Jersey City resident Samuel Pott's Nimbus Dance Works will celebrate its Tenth Anniversary Season tonight, November 8 at 7PM with a benefit performance at the Barrow Mansion, located at 83 Wayne Street in Historic Downtown Jersey City. This performance will include some of its most beloved repertory works, including Memo, and Surface Tension. Also being performed is an excerpt from a provocative new work being premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on May 8 & 9, 2015. Tickets are $65 and will include a pre and post-show reception, silent auction and a live auction. The Star-Ledger said "Nimbus Dance Works helps define the American Experience". All monies raised will help Nimbus continue its mission of bringing people and dance together in an innovative way.

Nimbus's collaborations include work with many celebrated contemporary artists such as composers Daniel Bernard Roumain, Samson Young, Judd Greenstein, Aaron Parks and visual artists Nicola Lopez and Trudy Miller. Founded by Samuel Pott in 2005 and known for creating structured, musical dances that evoke deep-rooted emotional connections, Mr. Pott's choreography has been shown in New York City, New Jersey, New England and California at venues including the Joyce Theater, Downtown Dance Festival and Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival. The Bar-Harbor Times called Nimbus " of the country's most exciting young dance ensembles".

Performers with Nimbus Dance Works are top-tier dance artists drawn from widely recognized companies including Ballet Hispanico, Ailey II, and the Martha Graham Dance Company. In addition to work by Artistic Director Samuel Pott, the company commissions dances by leading international dancemakers including Luca Viggetti (Italy), Pedro Ruiz (Cuba/USA), Huang Yi (Taiwan), Korhan Basaran (Turkey), and Xiao-Xiong Zhang (Australia/Taiwan).
