Polaris Dance Theatre presents Groovin’ Greenhouse, a program filled with World Premiere dance works focused on bringing the Portland dance community together. This show provides a platform for established and emerging Portland dance companies and choreographers to present their work or works-in-progress alongside one another in Polaris Dance Theatre’s intimate Black Box theatre. Each performance date will include work by one or more of Polaris Dance Theatre’s companies including the Polaris Company, ELa FaLa Collective, and Polaris Junior Company + NEO Youth Company. The Polaris Company and ELa FaLa Collective will present World Premiere works that will run throughout Groovin’ Greenhouse. Robert Guitron, Artistic Director and Choreographer for Polaris Dance Theatre will create a dynamic, athletic and whimsical never-before-seen piece. ELa FaLa Collective, under the direction of Brazilian born dancer-choreographer, Barbara Lima, will make their big launch as an all-female company. The Collective seeks to create bridges between art, technology, culture, education and science, through a holistic vision of the world. Vitality Dance Collective presents Depiction, a 4-piece work that defines separate styles of dance – Ballet, Modern, Modern Jazz and Contemporary. The piece will be danced by Emily Tunstall-Frack, Emily Rose Vincent, Kelsey Mahoney-Watson, Kristina York and Sabrena O’Day. The Ballet section will be choreographed by Emily Tunstall-Frack with music by Bortex, the Modern section will be choreographed by Kimberlee Kind with music by Tracy Chapman, the Modern Jazz section will be choreographed by Sabrena O’day with music by Kenny G, and the Contemporary section will be choreographed by Kelsey Mahoney-Watson with music by Broods.
