Dance returns to the Alliance for the Arts with the revival of Dance Alliance, the organization's resident dance company. Composed of six area dancers, the company is scheduled to host two 2010 concerts in On Jan. 30 and 31, Valarie Green /Dance Entropy, a New York based modern dance company, will share the stage with the Dance Alliance to present a program designed to encourage and showcase creative movement.
Their performance has been described by the Village Voice as, "Articulate, fearless, intelligent dancing." Following the Dance Entropy performances, audiences will be treated to a "sneak peak" of Dance Alliance's Season Concert.
Feb. 27 and 28, Dance Alliance will perform its first annual Season Concert displaying new works created by local movement artists. Featured pieces will celebrate choreographer and dance teacher Cynthia Arenillas of Merce Cunningham and Paul Taylor Dance Companies.
As the resident dance company of the Alliance for the Arts, Dance Alliance's mission is to inspire our community through the art of dance. As a collaborative group, all members contribute to the repertoire and bring their unique backgrounds to each piece.
Tickets are on sale for both concerts: $18 for adults, $12 for students, $30 for both concerts. Call (239) 939-2787 or go on line at www.artinlee.org. Group rates are available.
