Newton Moraes Dance Theatre performs Sunday Jan 17th at 5:10pm during #danceweekend16.

Newton Moraes Dance Theatre will perform TESTOSTERONE—excerpt Testosterone envisaged by Brazilian born Moraes is uniquely collaborative. Within this theatrical laboratory, the dancers move beyond socially expected responses to the pressing issues of sexual politics, playfully expressing the myriad kinetic possibilities of hybrid humanity in a post-gender world.

City Dance Corps is excited to perform a brand new collaboration with Spanish singer/songwriter Celia Palli.  The piece entitled, "DUETS" will feature 3 of her original songs and 1 ColdPlay cover.   We are also excited to announce choreography by Christopher Knowles.  Check out more at
