Presented by: Caroline Calouche & Co.
Clara LeBlanc trips at a holiday party and is whisked off to the hospital to learn that her ankle is broken. That night her friends and get-well gifts swirl in her dreams. This show is the perfect family event during the holiday season.
Founded in 2005, Caroline Calouche & Co. evolved from years of independent choreography and performance in the U.S. and Europe. Caroline Calouche gathered a small group of three dancers to debut the contemporary dance company with “Risk” in her hometown of Gastonia, N.C. Since the initial performance, CC&Co. has performed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
In 2006, Caroline Calouche began her explorations of blending contemporary dance with aerial dance in harness and fabric. The company’s reputation for providing innovative, entertaining and edgy work was pushed to another level with the aerial work. With the increase of performances and touring, CC&Co. continues to connect to their home community along with the communities that they visit with their outreach programs in all age, ethnic and social groups.
Caroline Calouche & Co. is a non-profit organization formed with the mission of creating, producing and promoting contemporary dance choreography in conjunction with multi-disciplinary artistic collaborations. The goal is to build cross-cultural dialogs with dance as a means to unite and educate the global community through an exchange of philosophies and methods.
