What Marilyn is bringing to the Festival:
We are delighted to have Marilyn's work a part of the Festival.  

Her work is extremely well crafted, well rehearsed, uplifting and exhilarating.   ArtBark knows this first hand in that Got Country? rehearses out of the same studio and their rehearsals are often before ours & we get to enjoy previews of the work.

We are particularly pleased about adding a style of dance that augments the contemporary dance and physical theater.   Although Marilyn's work is classified in the line dancing/country form her choreography is so deeply layered and complex structurally that it could easily be viewed as contemporary dance.  

The group will be sharing their creative work and then get the audience up dancing so make sure you wear clothes you like to dance in to Center Stage Theater.
