the BareFoot Collective Brings Free Dance to Tacoma

5 Nov

For its second season, the BareFoot Collective is taking dance out of the theater and sharing it with the public through free performances of Autumn Dances all around Tacoma this November.

The BareFoot Collective dancers are working with several local choreographers, including dancers from PLU, Spectrum Dance Theater and MetroArts, to program 30 – 40 minute line-ups of innovative modern dance including improvisation, contemporary, dance-theatre, and hip-hop works to share with audiences in these non-traditional performance spaces.

“The BareFoot Collective has been creating opportunities for dance in Tacoma since 2008.  We are thrilled to partner with local businesses this fall and bring dance to the people where they are.  Tacomans will not have to go to the theater and buy a ticket to see dance this November – the BareFoot Collective is steppin’ out!,”  says co-director Katie Stricker.
