INTERTWINED: A New Kind of Dance Show

Intertwined – a dance show for the 21st century – will be presented at Centrepointe Studio Theatre on November 28 (showtime is 7:30pm). Intertwined will feature the choreographic works of Tressa Wilson and Claire Berry – local choreographers who are inspired by contemporary dance movement, while honouring the traditions of jazz and classical ballet. The evening will include multiple and very different dance styles, performed by Connect Dance and Exordium Dance Collective. The dancers take to the stage in several interpretations of contemporary movement: some classically inspired, others more primal and pedestrian.

Wilson and Berry trained as dancers in Ottawa before continuing their training abroad.  They now work as dance teachers and choreographers and share the common goal of growing the professional dance community in Ottawa. Their shared vision inspired them to collaborate on a performance that would showcase their choreographic material, as well as feature Ottawa-based dancers.

An open rehearsal will be held at The Nectar Centre, 255 Mackay Street from 4:00-4:30pm on November 23. To find out more, visit www.ccdo.org and www.exordiumcollective.com
