Winifred Haun & Dancers Celebrates 25 Years with Special Moonstone Season

Winifred Haun & Dancers will celebrate 25 years of creating, presenting, and teaching award winning, innovative dance with a special 2022-23 Moonstone Season. The Season will include 3 major performances, an expansion of community programming, and several online events.


The gem Moonstone is a perfect metaphor for WH&D's 25th Season, because it represents light, hope, and new beginnings. Moonstone is also associated with inner clarity, femininity, and cyclical change.

The Company's Moonstone Season opens on Saturday, November 5 at 7:00pm at the Athenaeum Theater, with the premiere of When day comes, a new group work choreographed by Winifred Haun. The full program will feature excerpts from a retrospective of Company works including, Promise, Bento, I am (not) this body, and Love Not Me, a solo choreographed originally for Winifred Haun by Randy Duncan in 1989. This engagement will also Include a VIP Event and a Young Dancer Project. More programming details will be released in mid-September.

Tickets here.


On February 24 & 25, the Moonstone Season continues with the 2nd year of Carry us forward: new works by Banks Performance Project and Winifred Haun & Dancers at Hamilton Park Cultural Center in Englewood. This engagement will include a Young Dancers Project and several other community events. More details will be released in early January.
