American Midwest Ballet Opens Season with ‘Momentum’
October 7th, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”American Midwest Ballet returns this season next Friday October 11, beginning with the fan favorite show, Momentum. Performed every year, Momentum is not a single ballet, but a mixed repertory production and an opportunity for audiences to experience various types of music and styles. This yearâ€™s performance is especially festive, marking the companyâ€™s 10th year. Momentum will feature Artistic Director Erika Overturffâ€™s original choreography, â€œParty Animalsâ€, some music from Cuba, and a company favorite, â€œIn the Style of Bob Fosseâ€, which is being performed for the second time.
Following the glamour of Fosse and American jazz, Momentum moves to Latin Rhythm, with â€œHabaneras, The Music of Cuba.â€
Overturffâ€™s â€œParty Animalsâ€ keeps the evening festive, inspired by animal themed music and some creative interpretation from company dancers.
American Midwest Balletâ€™s Momentum is this weekend, Friday October 11th at the Joslyn Art Museum at 7:30pm and Sunday the 13th at the Iowa Western Arts Center at 2:00pm. For more information or tickets, visit AMBallet.org
