Program B: Big Range Austin Dance Festival 2012
Dance Carousel- An Austin Favorite!
40 dances in 40 minutes. .
This dance sampler is the best way an audience can be introduced to modern dance and the massively diverse dance artistry in the Austin community. The show is for dance-lovers and novices alike, for folks who love absurd humor and the subtle gestures of dance, for the short attention span and for those who enjoy watching the all the abstract parts of a dance becoming whole.

Big Range Austin is a only annually curated contemporary dance festival in Austin that strives to present quality contemporary dance exploring diverse concepts within the movement arts. We encourage experimentation from choreographers to stretch their own ideas of dance, collaboration, and performance excellence. We seek to engage the audience through fresh new ideas that are challenging and fun, with a strong emphasis on community building through each individual voice. Big Range Austin is facilitated through Spank Dance and is a sister festival to Big Range Houston, founded in 2003 in part by Suchu Dance Company. Spank Dance encourages the growth and collaboration of the contemporary dance communities in Central Texas by bridging ideas, people, and diverse artistic expression.
--This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from The Texas Commission On The Arts and The City of Austin through the cultural arts division believing an investment in the arts is an investment in Austin's future. This and all project are also funded from private donations.
