CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS AND NEW WORKS,
APRIL 15TH AND 16TH, 2022
Momentum Dance Company, under the co-artistic direction of Hayley Grafflin and Lacie Sereika, will present Carnival of the Animals and New Works this April at the Irving Arts Center.
Here is a note about the show from our directors:
“Carnival of the Animals is a fantastic musical suite by French composer Camille Saint-Saens which journies through a musical voyage of different animals along the way. It is a fun, light-hearted, family-friendly ballet about 25 minutes in duration. The second half of the show will be a blend of New Works with choreography presented by directors and select MDC principals. There will be classical ballet, modern, and contemporary works on both pointe and flat. Guest artists may have appearances as well. We are excited to get back in the studio and create fresh pieces for the company, and produce a beautiful spring show!”
