An emphasis on energetic, even ecstatic, rhythms unites Hershy Kay's bold orchestrations with Dan Deacon's synthesized sound. Stars and Stripes, Balanchine’s witty expression of the American spirit, kicks the program off with a flourish, followed by the miniature dance drama Slaughter on Tenth Avenue and Tarantella, a vivacious pas de deux. Justin Peck’s exhilarating sneaker ballet caps a program sure to set hearts racing.
