    The Traverse City Dance Project's third stop on its 2024 summer tour will be an exciting and rare opportunity for Northern Michigan audiences to experience professional dance at its best, right here in downtown Frankfort! Set against the incredible backdrop inside of the historic Garden Theater, attendees are in for an evening of artistic brilliance and a captivating performance. Before the main event, guests can enjoy pre-show tunes by Jordan Hamilton and his band, setting the perfect mood for the evening ahead. The program boasts an impressive lineup of professional dancers from across the country, showcasing new dance works by esteemed choreographers Matthew Neenan and Resident Choreographer Jennifer McQuiston Lott, in collaboration with composer Jordan Hamilton and musicians Grayson Nye & Andy Catlin. Additionally, audiences can look forward to a new work by Rachel Harris, a Bessie Award Nominee and Howard University's 2021 Emerging Choreographer to Watch, along with a premiere by Artistic Director Brent Whitney, promising a diverse and engaging program. Following the performance, attendees are invited to participate in a Q&A session with the dancers, musicians, choreographers, and crew, providing insight into the creative process and behind-the-scenes experiences. This promises to be a highlight event of the summer, offering a unique and unforgettable experience that combines live performance with the beautiful setting of the historic Garden Theater. All donations will benefit The Garden Theater so they can continue to support arts programing.
