I think it's safe to say that this performance could be rated PG-13, so don't bring your underage children and conservitive grandparents. Other than that the costumes were insane, each dance and song had a different mood and essence to it. Dancers...continued

Great show. Interesting choreography and music. The venue was very cozy, although the seating could have been more comfortable (folding chairs) but it wasn't bad.

If I could I would request 1000% refund.
Total waste of everybody's time, dance floor usage, dancers' talent, gas to drive to the show, effort in dressing up for the event...
Thought it would be a treat for my mom who does not speak English yet,...continued

High energy performance that was perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Mr Joseph offered several distinct but overlapping thought-provoking pieces about racisms and racial identities. The mix of word, music and dance was good, but the emphasis, IMO was...continued

Love it. Love the piece where Daniel Phoenix Singh choreographed with a mystical story line with a blend of classical Indian Dance, modern dance and ballet. The after show Indian buffet was excellent too.

An extremely creative and original presentation of dance, poetry, spoken word and music. We hope this performer will return to the same venue again.

Saw a dance concert by Unevenlane, and they were fantastic! Great movement, original choreography, and a moving score to complement their dancing. Definitely recommend seeing that group next time they perform!

Although Dance Place is not conveniently located- free and easy parking and the intimate...continued
