ABOUT Q DANCE
The mixed repertoire program features two World Premieres – a new creation from Q DANCE visionary and international choreographer Peter Quanz and a new work from New York City-based dance innovator, Gabrielle Lamb. This year also marks the return of Quanz’ neoclassical work Untitled. Premiering in 2013 and set a string orchestra score by Peteris Vasks, Untitled is a raw emotional journey into a community where trust is required yet constantly questioned. For one performance only, June 10, renowned guest dancers Amar Ramasar (New York City Ballet, Principal Dancer) and Rebecca King (Finnish National Ballet, Soloist) perform Blushing, a duet to Lana del Rey’s Young and Beautiful.

ABOUT THE ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET
The Royal Winnipeg Ballet enriches the human experience by teaching, creating and performing outstanding dance. Versatility, technical excellence and a captivating style are the trademarks of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, qualities that have garnered both critical and audience acclaim. Founded in 1939 by Gweneth Lloyd and Betty Farrally, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet holds the double distinction of being Canada’s premiere ballet company and the longest continuously operating ballet company in North America. In 1953, the Company received its royal title, the first granted under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
