Nimbus Dance Works' Jersey City Spring Season
Don't miss this exceptional show featuring Nimbus' world-class dancers bringing to life dances by acclaimed choreographers with influences from around the world! Kicking off on June 9, 2011 with an Opening Night Celebration, these performances highlight an array of dance works by renowned choreographers from four distinct cultural traditions: Pedro Ruiz, Zhang Xiao-xiong, Jean Paul Jr., and Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott.

Nimbus, hailed as "sophisticated and engaging" and "astonishing in its understated intensity" (The Star-Ledger), presents a world premiere by Latin choreographer Ruiz, showcasing the sophisticated grace of the Cuban "Danz√≥n" style. The flowing, martial-art-inspired movements of Zhang's "Butterfly Dream" bring to Jersey City a piece that thrilled audiences when it was performed last summer at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival. Paul Jr.'s "Priye Ginen" highlights Nimbus' dancers' thrilling intensity as they push their physical limits to a percussive Haitian score. The program is rounded out by the Nimbus company premiere of  Pott's poignant and historically insightful "Bloodlines 1944." This quintessentially American work conjures up the year 1944 through a montage of memory and fantasy in the mind of a World War II soldier at sea in the Pacific. Thursday night's performance also features students from Nimbus' JC Grooves after-school dance program at Middle School #4.

Also on Thursday night, join us for an Opening Night Celebration immediately following the performance, featuring an elegant champagne reception on the stage. Honoring Grace Church Van Vorst and Nimbus dancer Michelle de Fremery for the contributions they have made to the arts in New Jersey, this reception will give attendees an opportunity to meet Nimbus dancers and other dance lovers in Jersey City. This celebration will be an elegant and festive experience!
