Motown Ballet is a multimedia world premiere inspired by the musical legends of the 60’s and 70’s. This mixed repertoire evening will blend a variety of dance genres such as jazz, hip hop, modern, contemporary, and classical ballet.
William Starrett’s original motivation was inspired by the Columbia City Ballet’s mission of diversity and inclusion. No matter your background, we can come together to love and embrace the fantastic, inspiring music of Motown. Motivated by the messages of joy, the rhythms, and the exuberance of the exceptional Motown artists, the sounds of rejoicing is a sure-fire way to move the audience into elation. Let’s celebrate together this remarkable era of creativity and brilliance through dance and music.
