Since 1987, SA Met Ballet has presented a mixed-repertoire concert of contemporary and classical dance with company dancers, local students and guest artists.
Due to unprecedented circumstances, San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet’s Spring 2020 performance – Dance Kaleidoscope, could not be performed on stage in the traditional sense.
With some improvisation and telecommunication, we kept dancing.
In June, we brought you Dance Kaleidoscope Part One – The Shelter-in-Place Choreography Project – A Remote Ensemble Performance.
And now, we bring you Dance Kaleidoscope, Part Two: a behind the scenes look at four pieces intended for Spring 2020.
In this 40-minute documentary, you will hear choreographer testimonials and see rehearsal notes, photos and videos, followed by the available footage of each piece as it was performed in-studio for a Regional Dance America Adjudicator in February 2020.
You will also see updates on what we are up to today as we embark on Season 37 in this new post-COVID reality for performing arts organizations.
Join us on November 15th for Dance Kaleidoscope 2020 Part 2 – the Works-In-Progress Documentary.

SAMB Executive & Associate Artistic Director, Karin Heiden, called upon 60 dancers - alumni and current members - to send in videos of themselves dancing during the quarantine. Dancers were given simple instructions - a beginning and ending pose and the freedom to create movement in between. Former company member, Alice Lam, edited the videos together and created a soundtrack that beautifully connected the dancers from across the world - from Los Angeles to Berlin and New York to San Antonio.
Dance is innate and it will never leave you - watch these amazing dancers that span generations - but who all have one thing in common - they have danced under the direction of founder, Susan B. Connally. Celebrate this collaboration of dance by buying a copy of the Shelter-In-Place Choreography Project today!
