New Dance Horizons V: Women Who Inspire explores women of all periods, from all backgrounds, and in all fields who consciously and positively influenced the world as we know it.

Four nationally reputed female choreographers will set original dance pieces on three local companies – San Francisco-based Wendy Rein and Ryan T. Smith set an original work on MADCO; Amy Seiwert, also based in San Francisco, pairs with Saint Louis Ballet; and Chicago’s Stephanie Martinez collaborates with The Big Muddy Dance Company. 

The three original, moving and inspired dance pieces experience their WORLD DEBUT in St. Louis
