The 2011-2012 season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center continues with Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève performing the Northern American premieres of "Les Sylphides" and "Spectre de la Rose" choreographed by acclaimed New York City Ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, widely known for his work in last year's award-winning film BLACK SWAN

Since its inception, this company has explored the stylistic diversity of dance in the twentieth century, which led to work with renowned artists such as George Balanchine (who served as artistic advisor from 1970 to 1978), Mikhail Baryshnikov, Rudolf Nureyev, Jiri Kylian, Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe and Lucinda Childs.  Now headed by Philippe Cohen, the Grand Theatre Ballet has 22 dancers of various nationalities.  Classically trained, they are all able to perform neo-classical and contemporary dances.
