IndyFringe: Beyond Ballet

By Wendy Carson

Whether you are an avid fan of ballet, casual observer or complete novice to the art, this show will captivate you with its style and variations.

From traditional dances to inventive takes – as well as a small preview of an upcoming offering – this show highlights what ballet is and can be. The performers here are still young students, yet their style and grace shows that they have honed their talents well.

The most inventive number presented is a solo dance to John Lennon’s classic song, “Imagine,” in which tap and ballet are combined to make something that is breathtakingly beautiful.

This is a perfect showcase for the Indianapolis School of Ballet to introduce new audiences to their program as well as the beauty and dynamics of its performance. It is definitely a must-see performance that will inspire and delight.

Performances on the Theatre on the Square main stage Friday and Saturday, Aug. 26-27. Info and tickets at indyfringefestival.com.
