, a world premier to the live music by The Silver Arm and Ian Barrett and choreographed by C. R. Barrett, is based upon the internationally acclaimed children's book, The Little Town of Spirals
by Cindy Matyi
, with projections of Matyi's beautiful celtic artwork. “The inspiration for Little Town of Spirals
came through my travels in Ireland,” said Matyi. “I was showing a young student how to draw spirals, and together we created the start of a magical town where spirals rose from chimneys, blossomed in flowers and brought fun to so many places. I never dreamed the book would one day serve as the theme for a ballet. I’m extremely excited that my visual art medium is being expressively translated into a performing art.”
Little Town of Spirals
naturally lends itself to performing arts interpretation. The story is about a delightful place with mystical qualities reminiscent of Celtic lands and places. It’s a town in motion with the joy of creation; and, it features many unique natural creatures that provide wonderful character options for young dancers. “The book's imaginative and detailed Celtic paintings, with their rich colors and universal theme of spiral movement, begged to be translated into music and dance,” says Barrett, founder and director, ballet tech ohio

to the romantic and lilting music of Chopin and in the Swan Lake Pas de trois; Cervilio Amador
, Principal dancer of the CBC will wow you with his exciting performance in The Flames of Paris
