Top 3 Reasons to See the 23-24 Dance Series

3 Nights. 3 Companies. 3 Styles.

1. Exceptional Artistry

Our Dance Series Season is a celebration of exceptional artistry, where visionaries come together to create unforgettable moments on stage. This season features world-renowned choreographers and artistic directors that are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of dance, exploring new territories, and transforming the world through dance.

For CONTRA-TIEMPO, it’s their uncompromisingly radical approach to the ways in which artists function within communities and create their work. The company intentionally engages diverse audiences, cultivates dancer leaders, and centers stories not traditionally heard on the concert stage, using its engagement process to inform and continuously re-fuel its creative process, and vice-versa.


2. Captivating Performances

Our carefully curated season showcases a diverse range of dance styles, from classical ballet to contemporary expressions and everything in between. Each meticulously crafted performance tells a unique story, weaving together emotion, rhythm, and grace to create an immersive experience that will leave an indelible impression on your heart and mind.

Celebrating their 50th year in 2024, Les Ballets Trockadero De Monte Carlo keeps audiences captivated through their loving knowledge of dance, their comic approach and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces. It is a Company of professional male dancers performing the full range of the classical ballet and modern dance repertoire. The comedy is achieved by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance.
