Making Dances Across State Lines & "Euphoria/Dysphoria"

XPOSE Dance Theater Co. is excited to perform in the highly anticipated, upcoming dance production of "Euphoria/Dysphoria", presented by Shannon J. Smith. Through this participation, XPOSE DTC began the exploration of a new venture! It is an experimental choreographic process executed by dancers and choreographer in separate spaces. Dancers are working out of a studio in Pasadena, CA, while the choreographer is located in Northwest Florida. It involves rehearsing, teaching choreography, creating movement, putting together a dance performance piece via Laptops and FaceTime! It is a process that involves collaboration and input from both ends of the dancer/choreographer relationship and the dance-making spectrum. This new yet exciting process for XPOSE DTC has presented itself with challenges, technical difficulties, aesthetic boundaries, teaching and learning limitation yet has also opened so many more possibilities of future dance making opportunities and methods to continue forth with the XPOSE Dance Theater Co. purpose, regardless of distance and space. See how this piece unfolds and what transpires from our venture, utilizing technology and the internet to continue creating art! The piece, "Will Love With Urgency", music by Mumford & Sons, to the song "No More Haste" will makes its debut on the weekend of May 24-26th @ The Lounge Theater in Hollywood, California as a part of the Dance Production, "Euphoria/Dysphoria" presented by Shannon J. Smith. Check out www.shannonjanetsmith.com, to learn more about "Euphoria/Dysphoria", and www.brownpapertickets.com to purchase your tickets!

Body of Work

"...the one thing I know about a body of work is that it's never finished. It's cumulative; it deepens and expands with each day that you give your best, each day that you give back and contribute to the life of your community...You may have setbacks, and you may have failures, but you're not done -- you're not even getting started, not by a long shot." - Barack Obama
