Best of 2015: Performing Arts Group/Program

Thanks to autocorrect, my not-so-smartphone turned "Ormao" Dance Company into "Lmao" Dance Company. Though Laughing-My-Ass-Off Dance Company has a pleasing ring to it, the name Ormao (pronounced or-MY-oh) actually references a Greek term meaning "to set in rapid motion, stir up, incite, urge on." That definition fits the innovative dance organization, which offers professional and youth performances, public classes for all ages in modern, hip-hop, ballet, tap and yoga, and even "Mathtastic," a unique program that teaches math skills through movement. This weekend (Oct. 23-25) in addition to its Indy win, the group will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with a special fall concert. — Jill Thomas
