Dance has the power to be an action of change.  It acts as a lens magnifying concepts through abstraction and physicality, translating intangible ideas into movement.  choreography decodes emotional content and viscerally affects those who experience it.

Resident choreographer Ms. Sefton's work is personal emotional and issue-based.  She offers audience members crafted experiences and creates purposeful visceral images where there is room for audience members opinions, perceptions and conclusions.  Each work is infused with a great deal of content, which leads to complex and dense choreography.
