Louisville Ballet and the Kentucky College of Art and Design are partnering for the first time for a one-of-a-kind show that’s taking place Friday and Saturday.

They’re hoping technology will play a role in satisfying longtime fans and attracting newcomers.

The bitterly cold week didn’t keep Louisville Ballet dancers from coming out to rehearse. That’s because the show must go on. “For most of us, it’s been a 10-month project,” said Justin Hogan, choreographer for the Louisville Ballet.

The project aims to push ballet into the 21st century and make it more interactive than ever before. “I think you have to respect the classics, and you have to respect the history of where we’ve come from, but you have to push the envelope forward. There are new things coming out every day. There’s a new iPhone every other year. We have to continue that in our art form as well,” Hogan said.
