“Stars of American Ballet” performance will feature New York City Ballet principal dancer Daniel Ulbricht, April 2, 2017

“Stars of American Ballet,” an evening of contemporary and classical ballet led by New York City Ballet principal dancer Daniel Ulbricht, will be held in the Frances Daly Fergusson Dance Theater in Kenyon Hall on Sunday, April 2, 7:00pm. This performance is free and open to the public.

The performance at Vassar will feature Ulbricht and five dancers performing a repertoire of pieces from classical ballets such as Swan Lake as well as more contemporary dances to the music of Benny Goodman and an excerpt from George Balanchine’s ballet Who Cares, which features the songs of George Gershwin.

Ulbricht has been a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet since 2007. He has performed internationally as a guest artist and is the founder and director of “Stars of American Ballet,” which brings ballet performances to cities that rarely host such events. During his career, Ulbricht has performed in classic ballets such as The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty but has also originated roles in works by Peter Martins, Jerome Robbins and others.
