Sometimes people think dance shows are just for kids, but not so! Benita Bike’s DanceArt has spent decades introducing the world of dance to adults, seniors, and children by presenting concert dance in a unique interactive dance programs in community sites. Have you ever wondered how dances are created? How do dancers magically change ideas into the movement that expresses mood, image, and story? These questions and more will be answered on March 3rd. The Company will perform dances and audience members will have numerous opportunities to ask questions and talk with the artists about dancing.
The company will perform “Pushing Time,” a quintet that pulses dramatically across the stage to the sounds of modern organ music, “In the Garden,” bringing an ancient garden to life with the sounds of the night and Finnish vocal music, and excerpts from the Company’s newest dance.
