Join us for the first installment of the dance series dedicated to celebrating the 100th birthday of Newport News's own, Pearl Bailey. The conceptual focus of this night of dance is the ruby. With its vibrant crimson hue, choreographers, Liza Smith and Janneice Haughton were challenged with imagining a performance centered around the precious stone. We are very excited to present their creation in honor of our own hidden gem, Pearl.
"Our evening is in three acts: power, red and love.
In addition to dance, we have singers, spoken word and the Heritage Jazz band performing. To close the last act, we are using some of Pearl Baileys songs to depict the lifecycle of a relationship from crush, to courting, to love and the break up."
The tickets are $10 and can be purchased below.
