Kansas City Dance Season Closes with Enticing Performances
The 2014-2015 Kansas City dance season is winding down, but the coming months continue to offer an array of high-caliber dance performances. This past season featured many plot-based balletic works, but the finale performances concentrate primarily on non-narrative pieces, highlighting movement, choreographic invention and performance ingenuity.
Legendary modern choreographer and teacher Martha Graham once said, “We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance.”
