on April 15, 2016
On April 17, the Oakland Ballet Company will be hosting the second annual East Bay Dances Showcase. This showcase is meant to highlight the diversity of artistry and dance in the East Bay.
The event will feature multiple dance groups from the East Bay including Oakland Ballet, AXIS Dance Company, Diablo Ballet, Jubilee American Dance Theatre, The Milissa Payne Project, Patty Chu’s Chinese Folk Dance, Quicksilver Dance, and Savage Jazz Dance Company.
Graham Lustig, the show’s producer and artistic director of the Oakland Ballet Company, said that he believes it’s important to recognize the wide variety of dance performance that originates in the East Bay. “My intention is that people will have a new appreciation for the diversity of dance that exists and thrives in the East Bay. They’ll have a sense of the creative genius that’s around us, that’s bubbling in the ferment of the city,” Lustig said.
