DAS Showcase 2022

We are very proud to bring you our 2nd ever DAS Showcase! Our Showcase events are intended to share more of our solo and small group pieces from throughout the year, and to help us get back in the dancing mood for the upcoming season! You can expect to see some group pieces that were performed in our June Show CATHARSIS, as well as some solo and duet works from our brand-new 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:
