Truth Be Told

about the show

Momentum celebrates Chinese culture in this year’s production of Truth Be Told: A Chinese Folktale. Momentum teaching artists and accompanists engage more than 1,000 central Ohio children in dance, music, and performance during their weekly, in-school Momentum classes. The school year will culminate in four grand, hour-long performances given by Momentum dancers.

All Momentum performances are free and open to the public. Tickets are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis 30 minutes prior to each showtime in the Davidson Theatre.

  • “Momentum has been my happy place.”

    —Asha, Momentum Dancer
  • “I learned from taking Momentum that if you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything. I thought Momentum was so hard. But then I started to believe in myself, and it became easier. Then the next thing you know, I was onstage performing in front of 1,000 people.”

    —Abe, Momentum Dancer
  • “Everyone is a star in their own way, and that means you can do anything you put your mind to if you try.”

    —Evangee, Momentum Dancer
