Two dance companies made up of very different members will combine their talents and share the stage in one groundbreaking recital. "Figures in Flight 4," a professional dance company of Hudson Valley high school students, joins "Figures in Flight Released," adult males trained in dance while serving time at Woodbourne Correctional Facility in Sullivan County. The groups have both trained under the direction of renowned educator, choreographer, and artistic director Susan Slotnick, whose life-changing work with prison inmates has captured the attention of CNN, CBS News, and Dance Studio Life magazine. The two companies perform an evening of dance choreographed by Slotnick, incorporating pop, classical, jazz, and gospel styles, ending in a monumental joint number on June 7 at SUNY New Paltz's McKenna Theater, 7pm. (845) 257-7869; Newpaltz.edu.
