ArtSparks Virtual Performance

Our TNT/XD dancers have embodied the spirit of persistence and resilience this past year. From a year of learning and performing on Zoom, to a culminating outdoor film project, our team has stood by each other through one of the most challenging years and continues to commit themselves to the art of dance. 

 

Please enjoy these special video pieces that capture the spirit of persistence and resilience that resides in all of hearts.
