The Lumina Festival of the Arts presents a dance showcase featuring Gaspard&Dancers, under the directon of Gaspard Louis. Prior to forming his own company, Gaspard was a dancer with Pilobolus Dance Theater for ten years. In addition to performing, touring, and teaching globally with Pilobolus, he collaborated on nine major dance works. In 2012, he received his MFA from the Hollins University/American Dance Festival program in dance. Gaspard has always sought to push the envelope technically and creatively in his choreography. His mission is to engage the audience in a way that is emotional and visceral. The company produces an annual performance season at Duke University in Durham and has been presented at the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts in New York City, Cape Fear Stage in Wilmington, NC, the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh, and Bermuda as well as across North Carolina as part of the NC Dance Festival. This dance showcase with Gaspard&Dancers will also feature individual works from local choreographers.

This performance will be followed by a FREE Salsa Party in the UNCW Amphitheater in collaboration with Wilmington Latin Dance!
