How To Give Up on Your Dreams

Embark on Meg Chizek's hilariously chaotic quest for perfection, achieving her dreams, and finding life's true meaning! As she twirls through rejection, conformity, and even joins a dance cult, every pirouette leaves her in a spiral of existential dread forcing her to answer the ultimate question: who am I?!

Join the laughter, storytelling, and unexpected dance moves in this solo show that teaches you the art of giving up on dreams—because who said that can't be fun? Get ready to question everything, including your coordination!
