2013/2014 Season Performances

Dance connects us!

Hello! What a privilege to welcome you to this 58th season of amazing dance and performing arts in the heart of Fort Wayne. We are delighted to have your company as we continue traditions and explore new opportunities that expose and share the benefits of the arts in this community.

We are northern Indiana’s oldest and one of the nation’s most revered dance organizations; and with that honor comes the opportunity and the duty to help as many as possible understand the relevance of dance as education and as entertainment.

At its core, dance is the intersection of mind, body and spirit. We see it every day: parents who dance with their babies, toddlers who dance to their own rhythm, teens who muster the courage for prom, seniors who’ve learned to dance like no one is watching. We all dance through life, stopping at that intersection for a minute or a day, accepting the invitation to be part of something bigger than ourselves. Together we are joining creativity and community in a way that proves what we’re born knowing: dance connects us.

This season, our popular Family Series: Fables, Folk & Fairytales continues with a magical mix of old and new stories to enlighten and enrich — and to connect each of us as only dance can do. This continues to be the essence of our mission as we connect with you and within this community, whether you are connecting with us from your seat or in class. You’re in for a fabulous, rewarding experience.

Special thanks to our arts funders: Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne, Indiana Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, and to our season sponsors, partners and advertisers. Together, we are connecting creativity and community in a way that proves “dance connects us.”.
