Here’s what you’ll see…

  • Go West! – Erika Overturff’s exhilarating ballet is inspired by the spirit and stories of the American West; as Erika says, “You can expect cowboys, tumbleweeds, and yodels galore!”
  • Fragile Creatures – This new work by Erin Alarcón hauntingly explores the mysterious world of memory using a mix of evocative movement and advanced-technology projection art.
  • Love Games – Choreographer Monique Haley, an alumna of Chicago’s renowned River North Dance Company, says this sultry work depicts “the flirty tug-of-war we play when we are falling for someone.”
  • Confetti – This sparkling classical jewel by Joffrey Ballet co-founder Gerald Arpino [1923-2008] is filled with shimmering skirts, flashing tambourines, and seemingly effortless yet technically dazzling dancing.
