Forty + is a group of performers past the age of 40. Forty+ dancers meet weekly with a local contemporary choreographer to develop a work for performance. The repertory for Forty+ is maintained year round, and performances frequently take place at centers serving older adults. Forty+ is open to people of all physical facility, at any age, regardless of previous experience in the performing arts. Enjoy the expressive, rehabilitative, and restorative power of dance. Engage with the creative process!
