317-955-7525 or

Explore modern dance and classical ballet with local artistic directors who are inspired by their iconic mentors and teachers. Discover how choreographers use movement and music to inspire their creations, see their work first-hand with a studio performance, and enjoy an exhibit of dance photography.

Dance Kaleidoscope’s Artistic Director David Hochoy, a Martha Graham protégé, and Indianapolis School of Ballet’s Artistic Director Victoria Lyras, a product of George Balanchine's School of American Ballet, will participate in a moderated discussion led by Rita Kohn, NUVO dance critic and member of the Board of Directors of the International Dance Critics Association.

Participate in an “up close and personal” setting in the spacious studios of the Indianapolis School of Ballet and learn how tradition was passed in direct lineage from mentor to dancer, and to a third generation in Indianapolis. Enhancing the program will be an exhibit of dance photography by Crowe's Eye Photography, Freddie Kelvin, and Laura Breece. These artists specialize in capturing an ephemeral moment in dance and translating the performance medium into two-dimensional art.
