We are honored to have a long partnership with Newman Center for the Performing Arts who for many years has arranged for dance companies performing works in their season to provide guest artists to work with DSA Dancers. In The Studio this month will be Black Grace.
Black Grace will be performing at Newman Center April 5. With their distinctive dynamism sparked by Samoan and New Zealand heritage, the Black Grace dancers take possession of the stage—and own the audience—from the first moment. And they never let go. Eloquent yet elemental, athletic yet spiritual, they mix their cultural heritage with the contemporary choreography of Artistic Director Neil Ieremia to conquer the stage. Expect a highly physical performance, rich in the storytelling traditions of the South Pacific and expressed with raw power, unique beauty, and finesse. DSA Dancers and their families are offered $15 tickets (with free parking) to the performances by visiting newmantix.com/promo and entering the code DSA15TIX.
