In this new production of Coppelia, Artistic Director Laveen Naidu shortens the three act ballet into a comfortable one act version. This ballet shares the story of the eccentric Doctor Coppelius, who creates a doll (Coppelia) for companionship. The doll appears so lifelike that she captures the attention of Franz, a young village youth, who is engaged to be married to Swanhilda! Upset that her true love is infatuated with another, Swanhilda realizes Coppelia for the doll she is and dons Coppelia's clothing to trick Franz. Confusion, mayhem and comedy ensue! It's a delightful classic for all ages to enjoy.
DAPHNIS & CHLOE
Choreographed by BalletNova's Associate Artistic Director Constance Walsh, this original work shares the story of Daphnis and Chloe, the only known work of Greek novelist and romancer Longus. Performed to the 2nd Suite of Daphnis and Chloe by Ravel, Walsh captures the dreamy tale of the romantic pair brought together by nymphs and the Syrinx.
Inspired by the extraordinary artist Mary Ann Mears's dynamic sculpture 'Reston Rondo' which is installed at Hyatt Park, the gateway to the Reston Town Center. Gin Dance Company Artistic Director Shu-Chen created 'Hello! Goodbye!' takes a humorous, cheerful, and whimsical look at the role the 'Reston Rondo.'

The Cottonwood Gulch Prairie Trek began in 1926 when our founder, Hillis Howie, learned of plans to pave Route 66. He wanted to make sure that his students learned about the American West and Native cultures before it was too late. This 5 week, all male Trek will inspire and challenge young men through wilderness backpacking, local service projects, rock climbing, mountaineering, canyoneering, and exploration of cultural and scientific sites around the Four Corners. Prairie Trekkers spend a large part of their Trek traveling from site to site, bound only by the road and their destination. The remaining time will be spend at our Base Camp property located in the Zuni Mountains. Here Trekkers will work on their personal legacy projects that may include forest restoration projects, organic farming projects, or special carpentry additions to Base Camp. Prairie Trekkers have the highest rate of return and represent a 90 year legacy here at The Gulch.
Jun. 27th - Jul. 31st
Mountain Desert Trek is an experience unlike any other. Are you ready to spend 6 weeks backpacking through desert canyons, up mountain peaks, across rivers, and into the wilderness? Do you enjoy ghost towns, Native American cultures, local artists and musicians, service learning, and organic farming? The Cottonwood Gulch Mountain Desert Trek is our longest and most intensive Trek designed for young men and women ages 16-18. This Trek will spend much of their 44 days exploring sites like a Colorado 14er, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, The Great Sand Dunes, and many other world class destinations. MDT Trekkers will develop leadership skills through personal projects, planning expeditions, demonstrating expedition mentality, and communal living. Most importantly, Trekkers will learn self-reliance, compassion for their peers, and how to overcome personal challenges.
Jun. 27th - Jul. 31st
The Turquoise Trail (a.k.a. The TT) was started in 1934, and it's been a pride of the Gulch ever since. Back then, The Gulch was a pioneer in getting young women outdoors. Today, the Turquoise Trail still inspires women to challenge express themselves as young women. This 5 week long all-female Trek will enamor trekkers and take them through wilderness backpacking trips, local service projects, rock climbing and mountaineering, and explorations of cultural and scientific sites throughout the Southwest. This Trek will spend the majority of their time out on the open road traveling the four corners. However, we settle down for 10 days at our Base Camp to work of legacy projects. In the past, these projects have included adobe kiln and horno restoration, pottery and silver smithing in our Native Arts Workshop, organic farming, forest restoration, and Base Camp beatification projects. Like our original trip, the Prairie Trek, nearly every member of this group returns for a second summer; a testament to the power of these experiences.
