REBECCA BRENNER: SHAKESPEARE RUNS IN THE FAMILY
Welcome to the latest in our new series of videos! To help celebrate our next decade of dance, we’ve asked American Midwest Ballet dancers to share some of their favorite memories from the company’s first ten seasons.
Rebecca Brenner chose this memory:
“Hermia from A Midsummer Night’s Dream was my first time performing as a main character — and her character was so fun! I enjoyed dancing the choreography and pairing it with the drama of Hermia’s character.
It was also extra special for me because my mom played Hermia when she was in high school. I grew up hearing her stories and never dreamed I’d have the opportunity to perform such a role. I loved having her in the audience to watch, along with my dad, my husband and his parents.”
