Cincinnati Ballet reaches out to disabled children.

Quote

Special performances are always a treat at the Cincinnati Ballet, and in 2016's performance of The Nutcracker, dancer Jack Barlow, who has Down syndrome, was the surprise.

"Jack had actual choreography," Cincinnati Ballet vice president of community and inclusion Julie Sunderland said. "He had to saute, he had to plie, he had to do his heels. He had real live choreography, harder than any other seven year old that was in the show."

Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre presents a piece by Troy Schumacher.

Quote

Translation, which was originally made for BalletCollective’s New York season in 2017, will be reworked and expanded for Terminus. Schumacher commissioned an essay from cult science fiction writer Ken Liu to inspire his choreography.

A review of "Balanchine: the City Center Years" by Brian Seibert in The New York Times.

Quote

Presenting 13 works by the world’s greatest ballet choreographer, performed by dancers from the world’s greatest ballet companies, it could hardly fail to be marvelous. And yet the programming left much to be desired. Balanchine fans can argue about the most disappointing absence. For me, it wasn’t a Balanchine work so much as a Balanchine quality: boldness.
