The program:

These shows will feature the premiere of “Disquiet”, a quartet set to music by award winning Michigan based composer Bill Ryan. Ryan’s score, “Solitude in Transit” has inspired an intense dance with ominous overtones. This new work will be danced by company veteran Anthi Maria Lindsey alongside the dance company‘s newest members – Jeannie, Emmy and Camelia.

Created in 1975, “Debussy Dance” is a quintet set to the first two movements of Debussy’s String Quartet. Reconstructing the dance from the blurry old video tapes has been a challenge, but the energy and passion of the dance shine through.

The program will also include a reworking of “Uncharted”, an eerie and complex work created in 2003. “Stirring”, also created in 2003 will add a contrast in mood and style. Set to beautiful folk songs from eastern Europe, this quintet takes the dancers on a journey through moods both joyful and heartfelt. A solo from 1998, “Only” will be danced by company member Killian von Holdt.

Completing the program will be “Convergence”, which had its premiere in 2022, and “The Get-Go”, an audience favorite choreographed in 2013 which we revived last fall and are repeating on this program


Inside the Orchestra

For many  years we have added a dance component to Inside the Orchestra’s Tiny Tots and public school programming for many years! We reach thousands of additional public school students each year by enriching their music programming with a dance performance.

Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra.

Designed for children six and under, Tiny Tots is a 45-minute program that gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Children are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving. They are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. The music selection, design, and scripting of Tiny Tots is geared to connect very young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Children are also encouraged to take a closer look at the instruments and ask questions of the musicians after the concert has concluded. Every Tiny Tots event includes guest performers from some of our cultural partner organizations.
