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!

As anticipated there are some changes in the planned lineup for the 2020-21 Great Performance series due to COVID-19. At this time we are still working on bringing a spacious, select-seating, in-person performance of 

Tango Del Cielo 

International Ballroom 

Friday, February 12 

 7 PM


We are also working toward presenting the exceptionally talented 

CLEO PARKER ROBINSON Dance Ensemble 

from Denver Colorado in an "up-close and personal" virtual performance.


Please check back for more developments.


A Nutcracker performance will not be possible this season.

We look forward to future partnerships with professional dancers in a live performance
