Star Dixon & Megan Davis Present Choreography @ PERSIST: Tap Dance Made By Women

15d5016a-924d-46a2-9866-6a16701457ad

TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY
May 26th & 27th @ 8pm

In an art form where women have played second fiddle to men time and again for decades (and in light of a recent surge in women’s movements of all kinds) PERSIST celebrates the unique, varied, artistic voices of six female choreographers including world premiere works by Kristi Burris, Megan Davis, and Patti Vickerman alongside returning audience favorites including Star Dixon’s critically acclaimed Ultralight Beam. From driving, pulsating rhythms to delicate, hopeful gestures, PERSIST promises to be another stunning example of Chicago tap dance excellence.

Choreography by: Krisi Burris, Megan Davis, Jenna Deidel, Star Dixon, Kendra Jorstad & Patti Vickerman
