Dig Dance: Deliciously Alternative Classics 10/19 & 10/20 @ 8pm
The 1960s produced dancers walking down buildings and doing the twist, but it also produced classic dances that ripped the field. Several of those will be seen on this ballet and modern dance program, where ballet and modern dances complement each other, including Aureole, 1961, Taylor; the newly revived Gamelan (solo and trio), 1963, Arpino; the newly revived Party Mix, 1963, Taylor; and Viva Vivaldi (excerpts), 1965, Arpino.
