A fabulous night of dancing for Valentine’s Weekend! If you like Dancing with the Stars, you’ll love Beyond Ballroom Dance Company! Consisting of professional competitive ballroom dance champions who have thrown away the rule book. Finding inspiration in the glory days of partnership dancing, when Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers swept across the stage, BBDC adds their own contemporary twist. From foxtrot to salsa, the company blends the elegance and sophistication of time-honored ballroom dances with the heart pounding rhythms of Latin dance. This evening of original work demonstrates the beauty, sensuality, and passion of ballroom dance with the unforgettable panache for which Beyond Ballroom is so widely celebrated.
“Beyond Ballroom Dance Company takes championship ballroom dancing beyond the competitive show circuit and into a theatrical setting with sass, sensuality and panache.” -Star Tribune
“With its fresh perspective and radical performances, Beyond Ballroom Dance Company is changing the face of ballroom in the Twin Cities.” – Metro Magazine

Rivers are a constant flow of water, energy and matter withholding the ability to generate modification. Canyons, caves and valleys are all natural works constructed with the force of flowing water. Throughout the ages the river molded, not just the landscape of Saint Cloud, but also the lives of the people who have lived and worked here. The life of the river is everlasting vicissitude, a breath of transformation in each moment. We invite all artists to celebrate the ebb and flow of varying types of visual art that thrive in Central Minnesota.
