Family Ties 

Who Are We? What Do We Stand For?  A full-length performance brings to life our personal connection to where we are today

Date:  Saturday, June 15, 2019

Time:  7 pm

Location:   Doris Humphrey Memorial Theater at the Academy of Movement and Music

      605 Lake Street, Oak Park, IL  60302

Tickets: $15 will be available online closer to the performance

In this current political climate, it makes us think about who we are, what we stand for, and how we came to be this way. Our families have instilled strong values in us that we may hold tight to or distance ourselves from. Family ties can be tight and solid, keeping us together, or messy and knotted. Either way, we are connected and it helps us establish the kinds of people we are today.

GRIT Dance is a dance collective that celebrates diversity in age, race, size, music and styles of dance. This performance is produced by CHOREOSPACE.

Create. Collaborate. Emerge.
