Emily Long and Alec Roth in Spring Is in the AirThere were several moments during the evening performance of Spring Is in the Air – presented April 12 at the Adler Theatre – in which I sat slack-jawed in awe of the choreography executed by Ballet Quad Cities.

Domingo Rubio in 2012's DraculaDomingo Rubio left no doubt that his Count Dracula was in charge during Friday’s performance of Ballet Quad Cities’ Dracula at Moline's Scottish Rite Cathedral. (The production ended its two-night run on Saturday.) From his bat-like entrance – with the dancer slowly flapping his black cape from front to back as he made his way through the darkened auditorium – to his death, Rubio’s Dracula never seemed controlled by anyone, and that included choreographer Deanna Carter. Rubio gave the impression that his Dracula wasn’t moving because Carter gave him predetermined choreography, but because it was the way he wanted to move.

Glass (Ballet) Slippers: Ballet Quad Cities' "Cinderella" at the Adler Theatre

Ballet Quad Cities' CinderellaThere were two particular elements that made Ballet Quad Cities’ Cinderella (which ran for two Adler Theatre performances on April 20) especially watchable beyond Courtney Lyon’s exquisite choreography: clear storytelling, and humor. Not at one moment during Saturday evening’s performance did I find it hard to figure out which part of the fairytale was being depicted in dance, even down to the details of what specific characters were doing and feeling at all times.

Ballet Quad Cities' The Sleeping BeautyWhat struck me most about Ballet Quad Cities’ Saturday-night performance of The Sleeping Beauty was how easy it was to follow the storyline even though it was told entirely in dance (set to Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky’s score), and featured absolutely no dialogue.

"I Love You," in Pieces: Ballet Quad Cities' "Love Stories: Love on the Run," February 18 at Augustana College's Wallenberg Hall

Jake Lyon and Emily Kate Long in the Love Stories piece Prelude to EternityWhat first struck me during February 18’s performance of Ballet Quad Cities' Love Stories: Love on the Run was the venue, as Augustana College's Wallenberg Hall provided exactly the spatial experience I wanted for this series of balletic vignettes. There’s a grandness to the architecture, particularly the Tuscan pillars, that lends itself to the high-art air of ballet, but there's also an intimacy there that allowed the audience to be close to the dancers, who performed on a raised platform. I often lost myself in the beauty, passion, and emotion of the choreographed works because I was so near to the action, and not separated by a sea of seats in a formal theatrical setting.
