Youth participants will have the chance to choreograph original work, with 1 piece being selected to present alongside the professional works during Modern Night this year.

All guests are invited to our after-show reception at Vine St. Brewing, Missouri's First & Only Black-Owned Brewery at 2010 Vine Street. Reception is free and starts at 9pm, light appetizers will be provided, guests are responsible for beverage purchases.

This concert builds upon City in Motion’s mission; to foster the development of high-quality, contemporary dance programming in our metropolitan area.  Since 1985, City in Motion has provided opportunities for local choreographers to present their works through this original Choreographers’ showcase.
