This wild west themed dance showcase will transport the audience back to the early days of America’s westward expansion and explore this significant period of history.  A large cast of over 100 local performing artists will depict such important events as the California Gold Rush and the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad with dance pieces set to musical selections from this era as well as modern hits, encompassing nearly every style and genre and spanning over a century of songwriters.  Creative production numbers will honor the variety of different cultures that converged when America was young, and so greatly contributed to building the nation we know today.

“It’s crucial that we acknowledge the tragedies and celebrate the triumphs of our nation’s history. I am excited for this opportunity to bring to life the American West, using the arts to teach our dance students and the local community” says Director, Ashley Barnes.

An incredible set, designed by Director Ashley Barnes and Wilmington Artist Will Kinzie, will take this original dance production over the top. Manifest The West is sure to be the most unique local dance event this season and promises to be both enjoyable and educational for audience members of all ages.
