“There’s more information in one minute of dance by Doug Varone than most choreographers manage to squeeze into far lengthier works.”

– The Boston Herald

Known for its extraordinary humanistic, versatile and virtuoso works, Doug Varone and Dancers is celebrating its 30th anniversary. A much sought after director, Varone is known for his work for opera, theater, dance, and film, which has appeared on stages worldwide earning him a Guggenheim Fellowship, an OBIE Award, and three Doris Duke Awards.

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlotrocks

“The Trocks are a guaranteed hoot for people who know nothing of ballet and an absolute must for those who think they know the originals.”

– The Sydney Star Observer

March 8-12, 2017

For a night of uproarious fun, lots of laughter and great send-ups of classical ballet, no one can top the Trocks. These men in tutus and pointe shoes have technique, and can they dance. Of course it all depends on whether or not the diva prima ballerina consents to perform. This show is great for the entire family.

Her work is astoundingly beautiful and emotionally moving. The program features all-new work including Thousand Yard Stare, a moving tribute to military veterans, and Her Door to the Sky based on the art of Georgia O’Keeffe. The power of dance to communicate raw feeling is never so evident.
