Maine-based Ice Dance International launches a multi-state tour this spring
After a ground-breaking 2019 performance that made it the first ice dance company invited to the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival site in Becket, Mass and with two popular television specials in regular rotation on PBS stations nationwide bringing their artistry and athleticism to millions of viewers, the Maine-based Ice Dance International (IDI) launches a multi-state tour this spring.
Champion skaters Alissa Czisny and Rohene Ward will perform with other world-renowned competitive ice dancers, bringing to life new works and excerpts of public television specials. IN FLIGHT: LIVE performances will be in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Vermont, Idaho, Utah and Colorado.
IN FLIGHT: LIVE showcases a mix of world-premiere pieces and previous works, blending emotional and stirring performances set to familiar classical music and contemporary artists including Thom Yorke, Ben Kweller, Max Richter and Artie Shaw. Directed by IDI Executive Artistic Director Douglas Webster – an accomplished choreographer whose work has been seen in arenas and stadiums, and on television throughout the world – the tour includes new works by Webster and dances created for the company by ballet legend Edward Villella, in-demand dancemaker Trey McIntyre, top international choreographers Benoit Richaud and Cindy Stuart, and IN FLIGHT: LIVE company member Rohene Ward.
IDI has reached more than 47,000 skating enthusiasts live and millions more through its television specials. The company has been featured in The New York Times, the Boston Globe, Dance Informa, Skating Magazine and many more!
