This just in...

Insiders know that the mainstage shows are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to dance performances at ADF. All summer long, emerging professional choreographers and dancers are showing their works, on side stages on Duke’s West and East campuses. And the price is right: most of the performances are free.

We’ve been following Lisa Race’s work for years: in thoughtful, exuberant dances she’s put on students as an ADF faculty member and as a guest choreographer at regional colleges. Friday night sees her latest work, Garden: Retreat, in an MFA concert for the ADF school. It's at Sheafer Theater (on the bottom floor of Bryan Center) at 7:15 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Admission is free.

And before her appearance at ADF’s Acts to Follow showcase on June 30, choreographer/dancer Ashlee Ramsey curates Falling Grounded, an evening of regional modern dance at 2ArtChicks, a funky art gallery in downtown Greensboro. (For out-of-towners, UNC Greensboro has one of the strongest modern dance programs in this part of the country. It’s about an hour up the road—and worth the trip.)
