Dance Collective

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Why do we dance? Because there is nothing in the world quite like it. It is often athletic. Sometimes it is lyrical or percussive, at other times powerful and moody, or joyful, exuberant, introspective or heartrending. It can be done alone or as part of a unique communal experience. Dance evokes feeling and captures and projects the full spectrum of emotion often without words and it transcends race, language, orientation, age, and gender, speaking to us in a way we all instinctively understand.

The primary goal of putting together this dance concert is to bring the vast array of choreographers and dancers from all over Hilo to one stage to dialog and share with each another, as well as with the audience, the gift of their talents and passions. By sharing in their love of dance as well as their mutual desire to create bridges within the community, everyone involved will benefit. Movement discoveries will be made, new friendships will occur and the foundations for dance will strengthen and increase over time.

This first annual dance concert is the stepping stone to what will hopefully become an enriching and educational experience for participants and audience members alike. Showcasing young and upcoming choreographers and dancers as well as established performers from Center Stage Dance Alliance, Island Dance Academy, N2 Dance, and the UH Hilo Dance department to name but a few, this one night only show will feature a range of dance styles displaying the dynamic skill and creativity of our dance collective.

The proceeds from this event will go toward providing dance opportunities for our island community and perpetuating this event.
