This week, a dance company from Ukraine - in exile since Russia’s invasion more than six months ago - will perform on our campus: the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The world-renowned Kviv City Ballet will present a feature-length “Swan Lake” on Wednesday - and on Thursday and Friday, it will offer a mixed repertoire with the Chattanooga Ballet.

All three performances - now sold out - will be held at the recently renovated Roland Hayes Concert Hall in the UTC Fine Arts Center.

Bob Boyer is director of UTC Presents.

Brian McSween is CEO and Artistic Director of the Chattanooga Ballet, a co-sponsor of this week’s performances.
