Here's the latest in the series, written by Sharon Viles. She attended a performance of The Missouri Contemporary Ballet and was impressed by Columbia having its very own dance company. After meeting the Artistic Director, Karen Grundy, and her dancers, she decided to get involved. She is a member of its board of directors.
Q: What artistic project or product are you excited about?
A: I am excited about Missouri Contemporary Ballet's upcoming performance "Connectivity" on March 8th and 9th.
Q: Why are you excited, and why might other people be interested?
A: This show is an artistic collaborative performance with Island Moving Company, a contemporary ballet company from Newport, RI.
