Drawing visitors from all over the U.S. and the world are Omaha’s many beautiful and wonderful attractions, including its zoo, botanical gardens, museums, and sports and event arenas. At the pinnacle of these attractions is Omaha’s most valued treasure–American Midwest Ballet, which offers residents and visitors the epitome of the beauty and graceful expression of culture that comes from the artistry that only dance can provide.” — Nutcracker attendee

“This is an amazing company. Their strength is multifaceted — wonderful programs, brilliant choreography (especially the dances created by director Erika Overturff), refreshing choices, gorgeous costumes, and an obvious love for dance that sweeps the audience into a wonderfully vibrant experience.” — Momentum attendee

“In a world where it seems like only anger and sadness are shared broadly, American Midwest Ballet provides a few hours of art, light, and joy to lift our spirits and remind us of the true beauty that still exists in abundance in our world. Bravo!” – Momentum attendee

“As performed by the entire troupe, the dance [In the Style of Bob Fosse] was special indeed. It was set to a reworking of numbers from Chicago, a musical that was choreographed by Fosse. The dancers looked like they were having a blast. Their moves were at times dramatic, at times understated and always interesting, especially when the entire troupe came together to form stylized silhouettes. — Omaha World-Herald, Momentum

“The star of the night was at the end of the first act: Appalachian Song, choreographed by the company’s artistic director, Erika Overturff…The piece required a wide range of emotions; the performers were as much actors as dancers. They made it look effortless. I found myself marveling at the way they conveyed so many feelings with only movement, no words required.” — Omaha World-Herald, Momentum
