What’s Your Why?

Repertoire Concert Encore Performance

Due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the CDC’s recommendation to cancel all events of more than 50 people through the beginning of May, NPB is suspending all rehearsals and activities related to “What’s Your Why” and “Wizard of Oz.” NPB will be presenting both performances in their entirety ​next season​ with as many current cast members as are able to make the commitment.

“What’s Your Why?” is NPB’s second annual repertory concert. This encore performance will reflect on what motivates dancers, artists, and members of the community through classical and contemporary pieces.

This performance is sponsored in part by The Lorain Palace Theater, Spectrum Resource Center and School, The Bowyer Family, and The Veard Family.

About the Show

The performance will begin with contemporary repertoire that challenges the dancers with athleticism and artistry, and features video interview of the dancers answering the question “why do you dance?”

NPB will then present excerpts of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake as they showcase the technical, classical strength of the company and invited student participants with choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov.

The program will conclude with the premiere of a new work by Artistic Director Janet Dziak that will engage the audience as she tells her personal story through movement. The NPB band will return to share the stage and provide live music for this dynamic piece.
