Photo Flash: Playwrights Horizons Presents the World Premiere of DANCE NATION

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they'll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. But in Clare Barron's raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié andjeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power.

DANCE NATION has an opening night set for Tuesday, May 8 at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater, with a limited engagement through Sunday, May 27. For more information & Tickets: www.phnyc.org
