About the Company
Since its debut in 1974 at the Newman Theater of the New York Shakespeare Festival, The Feld Ballet has earned the reputation as America's newest major classical ballet company. In addition to its New York seasons, the Ballet has toured extensively throughout the United States, and was the official U.S. Bicentennial representative in a nine-week tour of Mexico and Central and South America. Last year the Ballet made its Canadian debut at Ottawa's National Arts Centre and its European debut at the Theatre des Champs Elysees in Paris, followed by a five-city tour of northern Italy. Also in 1979 the Ballet was featured in the WNETPublic Television series, "Dance in America."
The Feld Studios are located in 20,000 square feet of exceptional loft space in Lower Manhattan. Under the same roof is The New Ballet School, associate school of The Feld Ballet, opened in 1978 as a tuition-free, professional ballet training program for gifted and talented children in the New York City public schools. The School now has 175 students', nine of these children made their performing debut in Feld's "Papillon" in August 1979, and two of the students just made their debut in his "Scenes for the Theater" in August 1980.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Eliot Feld began performing at age twelve. At sixteen he joined the Broadway cast of "West Side Story" and appeared as Baby-John in the movie version. He has danced with the companies of Pearl Lang, Sophie Maslow, Mary Anthony, and Donald MacKayle, and with the American Ballet Theatre and American Ballet Company. He has created ballets for the American Ballet Theatre, American Ballet Company, Royal Danish Ballet. Joffrey Ballet, National Ballet of Canada, Royal Swedish Ballet, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and The Feld Ballet, totaling 33 since 1967. Thirteen of these have been premiered by his own company.
The Feld Ballet is in Ann Arbor for the third time, bringing to a total of seventeen the rumber of creations performed here by this gifted choreographer and his company. The three performances this week comprise a dance residency under the Dance Touring Program, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Michigan Council for the Arts.
