Sept. 22, 2011

The South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center (SMPAC) continues its diverse season with The Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II’s Classical to Contemporary on Sunday, October 9, at 1:30 pm. Experience the energy, spirit and emotion of up-and-coming dancers as they take you on a journey from classical to contemporary styles.

 

SMPAC Director Chad Piechocki states, “This performance will showcase innovative, up-and-coming talent, as well as introduce our audience to the many styles of ballet. We have not presented many dance performances over the years, but we think it is definitely a genre we want to see more of in our space. Classical to Contemporary will have something for everyone from those new to the genre to ballet enthusiasts.”

About The Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II

The Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II’s young dancers come from all over the world to learn and participate in Milwaukee Ballet’s artistic repertoire, which is rooted in classical ballet with a strong commitment to new and contemporary works. Classical to Contemporary showcases their technique, athleticism and individuality as dancers.

 

The Milwaukee Ballet II program, established in 1978, nurtures and develops dancers’ technical skills and artistry required for a professional career in dance. The Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II curriculum is based on the artistic vision of Milwaukee Ballet and gives dancers the training needed to bridge the gap between student and professional through performing opportunities with the Milwaukee Ballet Company, as well as performances created specifically for Milwaukee Ballet II. These dancers are a vital part of the Department of Education’s mission to reach and educate the community. Their participation in outreach programs through teaching and performing fully enhances their education.

 

The South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center (SMPAC) provides the greater community with a creative, innovative and diverse exploration of the performing arts. Through the many opportunities offered, the SMPAC is bringing art to life on stage and to the lives of the people in the South Shore and surrounding communities. Located on the South Milwaukee 6-12 campus, the SMPAC serves as a creative outlet for the greater community, as well as the students of South Milwaukee.

 

Along with the nine-show Performing Arts Series, the SMPAC opens its doors to other presenters to bring such acts as Cantare Chorale, Tommy Emmanuel, John Hiatt, Ian Hunter, Joe Lovano and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. They also provide a home to the School District of South Milwaukee events as well as Grant Park Players, the local community theatre.

 

The South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center is located inside the South Milwaukee High School at 901 15th Avenue, South Milwaukee, WI between College and Rawson Avenues. It is easily accessible from I-94 and 794. Free parking is located in the northwest parking lot. Patrons should enter door #9. For tickets or directions, call 414-766-5049.
