Long Center & Theatre en Bloc presents Dance Nation
Long Center will partner with Theatre en Bloc to present the regional premiere of Dance Nation, an original, comedic play written by Clare Barron and directed by Jenny Lavery.
Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. But in Barron’s raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power.
