In the absence of open concert halls and theaters, the hour-long special “United We Dance” looks back on awe-inspiring dance performances curated from a series of gala concerts in Indianapolis in years prior.

Each ballet segment is introduced by the dancers and choreographers who brought these signature performances to life.

The special also includes reflections from the world’s foremost dancers and artistic directors on a year where the typical creative and rehearsal processes have been disrupted, and there have been little to no live performances.
