Never seen professional dance?
Seen way too much of it?
Dance Night for Beginners, PHCA’s patented performance-with-sports-commentary showcase, offers you a crash course in dance-viewing, with expert analysis, profound interpretation, and works of splendorous artistic genius ranging from the stunning to the flabbergasting to the downright obscene.
In Episode 4, see what’s under those skirts, jazz pants, and sequined unitards when our performers fight it out in our first PANTS OFF DANCE OFF!
HOW IT WORKS: Four choreographers each show a short piece twice through. The first time the audience enjoys the pure version; the second time the performance is followed by commentators representing both the veteran and the novice spectator perspectives. The commentary, ranging from insighful to insipid, offers you new (and stupider) ways of viewing dance as an expressive art. If you’ve ever wondered what the hell those people are rolling around on the floor about; if you’ve ever sought the perfect amalgamation of the olympics, dog-shows, and high art; if you’ve ever yearned for new depth and intensity of meaning in your life, THIS IS IT.
