Gravity is no match for Diavolo Dance Theater's daredevils of dance as they leap, fly and spin with power, elegance and a thrill of danger in their acclaimed work Transit Space. Influenced by the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, this kinetic, high-flying work explores themes of loss and community while using skate ramps and half-pipes as set pieces to represent an urban environment. Led by Artistic Director Jacques Heim, Diavolo's an internationally renowned modern dance company of dancers, gymnasts, acrobats and athletes. Learn More

The New World Flamenco Festival has ordered up a big new show that will be rehearsed in Spain and presented in its world premiere. _Somos Flamencos _celebrates flamenco’s most treasured traditions of improvisation and spontaneity among its dancers, singers and guitarists. Yaelisa, the Festival’s artistic director, is guest-directing this extraordinary ensemble of Spain’s top dancers, musicians and singers.
In response to some of its other original shows – Jerez, Puro; _Sin Fronteras _starring Savion Glover; and _Y Una Batita de Cola _- the Festival has been asked to represent this show on a national tour during the 2009-2010 season. The run has been extended to five nights of vibrant dance, majestic cante, and soulful guitar.
