When Ballet Dancers Go Flyingâ€”with a Little Fairy Dust
What does it take for dancers to fly? The members of Nashville Ballet are currently finding out. Artistic director Paul Vasterling has built a whole new production of Peter Pan from scratch, and brought in performance flight experts ZFX to install a system in the company’s warehouse that lets him choreograph movement in the air.

The dancers will bring Neverland to life with their new mid-air tricks this weekend, Oct. 18–20, at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.
