Butler University’s department of Dance presents the Midwinter Dance Festival this Friday, February 12 and Saturday, February 13. As one of the best dance schools in the entire United States at one of the largest universities in Indiana, performances from these young dancers promise to be engaging and disciplined. Performances begin at 8:00 pm on both days in Clowes Memorial Hall. Tickets range from $21.50 to $28.50 for Indianapolis people, $17.00 to $23.00 for Indianapolis kids and $14.00 to $20.00 for students and seniors.
The Dance department at Butler University contributes to the ongoing Mahler Project with an evening of new works by resident choreographers in their Midwinter Dance Festival. The evening features Dark Elegies by Antony Tudor and Kindertotenlieder by Gustav Mahler. The performance fuses emotion, music and dance as a showcase for Tudor’s revolutionary style. Choreographed by Donald Mahler, of the Antony Tudor Foundation, last September and October, he has returned this February to take the piece from the studio to the stage.
The Butler University dance department season will conclude with Swan Lake April 16 to 18. As one of the most popular classical ballets of all time, Swan Lake tells the story of good versus evil in a simplistic yet beautiful setting. Set to Tchaikovsky’s wondrous score as performed by the Butler Symphony Orchestra, Swan Lake is sure to capture hearts.
Before the Midwinter Dance Festival at Butler University this weekend, grab dinner at any of the numerous Indianapolis restaurants in Broad Ripple Village. After the show, head back to this nearby Indianapolis cultural district for drinks at these great Indianapolis bars.
