90 minutes without intermission



Carolyn Dorfman Dance returns to SOPAC for a joyous evening that will have audiences dancing in their seats. Carolyn and her eleven multi-ethnic and stunning dancers invite you to celebrate the human experience with new works and repertory favorites including:

The whirling PASTORALE PAUSE. With images inspired by the mountains and meadows of the American West, Dorfman creates a journey that embraces the serenity, jubilation, sensuousness and intoxication of being at one with nature and the relationships and play it evokes;

The vibrant PRIMA!, Dorfman’s newest piece commissioned by Ocean County College and the Gia Maione Prima Foundation. In PRIMA!, Dorfman and her versatile company explore the robust, driving and buoyant sound of Louis Prima and his band with the powerful, virtuosic and expressive voices of Prima’s female lead singers, Gia Maione Prima and Keely Smith;

The world premiere of NOW – a new work by innovative dancer, choreographer Juel D. Lane (a former Carolyn Dorfman Dance company member). Perfectly made for this time of uncertainty, NOW, showcases Juel’s signature fast-paced, heart-stopping, choreography set on the perfect company to actualize his defiant journey of thriving and creating incredible art despite the fearful and difficult time we now find ourselves.

Come, be inspired by this bold, athletic, ‘no holds barred’ company and dance works for now.
