We will be kicking off our 2024-2025 season with an engaging performance featuring Gonzaga Dance Students and IMGE Dance Company. IMGE is an American dance company rooted in Indian classical, hip hop, and contemporary. Founded by Ishita Mili, IMGE brings a new medium of storytelling focused on navigating social, cultural, and environmental constructs using a global movement vocabulary. Gonzaga Dance Students will be working with IMGE the week leading up to Season Opener in preparation for the performance. Audiences will enjoy performances by IMGE, Gonzaga Dancers, and learn about the artist residency.
