'For the 10th anniversary, we have cast our 'talent' net even further and are very pleased with the results. We will be producing two different programs with many of your favorite choreographers from Seattle, New York, Ohio, Oregon, New Jersey, Canada, as well as Northern and Southern California!

'Seattle native and world-renowned choreographer Mark Morris is sending company member Aaron Loux, who grew up and trained here in Seattle, to perform a solo that Mark originally choreographed for himself! Long-time dance innovator, Bill Evans returns to Seattle, to teach and perform! Cirque de Soleil veteran and elite gymnast Darren Bersuk will show us what the human body is capable of when treated to discipline, intensive training and imagination!

'Men in Dance will be honoring Anne Green Gilbert, Director and Founder of Creative Dance Center in Seattle WA, with the Ted Shawn/Lawrence Tenney Stevens American Dance Award. Ms. Green Gilbert has been a true leader in helping young men find their voice in movement and dance for over 30 years in this community and worldwide. The award ceremony will happen opening night of the first weekend.

'Men in Dance is committed to the idea that dance is for everyone. We have not raised our prices in several years. We hope that this festival inspires young people, particularly young men, to pursue their interest in dance.

'Please note the pay-what-you-can Saturday matinees.'

MISSION STATEMENT
At Against the Grain/Men in Dance, we are dedicated to educating the public on the importance of men dancing in contemporary society as they have always danced throughout history. It is our goal to produce performances that represent the diversity, power, artistic integrity and dedication of men who love to dance. Being a male dance artist takes courage, conviction, and an overpowering drive in order to engage in an art that is not often supported by the dominant culture. Our mission is to promote this journey.
