ARC Dance presents Summer Dance at The Center
ARC DANCE ANNUAL JULY PROGRAM AT SEATTLE CENTER
ARC Dance returns to the beautiful setting of the Bagley Wright/Leo K. Theatre for its second dazzling season of Summer Dance at the Center July 16-18
Known for its strong, versatile dancers and its varied contemporary repertoire, ARC Dance features four world premiers by choreographers Penny Hutchinson (Mark Morris Dance Group), Marie Chong (Artistic Director), Betsy Cooper
(Resident Choreographer), and Kirk Midtskog in a July 16-18 program at Seattle Center's Leo K. Theatre. Also on the bill is a work by California-based choreographer, Mark Haines, which ARC premiered at Meany Hall in 2004.
"Based on the success of our summer season at the lovely Leo K. Theatre last July, we wanted to make the concerts an annual event." said Artistic Director Marie Chong. "The Bagley Wright/Leo K. is a perfect fit for ARC Dance, and we
are pleased to be back in the space; it's a beautiful, intimate theater that lends itself to our current repertoire." added Chong.
The use of the Bagley Wright/Leo K. Theatre as its home venue is very much in keeping with ARC's forward momentum approach--even during these stressed economic times. ARC has engaged 10 dancers for a 32-week contract involving
more mixed rep and other concerts throughout the 2009/2010 season.
The confluence of experienced choreographers expressing their unique "voices" and the collaborative contribution of strong, well-trained professional dancers makes for compelling dance performances. "There is always something that draws you in." is one of the most stated sentiments at an ARC Dance performance.
