Modern dance company brings original moves to the community

 

 

Dancer 2The 940 Dance Company will perform at the Baker Arts Center Saturday. The dance company is based in Lawrence and has been touring the Midwest for 21 years. “I’m excited to have something different and see how people react,” said the executive director of Baker Arts Center, Adriane Hatcher. The dance company was brought to Liberal with the help of Kansas Art Commission, Liberal Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and the Liberal Holiday Inn. “We had some grant support,” Hatcher said. The company was selected from a roster of artists that the Kansas Art Commission releases every year. “It’s a roster of artists and performers that will travel around the state and we wanted to come up with something different this year,” Hatcher said. One of the interesting dances of the night is titled “Prismatica,” a light show where the audience will be asked to wear special glasses. The performance will be at 7 p.m. Saturday at the James Maskus Auditorium inside Liberal High School. Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children aged 4-12, there will be an additional $2 added to the tickets if purchased at the door.
