ELLSWORTH- On Saturday April 23rd at 7 p.m. and Sunday April 24th at 2 p.m., experience the passion and the excitement live on the Stanley Subaru Stage at The Grand in Ellsworth as The Robinson Ballet Company presents their spring 2016 performance 'Dingolay!'

Tickets are $17 for adults and seniors, $15 for members and $8 for youth age 12 and under. All seats are general admission.

You know them as the company that brings you 'The Nutcracker,' but if you've never seen RBC in their other electrifying performances you only know half the story. Athleticism, artistry, mood, movement, poetry, emotion, imagination and unbridled joy are just some of the elements you will find in this event. Featuring steel drum music by guest musicians Panstorm, a community-based steel drum band led by John Kollman, the event will be a mixed-works dance performance.

Artistic Directors Keith and Maureen Robinson will each present works which will be accompanied with other works choreographed by Stevie McGary and Mallory Osborne. 'One Final Effort / Let's Dance' choreographed by Keith Robinson is a ballet in five sections, showcasing the dancers in different moods and styles. The body of work is made up of solos, pas de deuxs, and group tour de force movement. 'Eight Go Dancing' by Maureen Robinson will be a lyrical dance piece with a Latin influence, danced to "La Isla Bonita" and "Sunny Ray" as performed by Panstorm.

Stevie McGary will present 'Enoch's Third,' a contemporary piece based on excerpts of the Second Book of Enoch - specifically the traveling within the third of seven heavens. Set to Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B Minor, 'Enoch's Third' is an otherworldly adventure. 'Let Us Move Air' is Mallory Osborne's first piece of choreography with the Robinson Ballet and will be danced with accompaniment by Panstorm. It incorporates a variety of quick and smooth movements that correspond with a complex sound. The piece demonstrates many layers of movement as the dancers create a relationship with the space and air surrounding them.
