On Saturday, October 30th, Twin City Ballet Company held its season opening performance at ULM’s Brown Auditorium. This year’s Talk of the Town was a mixed repertoire concert featuring high-energy, soulful dancing. Choreographers Leaia Alsup, Joe Istre and Kristy Nilsson created stirring pieces that displayed the incredible strength and artistry that Twin City Ballet is known for. Familiar music including hits from Willie Nelson and Mumford and Sons complemented the rich sound of strings from Italian composer Ezio Bosso.

Twin City Ballet, under the artistic direction of Linda Lavender Ford, aims to create an exciting dance experience in the community, as well as offer an opportunity for training and stage experience to talented young dancers.
