Vitacca Ballet’s WOVEN takes the stage February 24

Vitacca Ballet is set to take the stage with WOVEN on February 24, 2024, at 2pm and 7pm at Charles Bender Performing Arts Center in Humble, TX. WOVEN features world premieres by Vitacca founding member, now current BODYTRAFFIC artists, Alana Jones Within this Façade and by Vitacca Ballet Master Tina Kay Bohnstedt FAMECEA. WOVEN will also bring audience favorites back to the stage including Hélène Simoneau’s Lighthouse, Grey Horses by Robyn Mineko Williams (originally created for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, 2013), and Overlap by Sean Aaron Carmon.

Vitacca Ballet’s annual production at Charles Bender Performing Arts Center expands the company’s reach into the greater Houston community and further cements a relationship that helped launch the professional contemporary ballet company.

Vitacca Ballet’s ability to bring international and vast artistic talent to the stage in Houston makes it a regional stand out. Artistic Director and Founder Kelly Ann Vitacca comments, “The company is grateful to have been welcomed with open arms into the greater Houston dance community allowing us to enter our third and most ambitious season yet. The countrywide community support has been tremendous, leading to our growth on and off stage. Now with 14 professional Company Artists our company embarks on another season of approachable, contemporary ballet. We are thrilled to bring the collective contributions of our incredibly diverse 2023-2024 Season Guest Choreographers to stage.”

This season strives to meld patron and artist with a mutual experience on and off the stage to further explore the symbiotic relationship of life and art. Ms. Vitacca comments, “Vitacca Ballet focuses on creating world premiere contemporary ballets that are thought provoking and allow patron and artist to share in a relatable experience. This provides a rebirth of dance awareness and the progression of ballet for all. Our goal is to root our company into the Houston dance community while we grow and mature along with our patron base.”

This season brings diverse, artistic minds together with the exciting growth of the company including the return of beloved company artists, Maddie Medina, Coltin Snyder, Fiona Dorr, Jordan Hooks, Joshua Ponton, Elissa Fonesca, Khen Kurulkar and new company artists Megumi Nishimori, Aidan Wolf, Nikolas Darrough, Elena Damiani, Ava Dempster, Zephaniah Casey, and Carrington Moser.
