"Pointe of Departure" ...a NYC Season of Contemporary Ballet
Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance and Vicky Virgin
Contemporary ballet choreographers Vicky Virgin and Cherylyn Lavagnino will share a New York City Season entitled Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pointe of DepartureÃ¢â‚¬Â at Baryshnikov Arts Center on June 27th and 28th . Vicky Virgin will present her 2007 ballet titled Salt Lake, a New Ballet in 3 Acts and Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance will present three ballets, two of which will be world premieres. As a shared NYC Season Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pointe of DepartureÃ¢â‚¬Â will focus on how Virgin and Lavagnino, two stylistically different choreographers, take on the genre of contemporary ballet. LavagninoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s style is lyrical and fluid while VirginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s is theatrical and experimental. In a field dominated by male choreographers, these women will present two important feminine interpretations of the art of contemporary ballet.
