News: Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre announces its second fall season of shows

After a critically acclaimed debut season that put it firmly into the upper echelon of Atlanta dance, Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre has announced its upcoming fall lineup with two productions: one at Serenbe and the other at the troupe’s home base at the Westside Cultural Arts Center.

The season will kick off outdoors at Deer Hollow in Serenbe October 5–14 with fall-en, a double bill of new works by Terminus cofounder Heath Gill that will explore our perception and response to the unknown. Gill choreographed LORE last year, which was also staged at Deer Hollow in Serenbe.

And November 9–11 at Westside, Terminus will present Translation by Atlanta native and New York City Ballet choreographer Troy Schumacher. The work was first presented last year and will be expanded for this production.

Terminus was formed last year by five former Atlanta Ballet star dancers: John Welker, Tara Lee, Christian Clark, Rachel Van Buskirk and Gill.

During the off-season, the troupe added ex-Atlanta Ballet principal dancer Christine Welker as education director as the troupe began to offer ballet classes.

Terminus also added ex-Atlanta Ballet dancer Alexandre Gonzaga Barros as a company dancer and ex-Atlanta Ballet apprentice dancer Laura Morton as a protege dancer.
