Dance Alliance, the Alliance for the Arts’ resident dance company, is celebrating its third season with an ambitious program fusing dance, live music and spoken word. Two performances will be held in the Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts on Saturday, April 20th and Sunday, April 21st at 8:00 p.m.

 

The eight-member company is teaming up with Vocal Artistry, a premiere local choral group, to perform excerpts of Karl Jenkins’ “Requiem,” a series of thought-provoking melodies that blend the concept of a traditional Latin Mass with Japanese haiku poems. The company also welcomes guest performer Dr. Jim Brock, a poet and Florida Gulf Coast University professor, whose rhythmic and musical verses serve as the inspiration for Dance Alliance choreographers. Guest choreographer Donna K. Frogge reunites with Dance Alliance for the second time, bringing her interpretation of the Biblical tale of the Tower of Babel to the Alliance stage.

 

Performances begin at 8:00 p.m. on both nights and are followed by a reception. A $10 donation is suggested; seating is general admission. Email leedancealliance@gmail.com or call 239-939-2787 for more information.

 

ABOUT THE COMPANY: Dance Alliance offers a blend of modern and classically-inspired dance. The company operates as a dance cooperative, with each member sharing her own style and vision with her colleagues. The company is striving to expand the art of dance in Southwest Florida and to provide area dancers with a venue for their continued artistic growth.
