Join Kanopy Dance for our 2018-2019 performances, which all feature celebrations — some tied to holidays and seasons, some simply expressing joy. And isn’t that what great dance is about? Translating emotions into movement that is more meaningful than words. Dance is naturally part of the rituals that mark the passage of time on the calendar — and the festivals that commemorate beginnings and endings, important milestones, change and growth. So celebrate with Kanopy throughout the year, as we create revels of all kinds onstage at Overture Center for the Arts.
