Light in Spring will feature a group work for the entire Company, choreographed by Winifred Haun. Dancers will perform the work around the many spaces, in its balconies, stairways, pedestals, dais, and main floor. The work features an original improvisational score played live by Berwyn composer and musician Barry Bennett.

This event will include a solo, “Bench” choreographed by venerable 80-year-old choreographer, Lonny Gordon. Mr. Gordon created “Bench”, especially for Company Dancer and graduate of Maywood Fine Arts, Myles Harris.
