Ballet Kelowna launches its 16th season of captivating and innovative dance with Autumn, a dynamic mixed program presented at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

Join the full company of dancers for a multi-faceted celebration of the splendour of the fall season, featuring two premieres of two highly-anticipated works from lauded Canadian choreographers – Schubert from internationally renowned choreographer John Alleyne and In Between by rising star Alysa Pires, in addition to the return of Pires’ vivacious audience favourite MAMBO, previously commissioned by Ballet Kelowna in 2017, and most recently closing Toronto’s premier international dance festival, Fall For Dance North (FFDN), to thunderous applause and standing ovations, according to a Ballet Kelowna news release.
