Open Showings

Open Showings

Starting January 12, 2018, from 8:00 Р9:00pm Halestone began to host open showings for work-in-progress dance and choreography on the second Friday of each month. These showings were free and open to the public with a $5 suggested donation for audience members and participants. Each showing included a moderated discussion between the artists presenting work and the audience viewing.
Anyone, even those who did not dance at Halestone, was welcome to show work at any stage of creation. Our intention was for this to be an opportunity for those developing work to receive feedback from a wide demographic in an informal setting on work that is still in development. We also hoped that the discussion sessions could serve as an opportunity to practice verbalizing around the art of dance as a community.

We are taking a short break from our Open Showings this fall as we regroup for the 2018-2019 Dance Calendar Year. Please contact us at if you are interested to show work and we will contact you when we resume our Open Showings.

Save the date for Friday, October 26th, 2018, at 7:30pm.

We will resume our Open Showings on Friday, October 26th, at 7:30pm with work-in-progress dance from Rebekah Chappell (Roanoke, VA), Sage Tanguay (Hot Springs, VA), and Emily Strong (Lexington, VA). Free dance performance and moderated discussion with a $5.00 suggested donation.
