LCCB PROFILES — Adelaide Saucier from Lake Charles Civic Ballet on Vimeo.

In the studio with Adelaide Saucier and Elizabeth Gates.

Elizabeth ‘Lizy’ Gates, a former student of Lady Leah Lafargue School of the Dance the official school of LCCB, is not a stranger to our studios—she’s part of our history. Lake Charles Civic Ballet has collaborated with artists and arts organizations since its beginning. Talented artists such as Lizy are always welcomed and appreciated. This is not the first time Lizy has worked with LCCB dancers as a choreographer. For the 2008 Spring Performance, Lizy created Nocturne in memory of her father, Keith Gates.

LCCB’s 2012 Spring Performance will again feature a work by Elizabeth Gates entitled Psalm of Spring. In this second interview in her series, Karen Wink features LCCB Principal Adelaide Saucier during one of Lizy’s rehearsals for Psalm of Spring.
