Past Event

Four Choreographers – Four Companies – Four World Premieres! An innovative festival of contemporary and modern dance.

We’re back for our sixth festival of contemporary and modern dance. Carlsen Center Presents hires four choreographers to create original works for four local dance companies. Each new work will premiere on the Yardley Hall stage, then will be owned by the dance company for two years for use in their own programs.


This year the collaborative partners are:

  • The Kansas City Ballet working with Myles Thatcher, San Francisco Ballet
  • Owen/Cox Dance Group working with Gregory Dolbashian, founder/artistic director, The Dash Ensemble
  • Störling Dance Theatre working with Catherine Meredith, independent choreographer
  • Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company working with Frank Chaves, founder and former artistic director, River North Dance Company (Chicago)
