Sarah’s dance company Kinetic Evolutions will perform excerpts from their recent production of "Destination Twin Cities," an impressionistic, time-traveling exploration of neighborhoods, landmarks, people and places that define urban life in Minnesota. Who were we, and who are we today?

Sarah LaRose-Holland is the Artistic Director of Kinetic Evolutions Dance Company and Assistant Director of Christopher Watson Dance Company. Sarah thoroughly enjoys both creating dances with her company and performing with CWDC. She is the founder and producer of the Kinetic Kitchen Dance Series presented at Patrick’s Cabaret. Sarah recently collaborated with Butch Thompson for an evening length production of Destination Twin Cities. This performance was made possible by the generous support of KBEM Jazz 88 through funding provided by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Sarah looks forward to her next collaboration with Butch Thompson and Jazz 88 in 2015.
