The selected staged works will be performed at The Southern Theater August 11-13, 2022, and screen works, selected in collaboration with Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema, will be shown in October in partnership with an awesome yet-to-be-announced film organization.
| PERFORMANCE & EDUCATION: OUTREACH |
We’ll bring our unique groove, interaction and improvisation-driven approach to jazz dance TO YOU! We are experienced in tailoring virtual, outdoor and in-person events and workshops to the needs of a community. Recent favorites include an outdoor performance for Ebenezer Ridges assisted living facility in Burnsville MN, a virtual appearance with “The Treehouse,” one of Children’s Hospital MN’s original, closed-circuit TV programs they make special for their kiddos, and a virtual teaching residency for Marcy Open Elementary in Minneapolis! If you’ve got a senior living facility, educational institution/ group, community organization/ festival, fellow artists or any other group of people you think would benefit from experiencing a jazz dance show, drop us a line!
| EDUCATION: MOVETOGETHERS |
‘MoveTogethers’ are our weekly company class of sorts, titled as such to reflect their collaborative nature in which we improvise and create TOGETHER in addition to moving through material from RS Artistic and Executive Director Erinn Liebhard. We are excited to be opening our MoveTogethers up to the public so pre-professional and professional dancers in our community can JOIN IN THE JAZZ! This first session of open MoveTogethers will run Wednesdays from 5:30-7pm at the Cowles Center in downtown Minneapolis, starting 5/25/22 and ending 8/3/22. Each class is $15.00, which can be paid in cash or via Venmo after taking class. TC dancers, we hope to see you there!
