(Hawaii News Now) - Hawai‘i has produced its fair share of professional ballerinas over the years, but only one, Romi Beppu, has reached principal ballerina status. Since 2012, she has been sharing her experience and training with students at Honolulu Classical Ballet (HCB), which she founded when she retired in 2011 as principal ballerina with acclaimed Salt Lake City company, Ballet West.
On Oct. 5, the HCB holds its first theater performances "At the Ballet" at the Honolulu Museum of Art Doris Duke Theatre. The matinee and evening shows give students the opportunity to perform in a mixed bill that includes classical variations from beloved ballets such as Swan Lake, neoclassical pieces and contemporary works.
