Provided the TribuneDancer Rachel Uhland, pictured, will perform in "Cakewalk," a classical ballet with a southern flare, during the fourth annual "A Dance Extravaganza" by the Sierra Ballet Theatre Co. The shows will be held at 6 p.m. Feb. 6 and Feb. 27 at the MontBleu Theater in Stateline.

The Sierra Ballet Theatre Co. presents their fourth annual “A Dance Extravaganza” in two performances, 6 p.m. Feb. 6 and Feb. 27, at the MontBleu Theater in Stateline.

The performance opens with three ballets: The contemporary “Rachmaninoff,” traditional “Sogno Dei Contadini,” and flamenco-inspired “Malaguena.” Also on the program are contemporary, lyrical and Bollywood-style jazz dances and the “Cakewalk” ballet.

The 22-member Sierra Ballet Theatre Co. is choreographed by the mother-daughter team of Irma O’Fallon as ballet mistress, and Kelly O’Fallon, artistic director. “A Dance Extravaganza” also features the choreography of previous soloists for the Sierra Ballet Theatre Co.

“We have all collaborated closely on the creation of this year’s performance,” said O’Fallon. “This talented group of dancers has worked extremely hard over the past year to bring this show to the stage.”

The ballet company is an outlet for serious dancers who want more performing opportunities throughout the dance season and who want to train at a professional level.

“Our philosophy has always been that dance is an art not a competition,” said O’Fallon. “These dancers are dancing for the pure joy of self expression and love for their craft.”
