National Dance Week is April 24 through May 3. So why not celebrate the end of National Dance Week by going to a dance show. Bend Dance Project presents Kaleidoscope on May 2 at 7pm at Mountain View High School.
Bend Dance Project is a nonprofit organization that promotes all styles of dance. As part of its mission, Bend Dance Project sponsors four dance companies with Kaleidoscope featuring these four dance companies.
Jazz Dance Collective is the original dance company sponsored by Bend Dance Project. This all-adult jazz dance group is under the artistic direction of Gail Bartley.
Dee Dee Burzynski is the artistic director of Ubiquitous Dance Company, a contemporary ballet dance company comprised of students from various dance studios in Bend.
Velocity Dance Theatre is broken into two dance groups under the artistic direction of Alesa Terry: the original young adult group and a younger student group.
The final group in Bend Dance Project is Central Oregon Rhythm Project. This all-adult tap dance company, under the artistic direction of Kelsey Leonard, is the newest group to join Bend Dance Project.
You don’t have to go to Portland to see original dance pieces choreographed by local choreographers and performed by youth and adult dancers from the Central Oregon dance community.
