Visionary Dance Theatre celebrates its fifth anniversary season with a special performance showcasing internationally acclaimed choreographer Jeanne Travers, whose solo and collaborative projects have spanned the globe. For Travelogue, Jeanne Travers brings USF alumni together with Visionary dancers in an eclectic and energetic evening of dance.
