The Dance Project presents My Favorite Things featuring guest artists: Reverence Dance Project, Andrea Torres Dance Company and Juxtapose Arts Collective, June 22 – 24 in Rollins Studio Theatre.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…
The Dance Project presents My Favorite Things, a celebration of hopes and dreams forming a revival of dance in its true form. This show presents a musical journey through life’s happy occurrences and beautiful moments.
My Favorite Things offers artists the chance to declare their own favorites and explain why they are so special to them.
We are excited to welcome Reverence Dance Project, Andrea Torres Dance Company and Juxtapose Arts Collective as guest performers for the show.
Reverence Dance Project (RDP) was founded by Quinton Weathers and Dane Burch in 2011. Their goal is to bring together well rounded artists, and to create a positive environment where all members can expand their passion for the art of dance. The company’s vision is to not only bring their work to the stage, but to also capture dance on film. RDP bases their artistic creations from the talent of each member in the company, resulting in equal contribution of thoughts, visions, and works to each dance performance.
The Andrea Torres Dance Company has multiple performances a year where part of the proceeds go to The Lymphoma Research Foundation. The company strives to provide audience members with an emotional experience they will never forget.
Juxtapose Arts Collective is an organization in the greater Houston area founded by local dancers and choreographers. At its core, Juxtapose is a multimedia dance theatre comprised of artists in residence, guest artists, and an educational apprenticeship program, Juxtapose II. It operates in affiliation with The Royal Academy of Fine Arts to bring together artists of all walks of life; dancers, musicians, actors, painters, photographers, and filmmakers unite to present new and unique work to the ever expanding arts community of Houston. The Collective strives to “provide unique opportunities for local artists to unite and create work for the Houston community as well as promote young dancers and choreographers on their way to working professionally.
“My Favorite Things is a journey for our artists through subject matters that are deeply personal and reflective in nature. The show reveals more than just raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. There is an entire world out there that affects us in a personal and meaningful way.”
