Inspire is a concert dance celebration hosted by Gwinnett Ballet Theatre.  The performance is packed with concert style pieces performed by local dance groups and choreographers.  Special recognition is given to young choreographers ages 13 to 19.  Artistic Director, Lori Zamzow-Wire created the Inspire showcase as a special training exercise designed to provide motivation and choreography experience to aspiring dancers and choreographers.  From a single classroom performance, Inspire has grown into a multi-studio production that displays choreography and movement from both upcoming choreographers and seasoned professionals in Gwinnett County and the Atlanta metro area.  The Inspire mission is to promote the art of choreography through instruction, experience and example.
