This exciting performance marks the return of 14 of Ririe-Woodbury’s most distinguished alumni dancers to a Company production.

This year, Ririe-Woodbury presents the outstanding choreographic talents of these alumni, all well-respected artists and educators throughout the country. Among the choreography are four commissioned works by John Allen, Jillian Harris, Stephanie Nugent, and Patrick Damon Rago.

The run is presented in two different programs, one Thursday and Saturday evening, and the other Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.

Choreographers Thursday and Saturday evening include Juan Carlos Claudio, Jill Voorhees Edwards, Jillian Harris, Keith Johnson, Stevan Novakovich, Stephanie Nugent, and Doris Trujillo.

Choreographers Friday evening and Saturday afternoon include John Allen, Chia-Chi Chian, Juan Carlos Claudio, Aaron Draper, Patrick Damon Rago, Emmy Thomson, Andy Vaca and Prentice Whitlow.
