Awaken Dance Theater’s Spring Gala

May 19th at 8:00pm

At the New York City Center Studios


The goal of Awaken Dance Theater, which had its first studio showing in early 2014, is to make bold statements on social and political issues through dance. Using a variety of styles and techniques, we want to inspire the audience and community at large to think more about the topics being presented, and to take action if they are so inspired.

This gala will be the the World Premiere of a new classical piece and will feature a performance of a brand new jazz piece by Awaken Dance Theater's first ever guest choreographer and company member Brianna Anderson!

We will also be performing numerous pieces, including On Words and Leaders, Mother Earth: An Exploration in Climate Change, and previewing a solo from our new work Seven Last Words, which features live music in collaboration with world-renowned pianist Tanya Gabrielian.

The company has 10 stellar dancers, that come from all over the world, including the USA, Japan, Canada, Colombia, and France, and have trained at such prestigious academies as the Ailey School, Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet, and the Joffrey Ballet.
