Collections is an annual performance hosted by Authentic: Grooves. Bringing the community together and eliminating preconceived notions about dance is at the heart of every Authentic: Grooves event.
This dynamic evening of dance will showcase live musicians, six Authentic: Grooves repertory performances, guest dance companies, pre-professional students and youth performers. The evening will culminate in a fun and uplifting collaborative piece with Authentic: Grooves and guest artists.
Live-Stream Engineer, Authentic: Creations, adapts the theater experience to provide a unique live-streaming option allowing us to reach our audiences wherever they are.
We support artists with the space and resources to share their work and build strong relationships within the dance network. We can’t wait to share this exciting range of work with you!
Create ~ Collaborate ~ Connect,
That’s what we are all about!
