Ronn Guidi and the Original Oakland Ballet
Join us at the Main Library on Sunday, August 10 for a very special event. Ronn Guidi, founding Artisitic Director of the Oakland Ballet Company will be with us to talk about his career as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. He will also talk about his newly published oral history, Ronn Guidi. Sergei Diaghilev, and the Original Oakland Ballet.
In a series of interviews with dancer and choreographer Jeff Friedman Mr. Guidi talked about his work with the original Oakland Ballet, the influences on his life in dance, and his revival of the historic works of Diaghilev that were revolutionary in their time and which would have been lost to the dance world without his vision.
