Coming to you in Season 13:

Guest choreographers Frank Chaves and Ray Mercer, creators of last season’s “If Only…” and “Ghost Light”, will bring fresh, exciting works to Momentum 13.


  • October 15 & 16 – Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center, Council Bluffs

For Season 13, Momentum will feature two guest choreographers whose works have wowed audiences around the world.

Ray Mercer, currently dancing on Broadway in The Lion King, got the idea for his new work when he glanced down into the orchestra one day.

“Once they join together, they make this beautiful sound,” he said. “I want to equate that to a community – how if a community came together, what beautiful things it could produce.”

When Frank Chaves created Eva for Chicago’s River North Dance Company in 2013, the Chicago Sun-Times said it ”has all the marks of an instant classic.”

Eva is set to songs by vocalist Eva Cassidy, who tragically died of cancer in 1996 at the age of 33. A dedicated band of fans kept her music alive, and eventually her posthumous albums became best-sellers.

“I had never really heard of Eva Cassidy,” he said. ”But River North was a big touring company, and Philadelphia was almost a yearly stop. The presenter there was a huge Eva Cassidy fan. He introduced me to her music, and I fell in love.

Momentum 13 also will feature an audience favorite by artistic director Erika Overturff.

This smash-hit production is back by popular demand!  Choreographer Erin Alarcón takes us dancing down the Yellow Brick Road in this imaginative full-length story ballet.

A lifelong fan of both the classic film and the groundbreaking fantasy novel, Alarcón uses the magic of dance to create an unforgettable experience through her interpretation of the beloved Oz story and its  iconic characters: Dorothy, the storm-tossed but unflappable heroine; her companions the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion; the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch; and, of course, the  Wizard himself.

A huge success at its 2019 premiere, The Wizard of Oz is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town!
