TEMECULA — Temecula Presents opens its 2009-2010 dance season with the first international dance company to visit the Old Town Temecula Community Theater: BJM DANSE/Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal.
Performances will take place October 16 and 17.
Hailing from Canada, BJM DANSE is a contemporary jazz company that has been reinventing itself since 1972.
Founded by pioneering Quebec dance artists Geneviève Salbaing, Eva Von Gencsy and Eddy Toussaint, this company strives to keep the improvisational spirit of jazz alive by intertwining classic styles of dance with fresh, hip choreographers.
This continuously changing company has found new artistic inspiration in Louis Robitailla, who joined BJM DANSE in 1998.
Under Robitailla’s direction, the company provides original dance styles that are vibrant and fused with elements of the avant-garde.
Three decades of remarkable performances have allowed this company to flourish into an acclaimed international dance company.
Season tickets are available that include four different dance performances, or individual performance tickets can be purchased for $25/adults, $20/seniors, $15/students and youth.
