Ready to see some dance? don’t tell me the last time you saw a modern-contemporary dance performance was back in college in your art appreciation class?  Oh where or where do our audiences go?  Somehow, dance seems to be the least attended of the art forms unless you are a dancer yourself or you happen to live with one. Lets break that paradigm! Come support 7 amazingly talented choreographers and their collaborators from the Latin@ diaspora at Mission Cultural Center September 25-27, join the panel discussion at CIIS on Sept. 19 and take some low-cost master classes during Latin American History Month with incredible teachers .  ~~~Allow yourself to move and be moved~~~~~  Contact us about bringing your students for a discounted group rate.

*Get your PRE-SALE TICKETS until Sept. 1st.* Prices go up in 2 weeks!* For all details about our SHOW, FREE PANEL DISCUSSION and our FLACC Friday’s TEACHING SERIES in September. See www.flaccdanza.org

“Broken” 10 minute solo

“Broken” is traversing the landscape of a fragmented Piñata with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, ADHD, OCD, depression and a good dose of Dharma wisdom. With a multi-media video and dance performance, “Broken” dissects the nature of impermanence, life and tissue paper.
