You can expect to see some group pieces that were performed in our June Show DANCING FREE, as well as some solo and duet works from our one-of-a-kind Path to Performance program. We are also introducing Works in Progress as an opportunity for our dancers to perform pieces that aren’t quite finished so they can gain audience feedback to help inform the creative process! This event is an interactive, informative experience where audience members are invited to ask questions and give feedback during the show. Join us for a pleasant evening visiting with the performers, sharing in their process, and checking out our registration options for the Fall! Read more for event details and ticket sales:
