American dancer Daniel Ulbricht returns to Santa Fe for a third year with his own dance company, Stars of American Ballet, in two different programs featuring classic and modern ballet, including excerpts from Petipa’s Giselle and Balanchine’s Jewels, and dances to music by Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin.  Both nights showcase Jerome Robbins’ Fancy Free, familiar to many from the screen adaptation as On the Town with Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra.


Besides his work as principal dancer for New York City Ballet, Mr. Ulbricht is also Artistic Advisor to Manhattan Youth Ballet, Associate Artistic Director of the New York State Summer School for the Arts in Saratoga Springs, and frequently conducts workshops and master classes throughout the country.  At 10:30 am on Saturday, August 24, Mr. Ulbricht will offer a master class for intermediate to advanced dance students at National Dance Institute New Mexico (NDI New Mexico) in Santa Fe.  The class is free, but pre-registration is required.  Interested dancers should call Allegra at NDI to register:  505.983.7646, ext. 125.  Mr. Ulbricht will also give a pre-performance talk at 6:30 pm before Saturday’s performance.
