Support the local arts and have a great time all at once.
METdance is kicking off its 23rdseason with the annual Midtown Mixer fundraiser. The one-night-only event will feature food, drinks, silent auction and of course dance. Tickets are $40 per person. The fun is slated for 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 2808 Caroline.
The nonprofit’s new season, “Better Together,” will highlight the company’s dynamic work as an ensemble, focusing on the themes of connection, collaboration and partnership.
METdance has excited, inspired, and educated audiences through its unique blend of contemporary concert dance performances and community outreach for more than 20 years.
The organization 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 older.
