Ambitious, Enchanting, Exquisite, Must see, Masterful

See it if You appreciate romantic, beautiful, masterfully executed dance addressing a somber relevant theme

Don't see it if You believe man's buildings are more important than nature and you do not enjoy modern dance

Absorbing, Enchanting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great dancing

See it if you are a butterfly and dance lover of any age and you care about the future of our planet.

Don't see it if if you'd rather eat a butterfly than watch them fly

Theatre is Easy
August 21st, 2016

"A dual sense of doom and joy fills 'The Dance of Life'...It requires a quiet patience...Thematically the show is quite poignant...Framing the cause as a continental phenomenon, rather than based in a particular nation-state, serves as a powerful reminder that we collectively share the world and the responsibility to protect it. The essential and unwavering harmony of biodiversity, communicated through the powerful grace of this cast of dancers, is 'The Dance of Life.'"
