Ballet Tennessee, under the direction of Anna Baker-VanCura, celebrates the spring season with its annual Repertory Performance on Friday and Spring Festival of Dance Saturday at UTC Fine Arts Center, Roland Hayes Concert Hall. 

Both performances will feature the full length ballet "Dream Awake." "Dream Awake," originally choreographed on the company by Barry VanCura in 2003, is set to music by Enya and Astarius. It chronicles "a child's journey into the dream state." Ballet Tennessee alumnus LaJeromeny Brown returns to perform the lead in "Dream Awake." 

Mr. Brown is a full merit scholarship student at the School of American Ballet and Professional Children's School in New York. He has had the honor of studying the Balanchine technique under multiple New York City Ballet Alumni including Arch Higgins, Andrei Kramarevsky, Kay Mazzo, Andrew Scordato, and Jonathan Stafford. 

With permission from the Jerome Robbins Trust and School of American Ballet, Mr. Brown will perform "2 & 3 Part Inventions" both performances. 

The Ballet Tennessee Repertory Performance features the versatility of the Ballet Tennessee Company in a variety of classical and contemporary works, choreographed by Catherine Gaudreau, Brittany Johnson-Mills, Hannah Locke, and Emma Pannkuk. 

The Ballet Tennessee Spring Festival of Dance will showcase students from the VanCura Ballet Conservatory, the official school of Ballet Tennessee, and the Ballet Tennessee Company.
