San Francisco-based Post:Ballet and the Berkeley Ballet Theater teamed up to perform “Waltz of the Snowflakes” in an empty parking lot at the historic Alameda Naval Air Station in Alameda, California. It was captured by cinematographer Ben Tarquin. The San Francisco skyline across the bay sets the California winter stage.
With choreography by Robert Dekkers, the ballet dance artists performed the classic piece from Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker in white face masks and white sneakers. They include Cora Cliburn, Mai Corkins, Landes Dixon, Emily Hansel, Cameron Heanue, Caitlin Hicks, Elizabeth Inami, Monique Jonath, Jenna Marie, Nina Owen, and Frances Pine-Rinella.
