Fall Arts Preview
By Sara Ziegler / World-Herald staff writer
Toes will be tapping — both onstage and in the audience — when dance troupes hit town.
Ailey II, an offshoot of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, will bring its energy to the Orpheum Theater in October, while Momix, a company of dancer-illusionists, will perform “Opus Cactus” at the Lied Center in April and at the Orpheum in May.
Omaha Performing Arts is partnering with the Institute for Holocaust Education to present “The Legacy Project: A Dance of Hope,” a piece about the Holocaust by the Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company.
And Ballet Nebraska, in its seventh season, will take on Tchaikovsky’s classic “Swan Lake.” It will once again delight young and old with “The Nutcracker,” then end the year with “Momentum.”
