Capturing the Moment is a virtual two-part showcase of seven dance choreographers who have received the highest honor from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts - a Choreography Fellowship. Each evening's program includes performances as well as commentary by the artists and by dance critic Robert Johnson.
Dancers moving through space with humor, passion, elegance and power will fill you with awe at the beauty of the human form and its ability to fill us with emotion. See some of New Jersey’s extraordinary dance companies showcased on the intimate SOPAC stage.
SOPAC Dance performances are generously supported by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.
