Momentum!: Cleveland Ballet highlights the power and elegance of dance in sole Florida performance of 2022-23 season
The nationally renowned Cleveland Ballet, a midwestern regional powerhouse recognized for its innovation and artistic excellence, presents Momentum!, an exhilarating one-night-only performance of world class ballet featuring some of today’s internationally celebrated dancers at Fort Lauderdale’s Amaturo Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts this February 24, 2023.
A world of ethereal, thrilling, and dynamic movement, of human passions and experiences curated by company Artistic Director and award-winning choreographer Gladisa Guadalupe, Momentum! offers an enchanting juxtaposition of classic and new choreography.
“We are excited to share Cleveland Ballet’s artistry with audiences in Florida in this our company’s eighth season,” stated Ms. Guadalupe. “Momentum!, our debut performance at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts – one of the most-visited performance theaters in the world, is designed for dance lovers of every age and offers an energy and plethora of emotions that is sure to be enjoyed. It is an honor to present our talented dancers on this world-renowned stage.”
Momentum! will include excerpts from Margo Sappington’s Rodin Mis en Vie – where dancers embody living statuary – Don Quixote’s well-known Grand Pas de deux and Swan Lake’s White Swan Pas de deux. Juxtaposing these works are two original works by Ms. Guadalupe: a classical quintet choreographed to Schubert’s Piano Sonata No. 13 in A major, Allegro, followed by the thrilling one-act ballet Momentum, set to Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor.
Founded in 2014 by Ukranian American businessman Dr. Michael Krasnyansky and international dancer and choreographer turned Artistic Director Gladisa Guadalupe, Cleveland Ballet in eight short seasons has established itself as a nationally renowned ballet company acclaimed for its commitment to innovation, diversity and creativity. One of the fastest growing companies in the nation, Cleveland’s resident ballet company, comprising thirty-two artists from all over the globe, is a smaller, more flexible company than most traditional ballet companies. Three years into the company’s career, Cleveland Ballet became the resident company of Playhouse Square, the largest theater district outside of New York.
The company, now in its eighth season, has developed a reputation for creating and sustaining traditions and cultivating appreciation for one of the most dramatic, elegant, and powerful art forms. Visit www.clevelandballet.org to learn more.
