    During our time together, we have a tradition of creating an “Instant Dance” in which participants build a dance together, created collaboratively while guided and directed by a choreographer. This is an opportunity for us to create and dance together in the same piece, choreographed on the spot! Instant dance will rehearse after the master class on Saturday, Feb. 10. Anyone who is interested in participating in the Instadance is welcome! Participation is not required but highly encouraged! Instadance will perform in the Saturday evening show.

Concerts: Feb. 9 and 10, 2024 at 7:30 p.m.
