Columbus Dance Theatre

“Our audiences love this concert,” says Veach.  “It is always a big hit.  I think people enjoy the ‘behind the scenes’ look into how a choreographer creates a dance.  There is also an element of danger and unpredictability.  Nobody really knows what is going to happen. That is the fun of it.  As ever, we are committed to live music as part of this presentation and are thrilled to have Bradley Sowash joining us at the piano for this one of kind performance experience.”

Individual Tickets: $30 Adults - $25 Seniors - $15 Students
