Join Artistic Directors Toni Pierce-Sands and Uri Sands for TU Dance’s celebratory 15th anniversary season! The show will be a reflection on the company’s rich repertoire of dynamic and thought-provoking works by choreographer Uri Sands. The anniversary program will feature the Ordway‘s first commission for TU Dance– With Love (2011).  Inspired by the depictions of urban life and dance in the paintings of African American artist Ernie Barnes, choreographer Uri Sands brings Barnes’ work from the canvas to the stage using contemporary and modern forms of movement set to the legendary music of American soul legend Donny Hathaway.
