Saturday, April 28, at 7 p.m., Dance Theatre Northwest, a regional performing company, will present a free spring concert at Tacoma Narrows Glen (8201 Sixth Ave., Tacoma). Excerpts from their latest repertoire, which includes pieces from the “Authentic Voices” show recently presented at the Tacoma Museum of Glass, are on the lineup. Classical and contemporary ballet, Broadway-style jazz, and tap dance will be presented. Featured performers include Katherine Neumann, Oceana Thunder, Neil Alexander, Emma Young, and Phoebe Holland.
With the intent of serving the community through the art of dance, Dance Theatre Northwest has created innovative community partnerships and collaborations with numerous organizations in the community. The company reaches thousands of children and seniors each year through its Arts Are Education and Art Inspires Art programs.
DTNW Director Melanie Kirk-Stauffer and the company have been recognized widely for their contributions and have been funded continually to produce special events. Only last year, DTNW was recognized by the City of University Place for “30 years of artistic excellence and outstanding service to the community.” DTNW has also received multiple awards for cultural diversity and artistic excellence. Dance Theatre Northwest has also received recognition from the Pierce County Arts Commission with the Margaret K. Williams Arts Award in 1998, from Dance Magazine, and from Access Broadway of New York.
