The WWCC Dance Program invites the community to a free behind-the-scenes program with Dance Faculty Britta Joy Peterson and the guest artists of SPRING: Desert Dance Theatre 2016. “SEE-THRU – Movement Speaks: conversations about dance,” will be held Thursday, April 21, at 10 a.m. in the WWCC Theatre. The community is invited to attend this informative program and learn more about the practice and creation of dance as a collaborative art form.
Participating guest artists in this 10 a.m. program include: professional dancers Léla Groom, of New York, Kim Lusk, of Washington, Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal, of New York, and Juan ‘Coel’ Rodriguez, of Arizona; professional musicians Austen Mack, Garrett Johnson, and Robin Vining, all of Arizona, and professional lighting designer Evan Anderson, of Washington.
These artists will join Peterson and her students in providing a glimpse through the curtain at the processes that produce a concert like “SPRING.” "SEE-THRU" serves as a primer for this year's Desert Dance Theatre production, which takes the stage Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night at 7:30 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, April 23. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students and seniors, and may be purchased at http://wwcc.tix.com
No children under 5 will be admitted to evening performances; however, all ages are welcome to attend the 2 p.m. Saturday matinee.
