Welcome to "Looking Glass," a spectacular dance performance that offers a sensory journey through the intricate labyrinth of identity, self-worth and the uncertainties of youth. Through the language of dance, the power of music, and the reflections in mirrors, we invite you to rediscover yourself and the world in a new light. Young movers and professional dancers meet, explore and dance together on stage.

Step into a magical space filled with disco balls, pulsating music, and graceful dancers, weaving an enchanting and captivating visual narrative. Through both the physicality of movement and the emotional depth of dance, we embark on a journey through the fractured reflections offered by the disco ball mirrors. This immersive experience encourages introspection about how we perceive ourselves and how we mirror our identities in others.

"Looking Glass" is a purposefully crafted performance aimed at engaging and inspiring local youth to explore the realm of art, fostering a deeper understanding of identity and self-worth through artistic expression. The title, "Looking Glass," alludes to the unexpected, challenging conventional norms, and delves into this exploration through captivating visual and emotional elements.

While we're on the subject of youth; yesterday's premiere of Looking Glass was an exceptionally beautiful and captivating performance about growing up and making choices.
In fact, it's somewhat unusual to see so many dancers at once; the stage was transformed into a dance floor, filled with disco balls. However, the movements on the stage went far beyond the party atmosphere. The movements of the youth were, in fact, pure philosophical exercises. The dance piece attempted to tackle an incredibly important question: What do we really see in our reflection?
