Two dancers swoon against a cloudscape with handwritten text and postage cancellations reminiscent of an old postcard.

Two dancers in romantic 1950’s attire strike a dramatic swooning pose against a pink and blue cloudscape. Handwritten text overlay and postage cancellations add to the vintage aesthetic reminiscent of an old postcard.

Oceánica Ballet soars in a showcase of dances with themes of flight and retro Americana. Flying Colors features works by Oceánica Ballet Artistic Co-Directors Edgar Lepe and Robert Lowman. In a new work set to Gerswhin’s “3 Preludes,” Lowman takes inspiration from the physics of flight. Lowman’s “Lark Ascending” juxtaposes moments of isolation and community in a meditation on the beauty of nature and the journey of “leaving the nest.” Lepe’s “Swingin’” takes a step back in time with vivacious dances set to 1940’s Big Band music. See Flying Colors with purchase of museum admission at Hiller Aviation Museum.
