Concerto Dance by Jolene Konkel was meant to have its premiere public performance in April 2020. COVID-19 changed all that. Now, just past it's one year-anniversary as a new company, Artistic Director Jolene Konkel and Dancers are thrilled to host the premiere of a new dance film!

Filmed in Northfield, MN and set to music by the Danish String Quartet, Awakenings takes audiences on a journey to rediscover hidden possibilities and rekindle hope through community, letting go, and courageously moving forward together.

Join us, starting at 7 PM, for an online private gala event to include a few words of reflection about the work from Artistic Director Jolene Konkel, a Q&A with several of the dancers and filmmaker Nate Sheppard, and the premiere of the film!
