The culminating performance in TPB’s most intense program for the most advanced dancers.  Trained for two scant weeks with all the expectations of a professional ballet company, 25 young dancers, plus guest artists Lauren Lane and Michael McGonegal from St. Louis Ballet and Sada Popick from Ballet Idaho, dance renowned choreographer John Clifford’s Masters 2012-created choreography set to Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” as well as his Scherzo à la Russe, set to Stravinsky, and one more, to-be-announced piece tailored to the skills and experience of the Masters 2012 cohort.  Many Masters 2012 dancers are TPB Company members or apprentices; most have been dancing all summer at Intensives with programs ranging from TPB to Miami City Ballet, School of American Ballet (New York City Ballet’s school) to San Francisco Ballet. Ticketing inquiries (503) 452-8448.
