Before Black Swan the movie, there was Odile: The Dark Swan. Local theatrical dance company, Windsor Dance eXperience Inc., remounts their production, Odile, originally staged in the summer 2005. Inspired by the classic ballet, Swan Lake, it is a tale of dark magic, forbidden love, and corruptive nature of jealousy told entirely through movement. With an eclectic fusing of various styles such as jazz, ballet, modern, and hip-hop, Odile explores new territory beyond the conventional boundaries of dance.

“We love exploring fairytales, popular literary works, and classical ballet, in a new light. Taking something that people have heard or seen so many times and putting our own twist on it. Really challenge their assumptions of what these stories are about. I think it gives our young dancers [ages 12-32] a powerful voice when they can discover similarities between these famous characters and their own lives”.
Artistic Director, Tiffany C. Wentzell.
