Jersey MovesJersey Moves!
Festival of Dance

WHEN: Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 PM
"The pieces on these programs may be flashy and grand, or quietly intimate. Some offer a dramatic narrative, while others are purely formal compositions. They may embody faith or sensuality, but all demonstrate the body's unique ability to reflect the human experience..."
— Robert Johnson, curator/Star-Ledger dance critic

The second part of this year's festival brings a diverse program of works from Timothy Kochka with The Davis Academy of Irish Dance, Bani Ray, New Jersey Tap Ensemble, Nimbus Dance Works, danceTactics performance group, and American Repertory Ballet.

Following each performance, ticket-holders are invited to stay for a moderated discussion with the evening's artistic directors.
