Tallahassee fans will have the opportunity to experience the talented Adele Myers and Dancers company perform live at Florida State University’s Nancy Smith Fichter Dance Theater on Thursday, Oct. 12.
Adele Myers and Dancers will be performing as part of FSU’s Opening Nights series. Their highly skilled and dedicated team is made of female athletes. This will be one night you won’t forget. It promises to be a life-changing, soul-shaking, and exhilarating experience. Their presentation is unique and unlike any other.
Throughout this performance, the company will introduce T.W.I.S.T., which will consist of many different dance themes that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. It’s going to be a ground-shaking performance and one that may leave an everlasting imprint on your heart and soul.
It’s definitely a performance that will serve to raise the voices of Miami youth dancers and athletes.
In the Miami New Times, Myers discussed her early life experiences as a dancer in New York.
“We’d all be taking classes, and different company members and artistic directors would be in the classes together. Other dancers would walk by on their way to rehearsal, or you’d sit in the hallways getting to know each other,” Myers said. “People were literally crossing paths. And there’s a space and an energy that comes around when there’s that kind of criss-crossing in space and time.”
Founder Adele Myers is a Miami-based dancer, educator, community organizer and the artistic director behind Adele Myers and Dances (AMD), a national touring contemporary dance theater company. Driven by the passion to create a dance theater dedicated to advancing and amplifying female artists and athletes, Adele Mysers and Dancers was launched.
Cameron Basden, a former Joffrey Ballet dancer, also shared her memory of when she and Myers initially moved to Miami with a vision.
“We had lunch together immediately because we were both excited about the dance community here and that there were so many kinds of dance. But we both had the same question: ‘Where is the center? Where is it that everyone comes together?’” Basden said.
“It wasn’t so much a physical place, however, but more of a community. I kept hearing over and over that what was missing was that they wanted to be unified; they wanted to have conversations together, something that could be an umbrella to hold them together that wouldn’t only promote dancers but unify them.”
Adele Myers and Dancers will perform as part of FSU’s Opening Nights lineup. The show begins at 7:30 p.m.
