Partners from Boston’s dance community explore connections between music, movement, and wellbeing. Ellington’s “river ballet” portrays a human life, flowing from its source to the ocean beyond. Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances rock and sway with unbounded vitality, in the composer’s final orchestral work.
