TU Dance



Dance, Ordway Music Theater

Presented by SIT Investment Associates with additional support from Patricia A. Mitchell Fund for Dance

Founded in 2004 by Toni Pierce-Sands and Uri Sands right here in Saint Paul, TU Dance is a contemporary, 12-member dance company acclaimed for its diverse and versatile artists; and performances that draw together modern dance, classical ballet, African-based, and urban vernacular movements.

TU Dance’s choreography is driven by the connective power of dance. Complex, poetic, and deeply human, their powerful performances are a profound joy to experience.

We are proud to be presenting TU Dance again as part of our season and are excited to commission a new work for this performance.

Ordway Pre-Show Extra

Saturday, Apr 29, 2017
6:30pm | Marzitelli Foyer

Prior to each World Music & Dance Series performance, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about that evening’s performance genre(s) and topics through lecture, dialogue, and demonstration of a particular art form. The Ordway Extra presenters are primarily Twin Cities-based and have expertise on the evening’s topics, connecting the Main Stage touring performance to the local art scene. The intention of the Extra is not only to educate audiences, but also to engage and recognize local scholars and artists whose work parallels that of the invited national and international performances.
