Bay Pointe Ballet artistic director Bruce Steivel travels to Tianjin, China, to set his production of Giselle on Tianjin Ballet, one of China's national ballet companies. Steivel's rendition of the romantic-era classic has previously been performed by Hong Kong Ballet, as well as Nevada Ballet Theatre of Las Vegas where it originally premiered in 1992.

Accompanying Steivel will be Bay Pointe Ballet principal dancer Edilsa Armendariz, who will be dancing the lead role of "Giselle." Partnered by one of the Tianjin Ballet's principal dancers, Armendariz will train and rehearse with the company for several weeks before the ballet's premier on
June 5th.
