of Bolero, set to Ravel's mesmerizing score and featuring the entire company of 55 dancers.
