At tonight's Pointe of Departure performance at Cain Park, dancers wed ballet, tap, modern, and jazz steps to classic movie tunes. A dozen troupe members bust moves to everything from Singin' in the Rain to James Bond's theme song. "These are not your grand-scale ballets," says co-founder Karen Gabay.
Gabay and business partner Raymond Rodriguez formed the Cleveland ballet troupe five years ago. Although both now live in California, they take a great interest in the local arts scene. They also stay busy with outside projects: Rodriguez was Jerry Rice's coach on Dancing With the Stars, and Gabay had a part in last winter's movie version of Rent.
