Winifred Haun & Dancers
Winifred Haun & Dancers
Winifred Haun & Dancers is a professional modern dance company and presenter-led by award-winning choreographer and dancer, Winifred Haun. Founded in 1991 in Chicago, the Company has created, presented, and produced over 125 original dance works, including one full-length ballet, commissioned 32 original musical scores, and participated in over 270 public performances and events.
These custom choreographed performances were inspired by Unity Temple. UTRF is thrilled to be partnering with Winifred Haun & Dancers for this one-of-a-kind event!
The first half of the performance will be an immersive experience walking throughout the space. Audience members who need less walking/stairs will be accommodated.
Winifred Haun & Dancers will lead a children’s workshop inspired by the performance at Unity Temple. Child dancers will participate in the program (parents of children’s workshop dancers tickets $15, use coupon code: PARENT). For details and registration contact firstname.lastname@example.org
