NextDANCE features UMD’s finest choreographers: faculty, students and alumni, culminating in the world premiere of GROOVE, by Stephanie Miracle.

A rock-’n’-roll, high-energy dance-theatre happening exploring groove and free style party dancing as a transcultural experience, the work catapults off of the universality of pop and rock music and lands on the unique, idiosyncratic ways individuals physically express themselves.
