“Social Animals” brings together concert and social dancers, and musicians of various instrumentations and backgrounds, to cross-train and improvise together in performance in one on ones, duo on duos, and as a full group. Held at the Icehouse rather than a traditional theater and featuring a dance floor open to all after the show, “Social Animals” seeks to gnaw at the gap between ‘dance you do (social) and dance you view (staged).’ The connections between social and staged dance ideas in America are dynamic, highlighting how cultural ideas and the people that practice them can thrive because of both their similarities and differences: come see this unfold through movement and music, and stick around after the show for Icehouse’s weekly Sunday night dance party, Nightchurch. This event has been made possible in part by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council’s Next Step grant, funded by the Legacy Amendment the voters of Minnesota made law in 2008.
