So, Anyway...

Turning the stage into its living room, Born Dancing will premiere So, Anyway... a new one-act show about getting off the couch, getting our dance on, and sharing small talk, big talks, painful conversations, and a few laughs. The work is set to music by Kenyan folk singer Ondara and will feature live musical accompaniment under the direction of Eric Finland.

Show run time is approximately 1 hour with no intermission. Saturday evening's performance will be followed by a reception for all at Ailey Studios.
