There’s good news and bad news at Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre. The bad news is that the company had to cancel its March 4 and 5 performances of Tara Lee’s Everything is Waiting at the First Center for the Arts.
“I was expecting us to take a financial loss at a time when resources are tight,” explained Terminus’ artistic and executive director John Welker. Like all arts organizations, Terminus has been impacted by the Covid shutdown.
Lee’s ballet was first performed in 2019 at the Off the EDGE dance festival at Kennesaw State University’s Dance Theater.
The good news is that the company’s intrepid dancers recently rolled up their Marley floor at the Westside Cultural Arts Center, their home for the last five years, and moved to a space three times larger at the TULA Arts Center in Buckhead. They are in the 7,700 square foot space formerly occupied by MOCA GA, now located in a different area of the building. (There’s been an exodus of art galleries from that building recently, including September Gray, which is now located on Miami Circle.) In true Terminus fashion, the dancers themselves did an initial build out of the space, with more renovations and upgrades in the works.
“We’re incredibly excited,” Welker says. “It allows us an amazing opportunity for further growth of our creative repertoire, of the school, and the possibility of more intown shows.”
