The Nederlands Dans Theater is on a world tour.
But in the United States, the prestigious dance company will see only the bright lights of California and the more local lights of UNC’s Memorial Hall.
Organized by Carolina Performing Arts, the event will feature the theater of 30 dancers performing two choreographed pieces on each of the two nights.
“(The company) is one of the most important, amazing, influential modern ballet companies in the world,” said Sean McKeithan, communications and marketing coordinator for Carolina Performing Arts.
He said the show promises to draw audiences from the student body and wider Carolina community alike.
“A lot of people are very excited about this,” McKeithan said.
Commending the levels of skill and accuracy in the group, he described their performances as “always razor sharp.”
“I’ve always been blown away by the technique and virtuosity of the dancers,” he said.
Julie Walters, a classical dancer who now works as an assistant professor of the practice of dance and is the co-director of the Duke Ballet Repertory Ensemble at Duke University, said the group had an “unmatched creativity” and versatility.
