No, it’s not an Adele CD release party… it’s the 25th Anniversary of the Lisa Leizman Dance Company!

A resident company of the Northampton Center for the Arts, the group has chosen a special program to celebrate 25 years of dancing together. In a concert of works old and new, enjoy audience favorites All Blues, set to the classic Miles Davis tune, and some bird, perhaps with music by Arvo Part. This special   anniversary concert also features the first full performance of Instructions for When There’s a Mountain, written by company composer-in-residence Andrea Kwapien. Inspired by her travels to Southeast Asia, Kwapien’s score shimmers with the sounds of bells, bowls, kalimba and flute. And, following their decades-long tradition, the company invites the audience to linger after the concert for a bonus treat… a festive buffet dinner reception prepared by the company!
