Choreographed by BodyVox founders Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, this young, energetic troupe delivers the traditional BodyVox wit and whimsy, tenderness and athleticism with fresh faces and modern attitudes, plus fanciful short films featuring Hampton and Roland. This special performance also recognizes top Tower members.
This emerging group of performers has become a major key to the success of BodyVox, the innovative dance troupe established in 1997. They are imbued with curiosity and fascination with the endless possibilities of the human body in motion. BodyVox-2 performs and tours a unique show composed of classic BodyVox dances, plus new work created especially for them.
BodyVox-2 provides a mentoring and performing opportunity for talented young dancers as they transition from training to the professional world. The group spends a significant amount of time visiting schools throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. The performance November 9 is also a Tower Foundation membership recognition and appreciation event.
“We are honored to be the first theatre in Central Oregon to present these apprentices in the acclaimed BodyVox tradition,” said Ray Solley, Executive Director of the Tower Theatre Foundation. “It is also our way of saying thank you to our top level of supporters, the Tower Circle members.”
The Tower Theatre Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to maintaining and operating the historic theatre and making the best in performing arts available and accessible to all citizens of Central Oregon.
