Like a string quintet, the dancers of Benita Bike’s DanceArt perform with uncommon sensitivity to one another, bringing intense beauty and vibrancy to each delicately crafted, expressive movement. The company’s work is known for its elegant performance, dramatic use of space and gesture to make sensitive observations on life. Benita Bike’s choreography stands at the crossroads of past and present, blending the music and sensibilities of the past with evocative contemporary movement. For 30 seasons this company has performed near and far – from the California coast to New England and abroad – bringing both concert dance and unique interactive outreach performances to audiences large and small. The 2011-2012 season marks the 31st season for Benita Bike's DanceArt.
