    Called “WV’s best kept secret,” WV Dance Company was founded in 1977 with the distinct purpose of enriching lives through dance and with special emphasis on making dance more accessible to rural communities. Today, the company continues to delight audiences across Appalachia and beyond with works that are thought-provoking and engaging yet approachable and appropriate for an audience of any age. 

    For its 43rd season, WV Dance Company introduces a new project, “Love of Power vs. Power of Love,” which explores the choice between exerting power over others or acting out of love. The piece unmasks the divisiveness, isolation and intolerance that evolves from misuse of power, and reveals the power of love to heal, unite and remind us of our shared humanity.

    The program will also include a performance by the IUP Dance Theatre Company of a new work created for the company by WVDC Founder, Toneta Akers-Toler. 

    This production is suitable for all ages, but the optional post-show discussion contains mature themes.
