Peterson Dancers 18th Season in Miami

Karen Peterson’s Dance Troupe presents “Future Memories” at the Excello dance space in April and then travel to Montenegro in May to perform at the Montenegrin National Theatre and teach at the youth disability center in the capital, Podgorica. This is the second part on a Miami / Montenegro Cultural Exchange Project that began with performances by the Ballo Dance Company in Miami in October 2007.

Ms. Peterson’s three wheelchair and four non- wheelchair dancers will premier “Future Memories”, a multi-media work that finds an intimate connection between her dancers and Ms. Peterson’s immediate family. Through the inspiration of home videos, sing-a-long songs, family arguments and finger painting, Ms. Peterson finds the struggles, passion and support of the family similar to that of her dance company.

The four performances will take place on:
Friday, April 25th at 8 PM
Saturday, April 26th at 4PM and at 8 PM
Sunday April 27th at 4 PM
Dance Artists include: John Beauregard, Shawn Buller, Marjorie Burnett, Enid Harum - Alvarez, Erin St. John, Carol Kaminsky, Jennifer Smallwood, Jessica Pusceddu

During the first week of May, Peterson will produce “the 5th Emerging Choreographers Showcase” a venue for local and national young choreographers. Now in its fifth year, the series has provided 30 talented dance makers with an intimate venue to display their work.
