The Mid-Columbia Ballet's spring show will be an eclectic mix of classical and new pieces of ballet.
The performance, Sleeping Beauty Suite and More, is at 7 p.m. March 19 in the auditorium at Richland High School.
The new pieces being performed are a choreographed collaboration between Debra Rogo, the ballet's artistic director, and Kiyon Gaines, a principal dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle.
"Act I is going to be excerpts from Sleeping Beauty," said Joel Rogo, a co-director of the Mid-Columbia Ballet. "Act II and Act III will be performances by our guest (dancers) Eagle Performing Ensemble and from our own dancers."
Eagle Performing Ensemble, a pre-professional company from Idaho, is set to dance three pieces of its own company's work titled, Spring Concerto, Nexus and Degas, Joel Rogo said.
"The Mid-Columbia Ballet dancers will perform Kiyon Gaines' new ballet Delicate Deviations, and a new ballet by Tri-City student choreographer Kayla MacFarlan called 2nd Detail: Part 3," he said.
"We'll close the evening with the Mid-Columbia Ballet's signature piece Aranda, choreographed by Debra."
Tickets to the show are $16 for adults, $12 for students and seniors and $8 for children 11 and younger. Tickets are available at www.midcolumbiaballet.org or at the Dance Boutique on Aaron Drive in Richland. Tickets also can be reserved by phone at 946-5417.
