Dayton Ballet to feature world premiere by Wright State grad Susanne Payne


You may have wondered how a choreographer comes up with the idea for a new dance.

In the case of Wright State University graduate Susanne Payne, it all began with a book she couldn’t put down.

The result, “Dreams of Flight,” will have its world premiere next weekend when the Dayton Ballet presents its winter concert entitled “Diversity in Dance.” In addition to Payne’s new work, the program will feature ballets choreographed by the company’s artistic director Karen Russo Burke and by the late Gerald Arpino.

Performances run from Thursday, Feb 13, through Sunday, Feb. 16.
