Showcasing a variety of dance styles like ballet, swing, jazz, and pointe, Ballet Nebraska presents “Momentum:” a collection of seven short dance works including Dance Sport, a comic look at the intersection between dance and sport, a contemporary piece called Love Games by a Chicago-based dance company, Dying Swan, a solo piece, and finally, Cleopatra.

Dancers will gracefully tell the story of Cleopatra, the last ruler of classical Egypt. This piece choreographed by Erika Overturff, the artistic director of Ballet Nebraska is inspired by “To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures,” a traveling exhibit currently on display at the Joslyn Art Museum.

“Momentum” will be performed this Friday evening and again Saturday afternoon at Joslyn Art Museum in midtown Omaha.
