Swerve: a sudden change of direction 

Dance as an art form progresses through innovations and changes of direction, both sudden and gradual. Hosted by Festival Artistic Director Damian Woetzel, UpClose features dramatic “swerves” in the history of dance as shown through the works that have led this art form forward. This program features Festival stars in rehearsal and performance mode as they take on groundbreaking choreography from across centuries of dance styles from ballet and modern dance, to street styles, tap, and ballroom.

Generously underwritten by Jeffrey Byrne & Rosalind Reed.

Casting and repertory are subject to change.
