Reality Dance Studios REDC and RDCT will be performing at the
Saratoga Performing Arts Center Ballet Gala July 20th.
REDC company members and members of the RDCT will be performing two new pieces, “Ladies of the Lake “ “Selene” of which both pieces were created for and inspired by the theme of the gala: Apollo and his muses: A summer Celebration.
“Ladies of the Lake” is a contemporary ballet piece inspired by the legend of The Lady of the Lake, also known as Nimue or Vivienne. Nimue is thought to be related to Mneme, the shortened form of Mnemosyne, one of the nine water-nymph Muses of Roman and Greek Mythology who gave weapons, not unlike Arthur's sword, to the heroic Perseus.
“Selene” a contemporary piece is the portrayal of Selene, Greek goddess of the Moon and her reign over the night and movement in the sky.
This year’s Ballet Gala, Apollo & The Muses: A Summer Celebration, will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019.
