Dance performances will encompass classical ballet, modern, contemporary jazz, and ballroom styles, and approximately 30 dancers will perform in the 60-minute show.
The show’s performances span from a historic icon’s tale to musings on relationships, and from a parlor-style jaunt to a ritualistic gathering, portraying diversity in both dance and music.
Audience members are encouraged to stay for refreshments and a ‘meet and greet’ with dancers following the showcase.
