LIMITLESS POSSIBILITIES AT DANCE BALTIMORE'S AGELESS GRACE
Dancers Over 40 Once Again Inspire Audiences in Annual Concert
Ageless Grace, the annual concert presented by Dance Baltimore that features performances by dancers in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s, will be staged at the Creative Alliance at The Patterson, 3134 Eastern Avenue on Sunday, May 7, 2017, in two shows, 4pm and 7pm. This year, performing tap, modern, bellydance, Polynesian, Latin, jazz, and more, senior companies will include solo, duet and ensemble performances.
In a discipline filled with young, flexible dancers, it isn't often that seniors have the opportunity to take to the stage and offer their own expressions through movement. Leg extensions may not be as high as they used to be and lunges not as deep as their younger counterparts but the senior dancers stand on solid ground with deep emotion and vast experience guiding their performance, evident in every step on stage. Dancers in this year's Ageless Grace production are both former professional dancers as well as "community" dancers who perform in more recreational forms.
Performing soloists and ensembles include: Antonia (jazz), Diedre Dawkins (modern) Branch Morgan (modern), Meki's Tamure Polynesian Dance Group, CJay Philip (Broadway) Tapsicore (tap), Leslie Ebert (modern), Cedric Teamer & Sheena Black (Casino de Rueda Baltimore/Afro Caribbean Salsa), Delaware's Itinerant Dance Theatre (comedic dance) and more.
