LIVING LEGENDS: SEASONS
Living Legends capture the essence of ancient and modern culture in a panorama of Latin American, Native American, and Polynesian song and dance.
Janielle Christensen, artistic director
Living Legends combines a dynamic repertoire of Native American choreography with the color and vitality of Polynesian and Latin American dance styles. Traditions come to life as talented descendants of these cultures weave together authentic choreography, intricate costumes and heart-pounding music into one captivating show.
The “Seasons” program will include a kaleidoscope of culture, with dances and songs from Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Fiji, Hawaii, Guatemala, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay, Samoa, Tahiti, Tonga and the United States.
Living Legends is run by the department of dance. The group has 44 members, made up of 36 performers and a technical crew of 8. All performers are of Polynesian, Latin or Native American heritage and are selected after a rigorous audition process.
