2022 - 2023 Season

Dance Nation

By Clare Barron
Directed by Jessica Smith
October 13th-17th, 2022

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at Nationals in Tampa Bay. A play about ambition, growing up, and how to find our souls in the heat of it all.
