Springboard 2022 Description:
For its 11th season, our smorgasbord choreographic showcase is back! Bare Bait Dance revives its ever-popular choreographic showcase, Springboard, featuring the talented BBD Company members and local guest artists. Springboard 2022 celebrates the creative visions of some of Missoula's most inspired dance-makers. Eight new, original dance works showcase unique movement voices while exhibiting the versatility and range within the contemporary modern dance genre. Performed by the BBD Company Dancers, Apprentices, and Guests, you won't want to miss the energetic power and technical talent on the Springboard stage!

Highlights from Springboard 2022:

Missoula-born, Faith Morrison, has returned to our valley after dancing professionally in Oregon. For Springboard 2022, Faith created work on three BBD company dancers. Thematically, Faith's new work explores an arid desert climate, examining its inhabitants' vulnerability and frenetic?stillness.?
BBD company member alumna Ashley Zhinin (Season 6), joins us again to choreography ?Slumber (Party),? a piece about the fun and games that happen at a good old-fashioned slumber party.? Ashley says, ?After so much isolation as of late, I couldn't wait to come out of that slumber and get into the studio to play...this piece is the result."?
In addition to the guest artists, we have new works by BBD Company Choreographers: Maeve Fahey, Joy French, Tara McFarland, Grace Nolan, Tiki Preston, & Ruby Roberts.
