to see this one night only performance.
*Friday, March 9 at 8pm*
Presented in the 2016 Fringe Festival, *GALA* is a spectacle where the act
of dancing, or the act of trying to dance, is celebrated, *GALA* showcases
the desire to dance without complexes.
About twenty dancers take the stage, from professional dancers to first
timers—including children, teenagers, pensioners, people with disabilities.
Interpreting a series of dances across a range of eras, their performances
reveal each person’s desire to move, to strive for joy, perfection, to
transform with unabashed expression. With a simple framework, like an end
of year assembly, audiences become deeply connected to the individuals on
stage, their dance revealing a world of their own imagination.
*This discount can also be used to see Grammy winning vocal
ensemble, Roomful of Teeth

Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to reimagining
the expressive potential of the human voice. Through study with masters
from vocal traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble continually
