The Beatles rapidly evolved from producing innocent teenage love lyrics to posing profound questions about reality. They revolutionized popular songs intellectually as well as musically. Their songs and music influenced the world from the sixties to today's life. The longing for more authentic relationships, true love, spiritual peace and political solutions hope, the eager yet critical embrace of consumer culture, the chemically assisted lift-off into inner space. The students and faculty of the Latin Ballet will dance to inspire "peace and harmony in our world," the philosophic music of the Beatles in the styles of Contemporary Dance, Classical Ballet, Flamenco, Middle Eastern Dance, Dance Theatre, African Caribbean, Salsa, and more.
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
you were only waiting for this moment to arise
black bird singing in the dead of night
take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life you were only waiting for this moment to be free
black bird fly black bird fly
into the light of the dark black night
blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these broken wings and learn to fly
all your life
Hold My Hand
Imagine there's no countries
it isn't hard to do
nothing to kill or die for
and no religion to
imagine all the people
living life in peace
you may say that i'm a dreamer
but i'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
and the world will live as one
"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons.
It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't
as real as the here and now?"
"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one." - John Lennon

Can’t Buy Me Love

"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." - John Lennon
Let It Be
you say you want a revolution
well you know we all want to change the world
but when you talk about destruction
don't you know that you can count me out
don't you know its gonna be alright
you say you got a real solution
well you know we'd love to seethe plan
you ask me for a contribution
well you know we're doing what we can

“Life is very short and there's no time, for fussing and fighting my friend. I have always thought that it's a crime, so I will ask you once again: try to see it my way, only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong. While you see it your way, there's a chance that we might fall apart before too long. We can work it out.”
"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."
"War is over ... If you want it."
"We all shine on...like the moon and the stars and the sun...we all shine on...come on and on and on..."
- John Lennon
