Inspired by a range of personal  and poetic subjects and set to music from Arvo Part Kronos String Quartet.  Sunday's performance will be at 2pm. Our work is impressionistic in nature. It is lovely to watch and is best appreciated if audience members allow the experience to wash over them without trying to 'figure it out'. This is not story ballet or hip-hop funk. It is mysterious at times, breathtaking at others and has appeal for the whole family.  Come closer.  Join us. And we will show you something beautiful. Choreographers include:  Nolan Hoppe-Leonard, Tara Reiter, Eli Madsen, Cassandra Howlet and Artistic Director, Nolan Dennet. Tickets for students are $6, $10 for the general public.
