Abesque Variations’ originality lifts spirits
By Angie Goettsch
Abesque, meaning light and airy, does not
apply only to Arabian horses. The term also
can be used to describe dance and music.
That’s why the Schemikaus decided to call
their new shop Abesque Variations.
Originally a studio for voice and piano
lessons, Abesque Variations, 701 P St., has
expanded to include a boutique which features
music, horse and dance items.
“Many people wanted to take voice and
piano lessons. The space was available, and
with the positive response to the studio, we
were happy to also provide specialty items to
customers,” Marty Schemikau said. She and
her husband, Burt Schemikau, are co-owners.
Abesque Variations has been open since
the second week of July.
“The response has been wonderful,” Marty
said. “With a dance studio across the hall
(Dancerschool), it seemed like the perfect idea.
People come from all over for the fitness
clothes, jazz, tap and ballet items. Lots of
people just like to be fit.”
The Schemikaus are happy with the shop’s
location in the Haymarket.
“This just seemed to be the place for us,” she
said. “We love the Haymarket, the variety of

This just seemed to be the
place for us. ”

people and the city atmosphere. We wouldn’t
want to be anywhere else.”
They also had little trouble coming up with
a name for the studio.
“We owned the Abesque Arabian Horse
Training Center in Lincoln for about 20 years,
so people can relate to the name,” Marty said.
Their past business experience is also evi
dent in their new venture. Posters, paintings
and clothing pertaining to horses are sprinkled
throughout the shop.
“This part of the boutique is real ly stressed,”
Schcmikau said, “It is hard to find horse
clothing and gifts in Lincoln.”
But not all items in the store deal with
music, dance and horses. Stationery, figurines,
T-shirts and jewelry are scattered from wall to
“We also have seasonal items,” she said.
“Right now we are featuring many nutcrack
ers, because the M idwest Ballet performs “The
Nutcracker” every year for Christmas. Aside
from the standard nutcrackers, we also sell
German musical nutcrackers which are hand
carved from wood.
“We sell some consigned items, too, like
postcards, prints, incense and earrings. Most
of them are based on the music, dance and
horse theme of the store.”
Schcmikau also said that Michigan Rags,a
lineofunisex apparel, would be featured in the
“I think this type of clothing will spark the
interest of students. I don’t think they really
know about us yet,” Schcmikau said.
Although Abesque Variations is available
for everyone to visit, the studio is booked.
“Burt’s schedule is really full,” she said. “If
you want to take lessons, I would suggest
getting your name on a waiting list.”
