Student Matinee

TDT is thrilled to present a double bill where company and guest dancers will share the stage through two new enticing works. Long-time TDT Dancer Yuichiro Inoue has collaborated with members of the ensemble to choreograph a piece reflective of his virtuosic career. Following this work, artistic duo KINAJ (AJ Velasco and Kin Nguien) share a piece that incorporates their cross-genre practices in street styles and contemporary dance.
