Save the date for the Third Annual Gala de Danza, the most exciting cultural event of the season in Los Cabos, Mexico, which promises “beautiful artistry in an extraordinary place”. Dancers from the world’s finest companies will take to the stage at the Pabellón Theatre in Cabo San Lucas Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June 14 for a two-night only special engagement.
Event partner and Premier Sponsor, Del Mar Development – the developer of Los Cabos’ premier residential resorts Villas Del Mar, Espiritu and Oasis Palmilla – is proud to once again be a part of the Gala in its third year.
This year’s event will feature guest artists representing Mariinsky Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Ballet West and international Latin Ballroom Champions, selected winners of Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) and headlining guest, Grammy Award and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legend, Sammy Hagar, performing live onstage.
Last year’s event featured such stars as American Ballet Theatre ballerina and guest judge on the hit Fox series, So You Think You Can Dance, Misty Copeland, who performed a piece by Emmy award-winning choreographer and Dancing with the Stars dancer Derek Hough.
Gala de Danza is co-produced by one of Del Mar Development’s Villas Del Mar homeowners, Christina Lyon, formerly of American Ballet Theatre and the English National Ballet, and a master class teacher with YAGP, scouting young talent to participate in the Gala. She produces Gala de Danza in collaboration with Lulu Téllez of Danza Téllez, Los Cabos’ premier ballet school located in San Jose del Cabo. Many Del Mar employees have children thriving in the school’s dance program, and the event gives them an opportunity to learn from some of the finest dancers and choreographers in the world.
Event organizers hope this opportunity and exposure will not only enrich the Los Cabos community, but also encourage a flourishing arts culture. Performers in past Gala de Danza events say the sold-out, packed events brought an energy and excitement to the theatre in the way they had never experienced.
The post-Gala celebration will once again take place at Del Mar Development’s private Club Ninety Six beach club where guests of the exclusive, invite-only event will have a chance to meet the acclaimed dancers, dine on delicious cuisine from Executive Chef Jorge Contreras and dance the night away to one of Cabo’s best bands.
