Ballet Sun Valley may have had to cancel its two-day festival in Sun Valley because of the pandemic.

But it will offer Sun Valley-area residents a specially curated night of ballet designed especially for the Sun Valley community via livestreaming.

The 90-minute program, will be livestreamed into homes and to the jumbo screen on the Sun Valley Pavilion lawn at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23.

People can livestream the performance by accessing https://balletsunvalley.org and clicking on “2020 Event.” Or, they can reserve a spot on the lawn by reserving spaces that accommodate two, four or up to eight guests. Concessions, including a full bar, will be available. Food and drink from outside will be permitted, as well.

There will be an opportunity for everyone to win one of three Viking European river cruises while registering. Viking the lead sponsor of the performance has provided Ballet Sun Valley with three cruise certificates. Winners will be announced during the performance.

The program will feature a collage of works danced by Pacific Northwest Ballet dancers on the McCaw Hall stage in Seattle after conditions allowed them to return to the stage. The selections will be filmed over the next few weeks.

In addition to the performance, Ballet Sun Valley will offer two days of free virtual dance instruction by Peter Boal, the artistic director of the Pacific Northwest Ballet. It inclues a special choreography workshop led by Eva Stone.

Faculty from the Boston Ballet School will lead the Adaptive Dance Teacher Training program for adaptive dance teachers.

Artistic Director Peter Boal said the program will feature a hybrid of newly recorded works and archival favorites to showcase the breadth of Pacific Northwest Ballet’s repertoire.

“We believe that art and dance can uplift and inspire, especially in challenging times,” he said.
