2016-2017 Season Reperatoire
Xclaim's ninth season premiere finds muse in the wacky whimsical and wise words of Dr. Seuss.
In collaboration with the artists of Iron City Aerial, the company serves up fresh works in cirque-style intricately intertwined with our signature jazz fusion choreography! Don't miss this unique and diverse performance...a thrill to delight audiences of all ages! Choreography by Artistic Director Mariah Layne French & veteran Dancer / Choreographers: Caroline Bramlage, J. Shannon Filmore, Chelsea Miles, Mary Negley & Laura Schoessler. Featuring ICA Co-Directors Jenly Deiter and Xclaim Alum / Cirque de Soleil Acrobat Kelsey Keller!

Artists of Xclaim & special guest choreographers come together to create an emotive and uplifting collection of new work. Spirituals touches on history and turmoil while dancing a soulful narrative about overcoming hardship and injustice. A timely new favorite. Choreography by Xclaim Artistic Director Mariah Layne French, company veterans J.Shannon Filmore & Kevin Bailey, special guest choreographers Daryse Osborne and Frederick Ocansey, beautifully woven together with live song by Diane Ransom.
