When: May 27-29, 5:30 p.m. 2016
Dance St. Louis' Spring to Dance Festival is like Christmas morning for dance lovers, if only Christmas stretched across three nights. Each of those nights has ten companies from across the nation performing a new program with no overlap or repetition. Each night also has opening acts. You'll see everything from traditional West African dance (St. Louis' own Afriky Lolo) to high-flying aerialists (Aerial Dance Chicago) to the unique work of the Dancing Wheels Company, a Cleveland-based company that blends the talents of dancers with and without disabilities. Spring to Dance takes place at 5:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (May 27 to 29) at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri–St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; www.dancestlouis.org). Tickets are $10 to $20.
