Expansion is a potential launching pad for these dancin’ fools, a pre-professional group for those in their late teens and up to boost their game. There are auditions each year, with those chosen given scholarships. Then, they rehearse, rehearse, rehearse and, ultimately, perform. Strutting their stuff, tonight’s selection consists mainly of contemporary pieces, with funk flares and a dash of hip-hop. “All the pieces are amazing. I audition people all over the world, and I am really impressed with this show,” Story says. They’re joined by several dance companies—Vibe, Center Stage, Noiz, among others—each performing one piece, making a jam-packed, kinetic evening.
