This bridge will only take you halfway there
To those mysterious lands you long to see:
Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fairs
And moonlit woods where unicorns run free.
So come and walk awhile with me and share
The twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known.
But this bridge will only take you halfway there -
The last few steps you'll have to take alone.
- Shel Silverstein

Please make plans to join us for this exciting evening of expression through movement. Student dancers will perform the original works of eight *choreographers: all pieces created around the theme of "growing." This is our first dance production at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, and our first time curating a show specifically for our DancEast student performance groups: DancEast Company (ages 12-16), Ensemble (ages 10-13) and Workshop (ages 8-10). To punctuate the evening, five professional dance companies will present works of their choosing. DancEast is honored to host esteemed dancers from New Dialect, Blue Moves, Epiphany Dance Partners, Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville and Transit Dance Company as a part of this very special evening.
