"In Our Element" is an exciting new show about the elements of water, earth, air and fire that will premiere July 8th, 2017. This contemporary dance performance will feature three new works choreographed by director, Jeana Klevene that will include live original music and aerial/circus artists performing on silks, lollipop, aerial cube and aerial pole. The wind element is being created through two large fans donated by Big Ass Solutions. The thrill of fire will be introduced through fire hooping and a fire fan artist and a water wall and shallow pool is being engineered to bring water right on stage!
This performance event will also provide opportunity for participants of our Inclusive Dance Outreach program and Adaptive Dance class to perform on stage with our professional company or to attend the performance for free with a parent or guardian. This is an important part of our mission, both in getting to share the joy of performing with our outreach participants and seeing them shine on stage, but also for our community to get to experience this kind of inclusion in the arts and to see the direct impact come to life right before their eyes. Despite Lexington's enthusiasm for the arts, there are very limited opportunities for children with special needs to engage- especially for those from low-to-moderate income households. Allegro Dance Project fills that gap by providing free dance outreach for the most under-served children in our community as well as providing high quality dance performance events at Lexington's Lyric Theatre.
