Now in its third year, the American Dance Platform showcases some of the most captivating American companies performing today. This year’s festival, curated by Christine Tschida, Director of Northrop at the University of Minnesota, features an eclectic roster of eight companies appearing on four different programs.
This pairing explores rhythm and includes Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater, performing flamenco and folkloric dance from Spain, and the hard-driving, percussive power of Trinity Irish Dance Company.
