Civic Ballet prepares for Assemblé 2013

By Special to the American Press

The Lake Charles Civic Ballet is proud

to present Assemblé 2013. The name Assemblé [a•sahn•BLAY] is French for

“to come together”

and a ballet term that denotes a particular jump ending with both

the legs and feet coming together.

The performance features the work of several artists. Among the pieces featured is the comedic ballet “Graduation Ball,” set

to the music of Strauss. Also presented is “The Fable,” an LCCB original, choreographed to music specifically composed for

this ballet by the late Keith Gates.

Performance dates are 7 p.m. Saturday, March 16, and 3 p.m. Sunday, March 17, at the Rosa Hart Theatre in the Lake Charles

Civic Center.
