In a dazzling display of aerial artistry, the award-winning W&L Repertory Dance Company will swoop, spin and flip along the walls of Wilson Hall, May 15&16 @ 5:30pm in Lexington, Va.
This playful look at dance features works choreographed and performed by students using aerial rope & harness. Broadway rigging company ZFX will see to the safety of the dancers and the seamless cable transitions. This concert happens only once every four years and builds on a legacy established in 2009 by incorporating music, props and new daring technique and artistry.
W&L is at the foreground of the national discussion on aerial dance education. Artistic Director and Dance Professor Jenefer Davies has published and lectured internationally on her specially designed technique classes that prepare dancers for the rigors of aerial work.
