DIDA: Dance Party

When: Fri., March 25 2016


If you follow local dance, then you've watched Durham Independent Dance Artists perform. Now you can dance with them. Well into its second season of supporting local modern dance, DIDA is throwing its first fund-raiser, "Dance Party," with a modest price and worthy goals: hiring a videographer and buying a mobile dance floor for its third season. The former will document performances, which is essential for artists seeking grants or tours; the latter will enhance their ability to present in unusual venues, a DIDA staple. At the Vault, the event space under The Palace International, brief performances by DIDA artists including Leah Wilks, Renay Aumiller, Killian Manning, and Ginger Wagg unfold between 8 and 10 p.m., followed by a participatory dance party with DJ PlayPlay. As for dancing with people who do it onstage? Start toning up now; your ironic take on the Swim isn't going to cut it. —Brian Howe
