Audiences at Ballet in the Park will get the first chance to see two of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s newly hired principal dancers in action.
Yun Wang and Yang Jiao, a married couple who formerly danced with China’s Liaoning Ballet, will perform the challenging pas de deux from Don Quixote as part of Ballet in the Park, July 27, 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m.
The shows at Assiniboine Park’s outdoor Lyric Theatre are free.
The rest of the 90-minute program is performed by accomplished students from the RWB School’s professional and recreational divisions. It features a diverse mix of styles, from classical ballet to edgy contemporary dance.
Show cancellations due to inclement weather will be announced by local radio stations and on the RWB website.
