Upspring Studio’s Nutterween!

Sunday, December 8th at 6 pm

In this (slightly) deranged (new) annual aerial tradition, UpSpring explores what would happen if the Nutcracker took place on Halloween. Zombies, snow ghosts, and sea monsters dance and dangle from the ceiling. Does it make any sense? No! And that’s why we love it!

Tickets: $10 (limited early); $17 advance, $20 door, $15 senior/student. Click here.

Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 6:00pm.

Location: Bowie Center for the Performing Arts.

From ballet, jazz, hip hop, to step, tap and liturgical, this emotionally gripping piece has left audiences speechless. Only 1 performance, so don’t miss your chance to see it.

Tickets: $15.

Throughout innovative choreography, aerial work and theater, VF Dance Theater is excited to show its new work about how memories—even the hard ones—can keep the ones we love alive. Based on a true story, the show raises awareness for Breast cancer using the arts. However it is not about Death, but It’s about how a strong spirit can never really be extinguished. It’s about a family coping, healing, and moving forward. In conjunction with a book that was written with the show “Balou the Comforter” the company hopes to offer HOPE and healing to those battling with cancer and their loved ones.
