(followed immediately by the Young Steinway Concert)

The Evanston Dance Ensemble brings us a brief preview of the group’s upcoming full-length show. Travel through space as the dancers and music evoke a particular mood for each celestial body in ballet, jazz, and modern dance styles. North Shore Magazine describes the ensemble as “advanced placement for dancers — they look like junior Balanchines and minor Isadora Duncans. You’re going to ask yourself, incredulously, ‘They’re how old?’”
