27 years ago Adams Company Dance was on the first ever adjudicated bill of the American Dance Guild at the Cunningham Dance Studio. Now, ACD will again return to the festival with two talented new dancers, Payton Primer and Derick McKoy, Jr., performing “I Will Show You An Ocean,”  a passionate duet about the power of the human spirit. Both dancers have such impressive resumes, so be sure to check out their sites!

(A cast change was subsequently made for Mr McKoy; whereby, DaJuan Foley was added)

Dancer, Anna Levy, has been the acting rehearsal assistant and understudy to this duet. Her keen eye, and superlative skills in translation, have made the process of remounting this piece comfortable and efficient! Thank you to Anna!

See you there~
