I write a lot about free music and movies and some about plays and art exhibits, but it’s not very often I get to write about free dance performances. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten to write about a free dance performance, which is incredibly sad to me.
I don’t know much (or anything at all) about dancing, but I have incredible respect for good dramatic dance. I’m not talking Dancing with the Stars crap or really weird and boring interpretive dancing that you might see at a high school talent show, what I like to see is people seriously getting their dance on in a way that blows my mind.
Tonight at 7pm at the Frist Center Company Rose is putting on a free dance performance as part of the Impressionist exhibit that just opened. The dancers are going to use some of the same motifs that many of the painters used, and are in general going to perform something inspired by Impressionism. I don’t know what to expect, so I’ll just put the official event description behind the cut. I imagine whatever happens will be fun. And hey, if you’re a college student you can check out the exhibit for just $5 after 5pm! Score!
