Drive Dance, the spunky Winnipeg troupe founded by grads of the School of Contemporary Dancers’ professional program, is back with another captivating program of six works by senior local choreographers Stephanie Ballard and Gaile Petursson-Hiley. The pieces range from dreamy to quirky to fiery.

Inevitably, with the shortage of males in dance, the three guest men here aren’t of the same calibre as the four women. But they’re pretty darn good, so they should relax and show a little flair.

One feels the womanly spirit of recently departed choreographer Rachel Browne in A Quiet Place, an exquisite, understated new solo created by Ballard for magnetic dancer Arlo Baskier-Nabess, who is eight months pregnant. It’s a tender and touching expression of generational legacy, and of the mystery of impending life.

— Alison Mayes

From the Fringe program:

With beauty, wit and athleticism, Drive Dance takes the audience on a fast-paced ride into the dynamic world of modern dance.

"Flashback" sparks your deepest senses with highly physical, emotionally charged and stimulating choreography.

Drive Dance performed to sold-out houses, earning Best of Fest 2010 and 2011 and 4 STARS from the Winnipeg Free Press, CBC Manitoba and Uptown.

"passionate, theatrical, deeply musical and emotionally stirring... heart, soul, muscle and grace" - Winnipeg Free Press
