Benita Bike’s DanceArt has performed across New England, in Europe and throughout California during its 35-year history. This five-member modern dance company has screen-shot-2017-02-23-at-11-31-24-amreceived praise for its quality concert work and its extensive community outreach programming. Like a string quintet, the dancers of Benita Bike’s DanceArt perform with uncommon sensitivity to one another, bringing intense beauty and vibrancy to each delicately crafted, expressive movement.

The Las Cruces performance will feature “Renaissance 5,” “On Beat 3,” and “Old Postcards from Europe.” “Renaissance 5,” set to bawdy 16th century drinking music is a dancey quintet infused with energy and innocence. Dance reviewer Jeff Slayton of SeeDance.com describes “On Beat 3” as “a rapid-fire movement piece driven by the music Tin Play by Swedish composer Per Andreessen.” “Old Postcards from Europe” is a romantic interpretation of found antique postcards with a remembrance of those who perished in the Holocaust (WWII).

Admission to the Branigan Cultural Center is free. The museum is located at 501 North Main Street and is open Tuesday – Friday from 10 am to 4:30 pm and Saturday, 9 am to 4:30 pm. For additional information about this program, visit the website at: museums.las-cruces.org or call 818.353.5734.
