On Friday night May 5th a dress rehearsal will be free and open for dancers and dance students only as an industry night opportunity for new and seasoned artists to experience the show for free. New co-artistic directors Ann Shaughnessy and Bobbi Foudree, former dancers of the company, are presenting both new and previously presented works along with the choreography of company members Victoria Knox, Liat Roth, and Jordan Wilson. This season the company features two returning dancers: Alyssa Gaede and Jordan WIlson, and four new performing artists: Emily Dillman, Jadelyn Ransom, Victoria Knox, and Liat Roth.
The theme "Matters of the Heart" encapsulates underlying inspirations of the very different pieces presented including family, sibling rivalry, choosing a new path, hurt, hope and perseverance, and the rise and fall of life's happenings, and will be expressed in the styles of modern, contemporary, and aerial dance. Join us as we present "Matters of the Heart".
Lastly, a special guest performance by the Youth Dance Theater will present their work on a professional stage. Stay tuned for additional details.
