“With ARENA’s 20 year history, I feel it is my duty to commit myself to developing and sharing the immense talent of the Twin Cities dance community. Making dance is a great labor of love. Sharing the work of other artists with ARENA audiences, extends the support of the dance community to the next generation of talented dance makers and connects us all.”
