The magic behind the magic is this year's theme for Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre's annual concert and fund-raising event rolled into one. The company's rehearsal space is transformed into a French cabaret with members of the young company serving pastries and generally adding to the festive atmosphere while the main company frolics through flirtatious dance fare.
"We will also encore excerpts from the company's critically acclaimed production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and offer a sneak preview of some of the pieces the company will present at the International Ballet Festival in Riga, Latvia," Gregory Hancock added.
The concert, entitled Ooh La Laa, will be held at The Performer's Edge, 12995 Old Meridian Street, Carmel, Feb. 3-19, Fridays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $30, which includes concert, beverages and pastries. Call 317-846-2441, www.gregoryhancockdancetheatre.org.
