We're joined this week by Rhea Keller and Malachi Squires, dancers with the Central Illinois Ballet. They're dancing the principal roles in the company's performance of "Dracula: Dance on the Dark Side" this weekend. They talk about how their roles differ physically from other roles in the ballet repertoire, and about how the Dracula story lends itself to portrayal in dance . The ballet itself is more recent, and this production features more contemporary choreography.
The Central Illinois Ballet presents "Dracula: Dance on the Dark Side" Friday and Saturday night at the ICC Performing Arts Center on the campus in East Peoria.
