This week, Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre explores themes from Greek antiquity where gods fall out of olive trees and Icarus falls from the sky with two works by resident choreographers Tara Lee and Heath Gill.

The program “Modern Myths” will mark the first time students from the Terminus School of Modern Ballet will share the stage with the company’s professional dancers.

John Welker, the director and co-founder of Terminus Ballet, joined host Lois Reitzes on “City Lights” to discuss the program.

“Under the Olive Tree” and “Horizons” will be performed March 6 and 7 at the Kennesaw State University Dance Theatre.
