July 13, 2006 – A highlight of the Cain Park Evans Amphitheater summer season is the annual Inlet Dance Theatre performance. Returning for its sixth year, Inlet Dance Theatre is delighted to present a dynamic program showcasing professional dancers alongside students from its Summer Dance Intensive (SDI) – a multi-week instructional camp for dancers of all ages and experience levels. “The Cain Park performances continue the education process for our SDI students,” commented Inlet Artistic Director Bill Wade. “The hard work put into giving this public performance helps give our SDI students a well-rounded dance experience. But beyond the thrill of being transformed from a group of diverse students into a unified ensemble, the applause they receive from Cain Park audiences goes a long way toward helping them continue in dance.”

Highlighted works from the professional Inlet company members will include “The Door,” – a suite of dances to Brahms Variations about redemption and transformation created by Steve Rooks (former principal dancer with Martha Graham) that acquired its well-received world premiere this winter at Cleveland Public Theatre’s DanceWorks series. Another work is “Ascension,” a remounting of a sculptural work Wade created in 1998 at the acclaimed Cleveland School of the Arts’ YARD program that positively explores the transformative nature of passing on one’s legacy.

A repertory program of several works featuring SDI students will be staged at Cain Park. A partial list of these works includes: “Twists and Turns” – an original work from Inlet company member Allison Prucha about body flexibility and navigating life. “Geeks Love Nostalgia” – a hip-hop piece from guest choreographer Leilani Barrett. “A Love Song” – a new work from Inlet company member Leila Pelhan that serves as an observation about love featuring music from Johnny Cash. Also being performed is “Stooges,” – a playful work from Bill Wade inspired by slapstick comedy and featuring music from Warner Brothers’ Looney Tunes composer Carl Stalling along with local composer Ryan Lott.

One of the region’s newest and most exciting professional contemporary dance companies, Inlet Dance Theatre creates and performs dance works with a high level of quality, skill, and innovation. Headed by Artistic Director/Founder Bill Wade, Inlet Dance Theatre uses the art form of dance to bring about personal development in the lives of individuals through training and mentoring, and to speak creatively about life and the issues we all face.
