More than 400 dance lovers turned out on a Tuesday night and at the end of each piece, they shouted, clapped and even offered up some pleasurable moans. One of the dancers told me he’d never played to such an appreciative audience.
The opening piece of the second act – Caught – was one of the highlights. One male dancer and strobe lights created the visual image of a man in flight – always a foot off the floor. Breath-taking is the only word that describes it.
Here’s what a couple of folks said via email:
“Just wanted to let you know we LOVED the show last night…it was AMAZING. Oh to be limber young and talented. The dance with the strobe light was unbelievable …we talked about it the whole way home!”
“OMG! What a thrilling evening. I am still floating. Love being a part of the Palladium family!!”
And this one:
“WOW!! And again. That was outstanding. I’ll wager you fill the house if you bring them back sometime. Thank you for bringing such superb programming our way.”
Dance will be on our schedule next season as well. If you were there, please send me your comments. If you want to be a supporter of dance at the Palladium, you can write me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Special thanks to Sylvia Rushe, WEDU, Kahwa Coffee, and all the members of our Palladium Dance Committee for helping to make the night so special. – Paul
