BEST PERFORMING ARTS GROUP
North Carolina Dance Theatre
A repeat winner. The closer North Carolina Dance Theatre brings us to the action, the more exciting they get. Keeping their fall Innovative Works showcase of new and contemporary pieces parked at Booth Playhouse, NCDT invited us back in the spring for second helpings at the Booth with a themed program, A Night at the Movies. Big ballets at the Belk, the perennial Nutcracker and a bouquet of Balanchine continued to impress. But the big, brash bombshell of the season was Dwight Rhoden’s modernized music-biz Othello, a landmark choreography that promises to reverberate across the dance world.
