American Midwest Ballet Swing, Swing, Swing! Orpheum Theater

It was a time like no other, when young G.I. Joes and Rosie the Riveters gave their all to save the world… then threw away their cares to the beat of big bands and the exhilaration of swing dancing.  This exuberantly unforgettable work was American Midwest Ballet’s very first production. Now, it’s back to help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary Season!

Patron reception may be added for an additional $25 per person.

It was a time like no other, when young G.I. Joes and Rosie the Riveters gave their all to save the world… then threw away their cares to the beat of big bands and the exhilaration of swing dancing.  This exuberantly unforgettable work was American Midwest Ballet’s very first production. Now, it’s back to help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary Season! 

Master choreographer and showman Harrison McEldowney expertly brings the Swing Era to life in this high-energy showcase for the multi-talented dancers of American Midwest Ballet, backed by live onstage jazz from the sizzling DoyleMusic Combo. Bandleader Doyle Tipler has reunited the musicians who brought swinging sound to the 2010 production – prompting one critic to write, “Who would have thought that the best jazz show in Omaha is at the ballet?”

A tribute to the Second World War's "Greatest Generation,” Swing, Swing, Swing! was American Midwest Ballet's very first mainstage production in 2010. Now it is back to celebrate the company’s tenth season and kick off its next decade.

Swing, Swing, Swing! evokes the spirit of the war years through dance vignettes that range from rollicking, to elegant, to poignant, to romantic. You’ll be swept away as a guy, a girl, and their friends flirt, kick up their heels, fall in love, and most of all… Swing, Swing, Swing!

Patron reception may be added for an additional $25 per person.
