BalletForte, Fort Bend County’s pre-professional ballet company, presents Swan
, a mesmerizing tale of romance and a battle between good and evil, April 7th and 8th at the Stafford Centre, located at 10505 Cash Road in Stafford.

One of the quintessential ballets of all time, Swan
is a technically and emotionally demanding four acts featuring Tchaikovsky’s heartbreakingly beautiful score. Come see the area’s best dancers tackle it in two shows: 7 pm on Saturday, April 7th and 2 pm on Sunday, April 8th.

Directed by Michael Banigan and Dianne Jarrell, BalletForte provides a training ground and professional quality performance opportunities for serious dancers from the Houston area. BalletForte Company members audition for and are accepted into summer programs offered by professional ballet companies nationwide.

BalletForte, which includes more than 40 area dancers, has been performing The
every December since 1996. As a member of Regional Dance America, the group will be attending the Regional Dance America-Southwest festival near Dallas in March and then return to present Swan
to their local fans in April.
