SHE HOLDS OUT HER  HAND

 "She Holds Out Her Hand," a romantic pas de deux piece dedicated to the timeless practice of yearning. Portrayed through visual opposites -light and dark, sound and silence - a clean background let the dancers' shadows create a second world of its own, begging the question: aren't we all longing for permanence in a world where everything is fleeting? Rich choreography heavily influenced by Balanchine created exciting syncopation with an energetic series of repeated grand jetés and arabesque fouettés.
