Ilse Kapteyn and Ruben Rascon, graduates of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow who now dance with the New Jersey Ballet, have been conducting master classes for the past two week at the East Street Dance Center, where Kapteyn, a Deerfield native, also studied. On Friday the two will join fellow professional dancers Ethan Schweitzer-Gaslin and Eugenia Zinovieva and master-class students for an informal performance beginning at 7:30 p.m. The recital will include excerpts from “La Bayadere,” a ballet by French choreographer Marius Petipa, and “The Flower Festival in Genzano,” a one-act work by Danish choreographer August Bournonville.
There is an $8 suggested donation. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Light refreshments and socializing follows. The East Street Dance Center is at 47 East St. in Hadley. 584-5535 or BLKAUFF@hotmail.com
