Support them as they present their newest and greatest works from their repertoire.
This 2pm Show in our Dance Festival is called: "Beginnings"
Please be aware there are two separate shows on the same date but different times with different artists. There is a later show at 8pm that called: "Awakenings"; hence the title of our festival: "AWAKENINGS & BEGINNINGS Dance Festival".
A new extension of our festival includes an educational facet:
A special work by Michael Nickerson-Rossi, Artistic Director of Nickerson-Rossi Dance Theater! Michael is a master craftsman and has put an amazing piece on Noelle's alma mater: Moorpark College's Dance Department's dance program students.
