Ballet Nebraska presents: Momentum
April 1, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Ballet Nebraska’s talented professional dancers hail from around the nation and abroad, making the Midwest their home to share the excitement of dance with others. Through the company’s expressive performing artists, acclaimed choreographers, and skilled teachers, Ballet Nebraska plays a key role in the cultural vitality of the region.
Momentum, Ballet Nebraska’s award-winning mixed-repertory program, presents an entertaining collection of short works that showcase the artistic range and variety of ballet. Topping the bill: Bournonville Divertissements, a sparkling compilation of selections by 19-century master choreographer August Bournonville, staged for Ballet Nebraska by former New York City Ballet principal dancer Nilas Martins. Featuring the Danish master’s famously exuberant footwork, the ballet is presented in conjunction with Joslyn Art Museum in celebration of its European collection.
