Don't Miss It!

Purdue Contemporary Dance Company Purdue Contemporary Dance Company's "Winter Works"

"To dance," Agnes de Mille said, "is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful." The Purdue Contemporary Dance Company bears literal witness to this truth in "Winter Works." In the dance, others can see the glory that resides in a passionate expression of creative, life-affirming ideas. Don't Miss It!
