Ohman Dancers to Return With Lively Autumn Performance

The aroma of pumpkin, apple and cinnamon spice fills the air as we transition from summer to winter. Long Island fall festivities are in full bloom heading into October. Games, food and live entertainment are all essential ingredients to these seasonal celebrations.

Students from the Frank Ohman School of Ballet will return to the Huntington Historical Society’s annual Apple Festival on Sunday, Oct, 14.

Ohman School of Ballet Company Manager Argere Loizides said that six young students from the Ohman School of Ballet’s Summer Intensive program will perform a dance choreographed especially for this event by  Ohmann. It’s set to a lively piece of music perfect for an autumn festival.

Former New York City Ballet soloist Frank Ohman is an internationally known dance professional who founded the school in 1979. The school is located in Commack and is a non-competition, non-recital academy focusing solely on proper classical ballet technique. Ohman is one of the few remaining direct links to the teaching of George Balanchine, known as the father of American Ballet and co-founder of the New York City Ballet.

The Frank Ohman School of Ballet has a long standing relationship with the Huntington Historical Society’s family events, such as the annual Sheep to Shawl Festival in May. For the upcoming Apple Festival, young students will perform an original dance to a piece set to music by Dmitri Shostakovich.
