Entry Points is a dynamic repertory dance performance featuring five individual dance works, four of which are premieres. Each piece draws on its own unique blend of styles, so audience members can expect to see glimpses of ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop, and improvisation throughout the show. Each dance is furthermore presented as an entry point for exploring a distinct idea: anxiety and overwork, distorted perceptions of reality, and identities in flux are a few of the topics investigated onstage. The movements range from soft to aggressive, from confined to traveling, and from solo to partnered. Audiences will feel entertained, mesmerized, and curious as they are pulled into each work in the intimate setting of the Link Auditorium’s upstairs ballroom. \ \ Entry Points was curated with diversity in mind – four of the seven choreographers identify as women of color: Maria Blanco and Yariana Baralt-Torres of LOUD BODIES (Chicago, IL), Victoria Lynn Awkward of VLA Dance (Boston, MA), and Emilia Sandoval of Ballet Memphis (Memphis, TN). The remaining choreographers are local and include David Marchant of Washington University and Holly Marchant of St. Louis University (St. Louis, MO), and Emily Haussler of RESILIENCE Dance Company (St. Louis). All choreographers bring unique identities and perspectives to the stage and share RDC’s passion for community engagement, social justice, and moving the dance world forward. \
