MN Dance Roots, Movers and Shakers: Exhibit at Elmer L. Andersen Library - November 22 to January 31

Explore the exhibition Dance Roots: Minnesota’s Movers and Shakers, open until January 31, 2024, celebrating Minnesota’s dance community drawn from the University of Minnesota’s dance section of its Performing Arts Archives (PAA). The exhibition displays memorabilia and a network of dancers, companies, teachers, photographers, dance spaces and supporters.

In December, granddaughters of Loyce Houlton read from her unpublished memoir. See website for exact info.
