"Heart/Beat: Gospel, Brubeck and Rhythms of the City" is currently running at the Atlanta Ballet until Feb. 15.

The performance is in three movements. The first, "Elemental Brubeck," is choreographed by Lar Lubovitch, to music by Dave Brubeck. Then, "Tuplet" is the jazz-inflected bustle of the city, with choreography by Alexander Ekman.

"On Second Thought" hears a sample of music from "Heart/Beat: Gospel, Brubeck & Rhythms of the City," currently running at the Atlanta Ballet until Feb. 15.

And finally, "Sunrise Divine," featuring arrangements of traditional gospel tunes and originals by Dr. Kevin Johnson, and performed by members of the Spelman College Glee Club and Lydia Pace of Atlanta's own gospel singers, The Anointed Pace Sisters. This final movement is choreographed by Dwight Rhoden.
