Sierra Nevada Ballet will present BLUES AND BALLET AT BARTLEY 2007 as part of ARTOWN on Saturday, July 7, 2007.  This ticketed event promises to be a versatile and innovative production with something for everyone and a grand sequel to SNB9s highly acclaimed performance last year of BLUES AND BALLET.  Under the artistic direction of Rosine Bena, the program features Sam Weber in several new works.  Weber, known as the "fastest feet in tap" is considered one of the greatest tap dancers in the world.  Composer/musicians Susan Mazer and Dallas Smith will join him.  The program will showcase Joffrey dancer, Domingo Rubio, star of the Robert Altman film, THE COMPANY with SNB professional principals: Russian born, Eugene Petrov and Ananda Bena-Weber, Larissa Cassera, Mary Beth Beasley, Mariko Takahashi with soloists E. Cort Larson, Alexander Biber, Arthur Reloj and several new SNB professional dancers.  The program will include several young dancers from the SNB apprentice program and students from the Reno/Tahoe/Carson areas. 

Sierra Nevada Ballet9s "Dancing By The River II" and "Blues and Ballet at Bartley" (July 06 programs combining music and dance) received standing ovations from over 2,000 people in the audience.  SNB9s ARTOWN audience has grown 33% in the past five years, as returning members invite more and more friends.

This year9s Bartley program is expanded and promises to be an even greater crowd pleaser with music from all the greats in blues such as Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis and choreography to match each contemporary style.  There will be several new choreographic works by other choreographers including Sam Weber, Domingo Rubio, South African superstar choreographer, Sean Bovim and Ananda Bena-Weber and several pieces by Artistic Director, Rosine Bena with several original compositions by Susan Mazer and Dallas Smith.

Jack Neal reviewed SNB:  "at last a truly professional dance company is emergining in the Reno metropolitan area." Versatile and innovate, Sierra Nevada Ballet is the professional ballet company for Northern Nevada and incorporates the popular with the experimental.  Always a crowd pleaser, it offers music and different types of dance from well known classical to new age contemporary original pieces.  For more information, visit or call (775) 783-3223
