Summer Showcase 1: Red Ribbons & Memories Dance Concert Performance
Summer Showcase 1:
Red Ribbons & Memories Dance Concert Performance
Join us for an intimate & yet epic evening of dance, film, and live music, as we present to you two programs:
A collage of dance pieces that embodies the theme of memories choreographed by many known artists in the dance community.
Noelle Andressen (Rubans Rouges Dance Company), Wendi Baity (Relentless Dance Theatre), Nancy Evans Doede (Nancy Evans Dance Theatre), Amanda Hart (Hart Pulse Dance Company), Misa Kelly (ArtBark International & New Traditions Foundation), Beth Megill (Beth Megill & Company), along with amazing emerging artists: Kim & Jay Castillo, Kirby Harrell, and Heather Smith (Rubans Rouges Dance Company).
Based on "The Dance" that started Rubans Rouges Dance Company, the long awaited, full concert version of "RED RIBBONS" will finally be presented as intended in its completed and uncensored form.

Please use discretion as this dance performance delves into mature and controversial subject matters. This performance may not be suitable for children under 13, nor suitable for children under 13 unattended by adults. Parental discretion is strongly advised.

This initial 4 minute, stand-alone dance piece was a labor of love, dedication, and would serve as a message and a tool that to this date (as having been performed as a stand-alone dance) has set many women free from abuse and gave them a voice of courage to speak up.
Her long awaited goal has now finally come to fruition and she proudly presents to you her complete, uncensored, personal story.
When asked by one of her dancers, "Why now? What made you decide to do this now?"
Noelle replied, "It is time..."
