Our Next Show:


Modern Dance Company, Rioult Dance NY will perform ‘Bolero’ and other works.

Internationally acclaimed, RIOULT Dance NY offers an evening of dance that will take your breath away.  This spectacular modern dance company has firmly established a reputation for blending compelling musicality and lyric elegance to create technically challenging, powerful work that is hailed by The New York Times as “stunning and vibrant…rich with intellect and emotion.” Celebrated for his bold and unexpected interpretations of great musical scores, Artistic Director Pascal Rioult creates dances that bring fresh perspective to timeless themes.  He was described by Backstage as “perhaps the most adept and courageous choreographer in mainstream modern dance today.”

The performances will take place on Friday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rudder Auditorium. To purchase tickets for this event, click here
