Parsons Dance Company Performs at Kean University

UNION, N.J. ––Parsons Dance Company will bring a sampling of its repertory of exuberant, athletic, exciting and provocative choreographic masterpieces to the Wilkins Theatre at Kean University on Friday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m.

David Parsons, the company founder, is one of the most beloved and inspiring choreographers in the world. He recently won a Dance Magazine 2000 Award for satisfying “a public hungry for not just entertainment, but for imagination, beauty, innovation and enlightenment.” His company has received public funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts since 1989. It has also been featured on PBS; cable networks Bravo and A&E Television, The Discovery Channel; and stages around the world to rave reviews. “David Parsons is the master of nearly everything that can be learned about modern dance: its potential for stylistic variety, athletic excitement, sexy glamour and technological novelty,” wrote Lewis Segal of the Los Angeles Times.

Wilkins Theatre is located at 1000 Morris Avenue in Union, N.J. Tickets are $25 for the general public; $21 for seniors; and $17 for children. For more information or to reserve tickets, call 908-737-SHOW (7469). Black-and-white and color images are available upon request.
