In a show that features more than 100 dancers with a variety of dance styles, you’ll probably find something to enjoy.
Work Dance Company is a nonprofit dance company that has been practicing for the last six months to produce Love Game. “We want to bring back raw honest dancing,” says director and choreographer Nate Boozer, and that’s true whether your cup of tea is ballet, modern, hip-hop or jazz/funk.
Boozer’s idea is to give the audience an honest expression of love. “When people think of love, they think of happiness and kisses. We are trying to describe the real parts of love and all of the emotions that come with it. It is a universal feeling,” Boozer says.
The show features technical and visual effects. “We stepped it up to make it a show. We’ve tried to add a little more theatrics to dance,” Boozer says.
Love Game begins at 7:30 pm TONIGHT at the Hult Center. $15.
Nate Boozer is Work Dance Company's director and choreographer.
