Holiday ballet selections presented for TWOQC

Diane Quinn

Ballet Continental Dance Company will perform for The Women of Quail Creek at their November 14 program. Presenting selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet, the troupe will present one of the most traditional artistic offerings of the holiday season.

Ballet Continental was first started in 1985 to help foster and develop a performing group for aspiring dancers. Ranging in age from 12 through adult, the members of the company come from throughout southern Arizona including Tucson, Sahuarita, Green Valley, Amado and Tubac. Artists audition for each performing season so that they may become aware of the professional selection process.

Through its professional process of challenging dancers and performers, Ballet Continental has been recognized statewide. Lisa Baker DiGiacomo serves as Artistic Director and is in charge of rehearsing, casting and producing all performances. Additional information about Ballet Continental is available at

TWOQC’s program on November 14 begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom. All women residents and renters within Quail Creek are welcome to attend. For further information about TWOQC, consult the organization’s website,
