The Peridance Capezio Center will mark its 30th anniversary with a bang this Saturday, June 8, hosting a gala at the NYU Skirball Center for the Arts. It promises to be a fun evening—performances include the Peridance Contemporary Dance Company in Dwight Rhoden's Evermore and Igal Perry's Infinity, and all ticket holders are welcome to attend a champagne reception in the Skirball lobby and a post-show party back at Peridance. (Tickets here.)

 

The New York City landmark studio has come a long way since it opened its doors back in 1983. The school, founded and directed by Igal Perry, moved to its current downtown location in 2010 and now offers more than 250 weekly classes in its adult open division, plus countless masterclasses and workshops. Peridance also houses a children's program, a teen performance ensemble, a two-year certificate program, and an international program, as well as the Limón School, Djoniba Dance Center, and the BAILA Society. The place is practically exploding with dance.

 

Here's to another 30 years, Peridance!
