Season 14 for American Midwest Ballet Opens This Week, Erin Alarcón Talks About What to Expect


American Midwest Ballet is a resident professional dance company, bringing work beyond words to audiences in Nebraska, Iowa, and beyond. Performing at home and on tour, their mission is to inspire people through dance programs of the highest quality: breathtaking performances, enriching education, and uplifting community engagement.

Erin Alarcón is the Ballet Master at American Midwest Ballet and she joined Mike Hogan on “Live & Local” to talk about the start of the new season. It kicks off with “Momentum,” a bold menu of brilliant dance which opens the season October 14 & 15 at the Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center in Council Bluffs. From brilliantly classical, to intensely contemporary, to poignantly romantic, to packed with high-energy athleticism – the works you see in Momentum always add up to a rewarding and stimulating spectrum of creativity.
