You’ve seen them dance. Now see their emerging choreographic voices in the first dancer-choreographed show in our new facility. These bi-annual experiments are casual, less adorned raw productions that give our company dancers an opportunity to try their hand at creating movement. A great way to get to know another side of our dancers.

Artistic Direction by Catherine Hayward
Choreographed by DJD Company dancers
Performed by the DJD Dancers to recorded music
