Ballet Arkansas presents Momentum

April 25th - April 27th, 2014

At the Arkansas Repertory Theatre

Ballet Arkansas brings the beauty of dance to life through an evening of exceptional variations of movement, including Gerald Arpino’s BIRTHDAY VARIATIONS, set to some of Guiseppe Verdi’s vibrant opera-ballet music, and a newly commissioned version of Ravel’s “Bolero,” choreographed by Kiyon Gaines’s, Pacific Northwest Ballet Soloist. Momentum, directed by newly appointed Artistic Director, Michael Bearden, will make for an evening to celebrate the pure artistry of dance.
