This weekend: Shoes at the Door Modern Dance Company

[image-1]Boe’s What’s the Rush…Why Wait? broaches the theme of the ticking of a young woman’s biological clock.  Lessner’s Weather or Not draws a metaphor between unpredictable weather patterns and life’s unforeseeable events.  Collectively, Imprints promises to be quite diverse, with work ranging from comically theatrical to athletic and explorative.

One of the goals of Shoes at the Door has been to put on a full length performance. "It feels good that we're contributing in a big way to the Tampa Bay dance scene. We're the new company in town and want to show everyone that we can bring fascinating and diverse movement to the stage," says Brooke Bissell, who founded the company alongside Boe and Lessner.  The company consists of 8 female dancers, most of whom are USF Dance Alumni.  The company has previously participated in local community performances such as HCC’s Four Days of Dance and Moving Current’s NewGrounds.

[image-2]Shoes at the Door also holds weekly class, open to the public at the rate of $10 per class.  This is a unique offering in the Tampa Bay area, as one of the few organizations offering professional level modern dance classes on a drop in basis.  For the schedule and location of weekly class, check

Shoes as the Door will perform Imprints on August 28th at USF Theatre I, with shows at 3pm and 8pm.  Tickets will be $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors and may be purchased online or at the door.  For
