Event Details

Beacon Dance will present the premier of a new work, Decades, the weekend of October 4 & 5, 2019, as part of The B Complex 20th Anniversary Celebration Exhibition and Performance event. Decades draws inspiration from numerous resources, including the various musical periods from the late 1910’s through 2019, fashion trends over the 100 years from 1919 through 2019, and dance/movement styles and trends throughout the 10 decades.

Choreographed by Artistic Director D. Patton White, it will bring together these three passions of his—costume design, social dance, and music from numerous time periods. This world premiere work will feature dancers familiar to Beacon’s audiences as well as newer faces to the Atlanta community. The piece will conclude with the sale of costume pieces worn during the performance and from the Beacon costume stock, and White will offer brief social dance lessons in some of the dance styles for a post-performance dance party for all in attendance.

This event is Free and open to the public!
