When Vashti's teacher asks her to draw a picture, Vashti insists she's not an artist and makes an angry dot to prove her point. But when her teacher frames her dot and hangs it up, Vashti is sent on a surprising journey of self-discovery. This charming fable about the power of the creative spirit comes to life through music and dance. This encore presentation of our adaptation of the award-winning book by Peter H. Reynolds a delightful continuation of our collaboration with Escalate Dance that brought you Owl Moon, The Mitten, Twelve Dancing Princesses and The Snow Queen.

"What I love about this story is that out a simple jab of a pencil, the journey into considering herself an artist begins for Vashti," said Boren-Barrett. "Each Dot that Vashti creates has a story of its own and with each dot Vashti gains more confidence in herself. The production illustrates what Vashti actually imagines her dots to represent- and, like the imagination of a child, it is limitless, creative and fun."
