Springfield Dance Artists: Art on the Square will feature professional quality dance and choreography in two special evenings of contemporary movement, design, and celebration. Inspired by the historic theater’s location in Springfield’s central square, the performances will explore dance’s changing role through the ages, showcasing works that range from classical to cutting-edge, from global art movements to Springfield’s own rich cultural history. The journey will be brought to life through multimedia presentations and choreographer interviews, original visual art and set design, and will culminate in a post-concert Q & A with the cast.
A Gala Celebration will follow Friday’s opening night performance in the lobby of the Historic Fox Theatre, offering a silent auction, special performances and previews, and small bites and drinks for our patrons. Donations to Springfield Dance Alliance, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, will go toward funding our 2015/2016 season and are fully tax deductible.
