Decatur City Dance has been bringing dance stories to the people of Decatur and the surrounding communities for over 60 years. We are Decatur’s homegrown, local dance company. In 2015 Who Brought the Stories to the People? will expand your definition of dance: it incorporates stories from diverse cultures, utilizes different dance forms to tell stories, and features a narrative that connects the audience to the movement.
Two mythological characters, Anansi and Coyote battle for the role of story-master. Anansi is the spider spirit from West Africa and Coyote is the trickster of Native American lore. Using modern dance, ballet and tap, the teen companies of Decatur City Dance will bring these legends to life. And the audience will help answer the question: Who Brought the Stories to the People?
We need your support to bring the stories to the people of Decatur and the surrounding communities!
Tutus and pointe shoes, sizzling jazz, mesmerizing modern dance; syncopated tap dance rhythms, traditional and contemporary; original choreography, and long, rich history in the community; a healthy, nurturing environment for accomplished dancers, both adult professionals and teens...
