Lustig Dance Theatre (LDT) is a group of expressive, opinionated, and passionate movers. Every dancer has had a unique journey to earn their place as a professional company member.  Though the dancers are unalike in many ways, there is one thing they each have in common—a hunger for beauty through expression. LDT is more than a job for them, it’s a home; a facility where they can grow and learn about who they are as artists, and in turn, share their creativity.

PIECESOF10 is a benefit performance organized and marketed strictly by the dancers themselves, in hopes of raising support for their company. It’s also a chance for returning (and new) audience members to know the dancers in a more personal manor. Viewers will see a total of seven pieces including a dance film, the culmination of the ten company members’ collaborative efforts.

With only three weeks to create, rehearse and market, each dancer has been on an accelerated track.  Stepping into new roles by choreographing on themselves and others has been a rare opportunity for them to learn something new from their fellow artists. Not only have they had the responsibility of creating new work, but they have also been challenged to handle the production elements of the performance.  A lot of time and creative energy have been spent and cultivated over the past few weeks, resulting in an expansive experience in which they are excited to share with the public.

Awaken your love of dance!
