Curious about METdance?
The company is a leader in the Houston dance community – and has been offering formal instruction and performance in the city since 1995. The company is the sister organization to the METdance Center, a top-notch dance facility located in the Midtown district.
The public is invited to see the dance company first hand – and try a class – during METconnect, slated for 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26.
A free performance is scheduled for 5 p.m. The studio is located at 2808 Caroline (at Dennis) in Houston, 77004.
This semi-regular event will allow individuals a chance to take a block of dance classes, serving a full range of ages and genres, at the low price of $5 per session.
Space is limited – and participants must pre-register online at www.metdance.org/met-connect.
“This is a great opportunity to explore dance in a fun, affordable way,” METdance artistic director Marlana Doyle said. “We hope the community signs up to learn more about what we’re all about.”
METdance pursues a mission to educate and revitalize a passion for dance through world-class instruction and performance. The company has traveled across the U.S., impressing critics and audiences alike while performing works by some of the most influential and talented choreographers in dance.
METdance also has a strong community outreach program, including its educational “Swing, Jive, Pop” performances. The shows incorporate history, fashion, music and the arts, while the company dances through the eras of the 1930s Lindy Hop, bops into the 1950s, grooves into the 1970s and ends with the Hip Hop music of today.
The company’s home base, the METdance Center, now serves as Houston’s second-largest dance training space, offering comprehensive training in multiple disciplines to students of all experience levels, ages 3 and up.
