Columbia Ballet Collaborative
Columbia Ballet Collaborative (CBC) is pleased to present a program of six new and dynamic works for its upcoming fall performances. Founded in 2007 by five professional ballet dancers enrolled at Columbia University, CBC is comprised of students from all of the University’s undergraduate colleges and affiliates.
For the Fall 2014 season, Columbia Ballet Collaborative welcomes Donald Borror, former dancer with Ballet Hispanico and a Master’s student in Arts Administration at Columbia University’s Teachers College; Nancy Cantine, a graduate of UNCSA’s high school ballet program and a former dancer with DC Contemporary Dance Theater/ Teatro Danza de El Salvador and Dances Patrelle; Alison Cook Beatty, artistic director of Alison Cook Beatty Dance Company; Andrew Harper, also a graduate of UNSCA’s high school ballet program and recipient of the 2013-2014 Kenan Fellowship at Lincoln Center Education; Richard Isaac, former dancer with several companies including Kansas City Ballet and Tulsa Ballet, and a student at Columbia University’s School of General Studies; and Valentina Strokopytova, a student at Barnard College.
CBC was featured in the October/November 2013 issue of Pointe, the November 2013 issue of Dance Informa and the March 2013 issue of Dance Magazine. In the past, it has also been featured in The New York Times and TimeOut NY as well as on VanityFair.com. CBC is committed to enriching the arts in the Columbia community and providing a platform for the collaboration between professionals in the New York dance community and Columbia University students. CBC is managed and directed by students and its members have danced professionally with companies such as Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Ballet West, Kansas City Ballet, New York City Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Orlando Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, and Tulsa Ballet. The New York Times writes, "New choreographic voices are rare in ballet, and the collaborative’s contribution in this respect has been vast already."
CBC is a recognized student group at Columbia University and jointly advised by the Office of Student Engagement and Barnard College’s Department of Dance. We thank the Department of Dance for its generous support and continued provision of rehearsal and performance time and space.
