Why Watch American Ballet Stars
Daniel Ulbricht’s brainchild ‘American Ballet Stars’ has come a long way since its inception. Ulbricht himself is a prominent figure in the United States as the principal dancer with the New York City Ballet. He started American Ballet Stars with accomplished Executive Director Andrew Robertson with the goal of educating and uplifting people with ballet. The company has been successful so far in spreading awareness about ballet and sponsoring rigorous dance training programs across America.
The performance in Dubai is amongst American Ballet Stars’ most ambitious stage projects. It includes incredible ballets composed by legends in the industry such as George Balanchine and Christopher Wheeldon besides Daniel Ulbricht himself.
The show kicks off with George Balanchine's neoclassical ballet ‘Apollo’. Enjoy this story of the Greek God of Music presented in an irresistible fashion by the talented cast. Daniel Ulbricht’s performance of ‘Sing Sing Sing’ with his stage and life partner Danielle Diniz is sure to be electrifying to witness. Marius Petipa’s version of White Swan Pas de Deux set to Tchaikovsky’s famous 1895 score has never failed to entertain audiences since the first performance in 1917. There are few shows that are as diverse and intensely entertaining as this presentation by the American Ballet Stars.
