Signature Series On Demand

March 13 @ 2:00 pm - April 10 @ 11:30 pm

Wichita Falls Ballet Theatre is pleased to present our 5th Annual Signature Series! We’re bringing three new pieces to the virtual stage in this year’s series featuring our WFBT company dancers as well as guest artists from Oklahoma City Ballet. We are thrilled to be able to utilize this digital platform to continue our mission of bringing the power of dance to our community. Of course, none of this would be possible without the unfailing support of our patrons. If you would like to offer additional support, we invite you to text a donation to 50155 using the keyword WFBT. All contributions are appreciated and allow us to continue to afford our young artists opportunities to pursue their dreams.

The first piece is an original work by WFBT Artistic Director Mishic Liberatore titled “Point in Time.” This piece pulls inspiration from what we’ve collectively experienced over the last year. It focuses on living in the present and learning to cope and react to situations and emotions as they arise. Just as the dancers were adjusting and finding ways to acclimate to the pandemic and its affects in their lives, they were exploring and finding new ways to move, to partner, and to push their emotions into their art form. The result is a powerful piece telling the story of this point in time.

Guest artists Sam Jones and Courtney Conner Jones perform a fun and engaging pas de deux for the second piece in the series. Choreographed by Sam Jones, this new work titled El Cha Cha de los Esposos showcases the push and pull in the relationship between husband and wife.

The final piece in this year’s Signature Series premieres Mishic Liberatore’s choreography in The Firebird, a retelling of the classic Russian folk tale. Prince Ivan works with the mystical Firebird to defeat the evil sorcerer Koschei and rescues the captured princesses. In doing so, he falls in love with the beautiful Princess Katarina.

We hope you enjoy this featured collection of new works in this year’s Signature Series!
