School of Ballet. Blue of a different dimension took to the field at Lucas Oil
Stadium on Sept. 12 during the 6:00 p.m. intermission at the Drum Corp
International Quarterfinals. The 14-member Indianapolis School of Ballet young
dancers troupe, clad in shimmering metallic blue costumes sparked with gathered
flounces, moved from the end zone to a drop and crawl at the 30-yard line.
There, they massed into a circle mid-field, spontaneously erupting into wave
upon wave of movements in groupings of fours and threes and twos — all to
music by Cirque du Soleil.
Scott Jovovich's concept of people exploring a new environment, experiencing
individual parts of space for the first time felt on-the-spot real as the
dancers acclimated to the squishy feel of turf underfoot. The wonderment was in
the diversity of movement with no repetitions of a given routine and the
costumes by Loukia Finale. The crowd whooped and cheered.
