One of the iconic solo artists of the 20thand 21st centuries, Canadian dancer and choreographer Margie Gillis will perform four selections and take questions from the audience. Come and experience the deep artistry of this unique creator at this lecture demonstration on Feb. 22.

Each dance is a condensed distillation of a concept or state of being or experience. Each dance is created in its own unique manner, following the psychology of the subject to its architectural crystallization.These dances are created to support the soul’s visibility. They reflect my soul’s desire to touch.  -Margie Gillis
