Boca Raton –  PNC Arts Alive presents Boca Ballet Theatre’s Community Dance Concert on Sunday, May 28, 2017 at 7:30pm at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre. The PNC Foundation has always believed that engagement in the arts enriches lives and builds stronger more vibrant communities.  PNC Arts Alive recently announced that they will award $555,000 over three years to arts organizations in Broward, Duval and Palm Beach counties. We are honored to be one of the first recipients.

This FREE event will feature excerpts from Enchanted Garden, a lovely vignette to showcase the Corps de Ballet which is the heart and soul of classical ballets. Enchanted Garden stands alone as a large beautiful piece that we know you will love. Also featured will be Peter and the Wolf, from the famous Russian children’s tale is set to Prokofiev’s iconic music for children. Join us to see Peter and his animal friends triumph over danger in his own backyard. In addition Just Swingin’, choreographed by Co-Artistic Director Dan Guin. Originally underwritten by Seton and Blake Smith and performed by Boca Ballet Theatre in 1995. Just Swingin’ is one of the most beloved pieces created as a tribute to the Andrews Sisters who performed at the USO Shows during WWII. There will be a special appearance by the students of Boca Ballet Theatre’s outreach programs; First Step and BBT4PD.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW | FORMER STUDENT NICOLE WINTER PERFORMING WITH L’ECOLE NATIONALE DE CIRQUE IN MONTREAL

Boca Raton – Nicole Winter began performing for and pleasing crowds before she began kindergarten. She began training in ballet at age 4, and continued her dance training at Boca Ballet Theatre and Bak Middle School of the Arts and Dreyfoos High School of the Performing Arts. At the age of 14, she discovered her true talent and calling: circus arts. Dance allowed her to perform high level contortion acts with the grace of a ballerina. At 16 years old, she was accepted into the prestigious Cirque du Soleil affiliate L’Ecole Nationale de Cirque in Montreal. She trained there for 2 years, majoring in contortion. In 2015, she signed with Cirque Eloize and is currently touring with their show iD as a contortionist and aerialist. When she is not on tour, she resides in Miami, Florida. She is thrilled to be performing full time all over the continental United States and abroad.
