Moody Performance Hall



Gershwin Rhythms
Closing the season is Gershwin Rhythms – an exciting performance of dance and live music! This production is a family-friendly one-hour performance with the professional dancers of Avant Chamber Ballet and live music.
First is George Balanchine’s Who Cares? – an audience favorite that perfectly pairs Gershwin’s toe-tapping melodies with Balanchine’s genius choreography.
You’ll also get to see an excerpt from the collaboration between choreographer Katie Cooper and local composer Quinn Mason. The performance will mark the world premiere of both Cooper’s choreography and of Mason’s String Quartet No. 2.
Don’t miss this exciting end to the 2018-19 Family Saturdays Series!
