The Huntsville Ballet Company (HBC) is pleased to announce its long awaited return to the stage with “Bridge the Ballet” on February 12-14, 2021.
The performance will feature Affectionately Yours, a Valentine’s Day favorite, as well as the world premiere of Big Spring Dreams, an eclectic collection of vignettes of human emotion: love, inspiration, happiness, and hope, dedicated to the city of Huntsville and the community that supports the Huntsville Ballet.
“Big Spring Dreams” will feature guest choreography by Gina Guerrera and Desmond Nunn. Gina Guerrera serves on the faculty of Huntsville Ballet School and has been dancing and choreographing for over 20 years. Original sets have been designed by artist, Monica Yother whose work on behalf of the ballet has earned awards at local, regional, and national levels.
“We are especially excited to announce the return of special guest choreographer and dancer, Desmond Nunn. An Alabama native and former HBC principal dancer, Desmond is currently dance captain, ensemble swing and John Laurens / Philip Schuyler cover in The First National Tour of Hamilton: An American Musical,” Otto said.
Desmond will be choreographing for “Bridge the Ballet” and dancing in Affectionately Yours. According to Otto, “Desmond’s contributions to our organization have helped shape HBC into what it is today.”
