Under the direction of founder Adam Sage, the deft dancers of the Missouri Ballet Theatre Company demonstrate their pirouetting prowess during traditional and innovative performances. A company of 14 dancers showcases contemporary choreography during Concepts II, a label-dodging production that combines the skills of en pointe dancers with the talents of Midwestern musicians, composers, and vocalists. Known for her six albums and penning hits for Garth Brooks, recording artist Benita Hill takes the stage alongside local pianist Jon Garrett, enriching the production with choral arrangements and a post-performance rap battle with a parrot.
