In 2015, Ballet BC celebrates 30 years with a triple bill program that includes three of the world’s most exciting choreographers and 14 finely trained ballet dancers.

Choreographer Celis has had a prolific career, creating a number of greatly acclaimed works for many major European dance companies. Pite’s Solo Echo is reflective, soft and very human: against a backdrop of whirling snowflakes, duets emerge and disappear, each leaving just a whisper.

Soto’s work was an audience favourite when it premiered in Ballet BC’s season in 2014: “A fast-driving but meticulously sculpted vision of wrapping and unwrapping forms. No one creates pas de deux in the endlessly innovative ways Soto does.”
