Dance is the rhythmic and expressive movement of the human body. It is beautifully performed and staged 30 times during the year by the 22-year old Ballet Quad Cities. This month I was excited and honored to attend Ballet Quad Cities, Dracula, a classic tale “of love, lust and horror.” The return of this dramatic piece was staged in a new venue at the Spotlight Theatre and Event Center in downtown Moline, Illinois. Formerly the Scottish Rite Cathedral, the theatre is a worthy venue for professional dance.
During the holiday season, the Quad Cities has many performances to get you into the holiday spirit. From theatre productions, The Nutcracker, and concerts, you won’t want to miss the festive presentations.
It’s going to be a spooky, scary Halloween season this October in the Quad Cities area! There are plenty of places and events to put you in the Halloween spirit.
The Quad Cities offer a wide variety of theatre shows during Summer 2017 from Shakespeare to Disney and from the West Side to the Rock of Ages. You can applaud your way through the summer months out under the stars or inside under the lights. The venues and prices vary, but the history and creativity are certain!
Early May is hoppin’ in downtown Rock Island! Spring is in full bloom and Rock Island is excited to share the downtown with visitors.
Quad City Arts kicked off the holiday season with the juried art exhibit, Art @ the Airport: Everybody Dance, at the Quad City International Airport Gallery. This collaborative juried exhibition includes 24 works of art by 18 artists as well as costumes and head pieces specifically designed for various Ballet Quad Cities productions.
