Forty Steps Dance to Celebrate 20th Year of Existence in Nahant, 3/16

Now in her 20th year as Artistic Director of Forty Steps Dance, Sallee Slagle has been fiscally sponsored by the Boston Dance Alliance, and recently incorporated as a non-profit cultural heritage institution.

In residence in the Serenity Room at the Nahant Community Center, Slagle also operates Dance Dimensions, a school for kids and adults who want the low-down on hip hop, or ballet, as well as ballroom and fitness.

"Twenty years ago, I was living in Nahant, performing and teaching," Slagle recalls. "I had a craving to create my own choreography, to express my vision through dance. When I thought about a name for the dance troupe, it was really obvious: Forty Steps, the most beautiful spot in our backyard."

To honor the journey, Forty Steps Dance will perform a 20th Anniversary Concert at Nahant Town Hall on Saturday, March 16 at 8 p.m., with captivating works from the past, present and future:

"Accord" (1992)
"Fragile" (2001 & 2011)
"Beneath the Surface" (2010)
"The Flood" (2012)
and excerpts from two new works in progress, "Creatures" and "Steps."

The performance is partially funded by the Nahant Cultural Council. General Admission tickets are $20 before March 1, and $25 afterward; $18 for seniors, students and members of the Boston Dance Alliance. Tickets may be purchased at www.fortystepsdance.org, or by calling 781-599-1476.
