October 11 Momentum - Featuring Habeneras: The Music of Cuba
Program begins at 7:30 PM in Joslyn's Witherspoon Concert Hall

American Midwest Ballet (AMB) leaps into their tenth season with Momentum, featuring the Omaha premiere of Frank Chaves’ sultry, colorful Habaneras: The Music of Cuba – plus two of their most-requested favorites: Broadway legend Ann Reinking’s In the Style of Bob Fosse and Erika Overturff’s Party Animals.

The season also includes the beloved family classic The Nutcracker during the holiday, followed in April by Harrison McEldowney’s Swing, Swing, Swing, a celebration of the spirit of the greatest generation as told through rollicking, elegant, and poignant dance vignettes of the 1940s.

Tickets for Momentum start at $22. A limited number of special VIP tickets are available, which include premium seating plus a ticket to the exclusive Momentum Patron Reception in Joslyn’s beautiful Storz Fountain Court. Enjoy a tasty bite while mingling with AMB's professional ballet dancers after the performance! Tickets are available at Ticket Omaha or by calling (402) 345-0606.
