2015-2016 Schedule

2015-2016 Season Reperatoire "EIGHT"
In honor of Xclaim's eighth season, 5-6-7-8, the company dives into dancing old works with fresh feet. From African Inspired movement to Aerial Dance, this show is not to be missed! The eclectic retrospective is a compilation featuring restaged crowd favorites with choreography by Artistic Director, Mariah Layne French & veteran dancer / choreographers: J. Shannon Filmore, Kelsey Keller and Laura Schoessler.

Dancity-Doo & Story Time Too! features dynamic dancing paired with excerpts of Dr. Seuss books read aloud. Through energetic new choreography, this story time-meets-dance production will explore a range of themes and emotions found in such Seuss classics as Oh, the Places You'll Go!, Horton Hears a Who!, and Fox in Socks. We invite your whole family to join us as we debut excerpts of company works in progress.
As Seuss wrote, "A person's a person, no matter how small."

* This season was made possible through project support grants from:
The Greater Columbus Arts Council / The Ohio Arts Council
A matching grant through the Puffin Foundation and the City of Columbus
Along with generous contributions from Charisma Centre for the Arts and patrons like you.
