Show & Tell

Thursday, May 18 at 4:00pm

Join us for Show & Tell, an opportunity for artists to share their dance works with the community. The choreographers are invited to participate in a quick open response directly following the performance of their work with our guest artist leading the audience in discussion. You dance, we watch. We dance, you watch, and we’ll all talk about what we experienced together!
