Houston Ballet's principal dancer Amy Fote is hanging up her toeshoes, and to mark the occasion, the company is dedicating their ninth annual Jubilee of Dance: A Tribute to Amy Fote in her honor. Fote joined the Houston Ballet in 2005. It took her less than a year to be named a principal dancer. This one-night-only performance, composed of short pieces showcasing present and future stars of Houston Ballet, will be both celebratory and bittersweet. Jubilee will feature Fote in a pas de deux from Manon with principal Connor Walsh, in excerpts from Stanton Welch's Marie and in Act III of The Merry Widow. The program will also include excerpts from George Balanchine's Theme and Variations; excerpts from Welch's La Bayadère, Clear and Indigo; and Twyla Tharp's The Brahms/Haydn Variations.
