Coming April 18 the "Art of Movement" returns to Columbia Center for the Arts.
There will be two performances at 4 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 18.
This year will feature Columbia Gorge Dance Academy's Company Dancers performing works by choreographers Theresa Mason and Nancy Clement, Charlotte Arnold as well as new choreography by Susan Sorensen.
Also performing will be Joy Dancer's Hip Hop Company, BBoyz Break Dancers and from Cami Curtis Performing Art Center in Portland, the dance troupe Eclectic.
All dances were created by local dancers/choreographers from the academy.
This year Art of Movement is proud to present special guests from Portland; A-WOL Dance Collective.
A-WOL will be performing its latest work: 3-6-9: 9 choreographers, 6 minute pieces, 3 dancers at a time.
This will be an evening of high class movement featuring the works of nine guest choreographers.
Summoning talents from Portland, Los Angeles, Arizona, and San Francisco, each work brings with it the freshness of new minds working together. As a performing company A-WOL seeks to liberate audiences from traditional ideas of what it means to dance. They ignite a wonder and curiosity for what can happen when the human body takes flight.
Through challenging the scope of human capability, A-WOL will give you something to dream for. Believing that art should be accessible to everyone, A-WOL is not afraid to pluck its work from behind the theatre curtain, and pursue its audiences by popping up in a variety of unexpected locations.
Tickets are $10 for students and seniors and $12 for adults and are available at Columbia Center for the Arts or online at www.columbiaarts.org.
