15th Season Dance Series

The Old Town Temecula Community Theater invites audiences to experience Temecula Presents’ 2019-2020 Dance Series. 

Temecula Theater’s 15th Dance Season launches on Saturday, February 22, 2020, at 8:00 pm with State Street Ballet.  Founded in 1994 by former American Ballet Theatre dancer Rodney Gustafson, the company combines the discipline and timeless elegance of classical ballet technique with updated, cutting-edge choreography, producing original works that satisfy today’s diverse audiences. State Street Ballet presents The Jungle Book Ballet intertwining the four natural elements in this dazzling adaptation of Rudy Kipling’s classic collection of stories. See your favorite characters come to life in this original production!

Temecula’s 2019-2020 Dance Series continues on Saturday, April 1, 2020, at 8:00 pm with the Jon Lehrer Dance. The New York-based dance company has received critical acclaim nationally and internationally. The company’s expressive style is based on three main elements of movement: Circularity, Three-Dimensionality, and Momentum, which combine to create a form best described as “Organically Athletic.” Striking the elusive balance between art and entertainment, Jon Lehrer Dance showcases unique choreography and fun, which can be enjoyed by dance experts and novices alike.

The Dance Season concludes with the return of Backhausdance, performing on Saturday, May 30, 2020, at 8:00 pm. Formed in 2003 by Jennifer Backhaus, this dance company is known for its lush movement vocabulary and ensemble aesthetic.

 Temecula Presents’ 15th Dance Season also offers a FREE, ninety-minute, Master Dance Class during each residency, beginning at 1:00 pm the day of the performance. This opportunity is for the community to study with world-class professional dancers. Space is limited, so please contact the Ticket Office to register at 866.653.8696.
