Cowles Center announces inaugural season

The Cowles Center has been a long time coming, with efforts to renovate the old Shubert building spanning twelve years.

But finally, this fall, the new center for dance and the performing arts will open to the public, and it’s just revealed the details of the inaugural season.

Some acts are no surprise – James Sewell Ballet, Minnesota Dance Theatre, and the Illusion Theater – as they’ve had a longstanding relationship with the Hennepin Center for the Arts and/or the lobbying efforts for the new Shubert.

But it’s impressive to see so many different Minnesota dance companies lined up at the same venue. Take a look at who’s going to be on stage this season:

Ragamala Dance

Minnesota Dance Theatre

Beyond Ballroom Dance Company

Black Label Movement

Zorongo Flamenco

Native Pride Dancers

James Sewell Ballet

Mathew Janczewski’s Arena Dances

Stuart Pimsler Dance and Theater

Katha Dance Theater

Shapiro and Smith Dance Company

Zenon Dance Company

Buckets and Tap Shoes

Breaking Boundaries Dance Company

TU Dance

The season also includes performances by local vocal ensemble Cantus, and by New York based dancers Keigwin + Company.

The details of the season – and tickets – will be available on the Cowles Center website starting Monday.
