Highlands Ballet Company is honored to be selected as the 2017 signature artists of Virginia Highlands Festival in historic Abingdon, VA. Virginia Living Magazine has called the Highlands Festival "The best art event in Virginia" and we are delighted to be returning to this highly anticipated celebration of arts and artists.
Join us on August 4th at the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts as we present Kick Up You Heels. The concert will feature a selection of dance styles performed by Abingdon-based dance companies: Highlands Ballet Company, Grace Studio of Motion and Dance, The Appalachian Center for Ballet, and Xtreme Dance Co.
HBC will open the program with Gershwin by George. This original work is full of romantic, fresh, and sassy choreography highlighted by Gershwin’s captivating tunes featuring “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and “Summertime.” Additional HBC original pieces include Echoes, a visionary journey of otherworldly movement set to the music of Pink Floyd; Bolero; and a live presentation of the 2017 VA Highlands Festival signature art music video, Can't Stop the Feeling.
