Art Walk: Braided Light Dance Project and Tour FT
Braided Light Dance Project and Jacksonville Dance Theatre are proud to come together to present Jacksonville with a free evening of professional dance! During ArtWalk August 7th these leading Jacksonville based dance companies will transform the space under the marquee of the Florida Theatre into an up close and personal performance experience. This is a unique opportunity for the community to get to know these companies and witness the choreographic voice of various professional artists from right here on the First Coast.
Braided Light Dance Project strives to challenge the typical approach to presenting dance. Our mission is to expand the boundaries of movement by creating a whole new kind of relationship between performers and spectator. We celebrate the art of movement through site specific performances, artistic collaboration, community involvement and quality modern dance. Through non-traditional venues, our extreme athleticism, and the unique voices of many local choreographers and artists we are able to bring our audience an experience unlike any other.
Located in Jacksonville Florida, Jacksonville Dance Theatre is a contemporary dance and performance company dedicated to creating and promoting excellence in the field of professional dance on local, national and international stages. Jacksonville Dance Theatre’s ultimate goal is to draw artistic collaborators to Jacksonville, bring commercial traffic to downtown, and create an increasingly educated and healthy community through artistic and educational efforts.
Also, we will have our Tour FT program! Join us for a behind the scenes, historic tour of the Florida Theatre- tour times are 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm
