Award winning choreographer, Dianne McIntyre brings the stories of Cuban seniors to life

Verb Ballets has had the honor of working this spring with guest choreographer and multi-award winning local artist Dianne McIntyre. Her career spans four decades with choreography for dance, theatre, television and film. In January she participated in the Cleveland Foundation Creative Fusion Cuba Edition in the tour to Cuba with Verb Ballets and five other Cleveland organizations. While in Cuba she gathered the personal life stories of several older adults. Upon returning to Cleveland she began working with Verb Ballets to create dances to tell the stories of these amazing individuals. These inspiring stories have now been brought to life through the beauty and power of dance. Verb Ballets will debut these plus others at Ballet UpClose on May 19, 2017. Read More...
