Former Langley resident Brad Brannen will take to the stage at Surrey Arts Centre on Thursday, Nov. 1 as Ballet B.C. presents its 2007 GVRD Series, featuring Rodeo and Allegro Brillante.

Audiences will be treated to a rare glimpse behind the scenes before the performance begins — the curtain will be open and they will be able to view the dancers as they warm up on stage.

The evening showcases the technical precision of George Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante and Agnes de Mille’s energetic, comedic ballet Rodeo, and will close with an engaging ‘Dancer Dialogue.’

Here, audiences will be introduced to company dancers and invited to participate in a question-and-answer session with the company and artistic director, John Alleyne.

Ballet B.C.’s Surrey performance begins at 8 p.m. on the Surrey Centre mainstage, 13750 88 Ave.

For tickets call 604-501-5566.
