Past Performances

The National Arts Drive (June 20.2020)

The National Arts Drive is a fundraiser for local artists and creatives across the country (film, fashion, music, art, performance...). On Saturday, June 20, 2020, we're inviting artists across the U.S to showcase and perform from front lawns, driveways, balconies, and stoops. We're also inviting the community to drive through suburban streets and city blocks to witness their creative neighbors. The experience is paired with a mobile site and an interactive map that marks each art installation or performance

City Is Our Stage  (August 15, 2020)

During this unusual time, we are all craving live performance! Now, you can get in your car with your loved ones, and soak in multiple performances at locations throughout the greater Cleveland area!

Moving Still.... (September 26, 2020)

Performances by Ballet Legato, Blakk Jakk, Expedition Dance, Kismat, MorrisonDance. Keeping artists dancing and audiences engaged while keeping the arts alive! A collaboration of artists supporting the arts..and each other! It's been hard and we in the dance community have been tirelessly trying to find ways (and it hasn't been easy) to share our mission with you! If anything good has come out of this pandemic, it's the artists that have come together, some for the first time, and create fabulous dance!
