Great Performances

  This Past Season . . . 

What a fun Great Performance Season! It was a bit shot due to the forced cancellation of our third public performance originally scheduled for April 24, 2020. But we look forward to the opportunity to reschedule Tango Del Cielo during our upcoming performance season. 


This past series began with the talented artists of Ballet Victoria from British Columbia Canada bringing "Ballet Rocks" to life at the Jones Theatre on Saturday, November 9, 2019. The performance brought a new definition to Ballet. Our audience loved the innovative choreography mixed with modern moves. Following such positive feedback, we are already working behind the season to bring these talented professionals back to the Palouse.


                                                                                                          On February 22, 2020, in a Saturday matinee performance, we packed the house with audience members of all ages! Rainbow Dance Theatre brought the magical performance"ILumiDance" which proved to be a huge crowd pleaser! The artists even took the time for a post-show reveal of their secrets!

   . . . and looking toward the future

We anticipate that there may be some changes in the planned lineup for the 2020-21 Great Performance series due to COVID-19, but at this time we are still working on bringing the exceptionally talented 

CLEO PARKER ROBINSON 

dance company from Denver Colorado in early November. 


In December THE NUTCRACKER.

 students from our own Academy of Dance will perform alongside 

a guest professional ballet company at the Beasley Coliseum. 


Next spring will greet us with the rescheduled performance of Tango Del Cielo.
