ABOUT BALLET ARIEL
Ballet Ariel was founded in 1998 by Artistic and Executive Director Ilena Norton. Now in its
18th season, Ballet Ariel has evolved into a laboratory for developing original classical ballets,
a collaborative environment where the beauty of classical ballet comes together with narrative
storytelling and a contemporary vision. This professional company is known for its graceful
and elegant, yet dynamic, choreography and staging.
Ballet Ariel also offers an exceptional pre-professional, classical ballet program and dance
classes, giving young dancers an opportunity to reach for their dreams while also being a part
of a creatively fertile dance environment.
Located in southeast Denver at 7808 E. Cherry Creek South Drive, Suite 209, the company
employs twelve professional dancers under rehearsal directors Oleg Dedogryuk and Ballet
Mistress, Patricia Renzetti. Ballet Ariel’s repertoire features original ballets such as Vincent Van
Gogh, The Birth of Rock and Roll and now, Appalachian Spring, along with classical works
including The Nutcracker and Cinderella.
