One of South Florida’s leading modern dance companies, Dance NOW! Miami, brings their style of sinewy, graceful and engaged choreography and performance to Aventura with their show Contemporanea.

The evening includes the World Premiere of their new work, Bridges Not Walls, which tackles what is dividing and bringing people together in these unsettled times. Taking as its jumping off point the recent political struggles and turmoil that have divided America, the work explores ways to overcome our differences and to find compassion for one another in a diverse society.

Also on the program is the newly staged Ritmo Jondo, with its choreography inspired by the deep rhythms of flamenco, a dramatic musical score by Catalan composer Carlos Surinach, and powerful choreography from dance great Doris Humphrey. It has been reconstructed on the company by Daniel Lewis, the former Dean of the Dance Department of Miami's New World School of the Arts, who will also introduce the performance in-person.
