Premiere tour stops in Jasper

From Local Sources

JASPER — Jasper Community Arts will present a performance by viral sensation Hiplet Ballerinas at 7:30 p.m. Saturday on the stage of the Jasper Arts Center.

Chicago Multicultural Dance Center’s select Hiplet Ballerina Company fuses classical pointe technique with urban dance rooted in communities of color, fueled by inclusivity, modern movement and Instagram-ready style.

Hiplet Ballerinas first found fame in 2016 when videos the group’s work went viral on BuzzFeed, “Good Morning America” and The Huffington Post. Since then, they’ve traveled the world performing during Paris Fashion Week, at half-time shows for the NBA, in Hong Kong’s Chinese New Year’s Day Parade and at other venues.

Tickets — priced at $35 for adults, $33 for seniors and $30 for students — are available by visiting or calling 812-482-3070. Group rates are available.
