The 20th Annual DINE ON DANCE Lunchtime Performances features professional contemporary and site-specific dance and live music in easily accessible outdoor venues. These performances include original choreography by local professional choreographers and other local dance companies.

Featured in this year’s DINE ON DANCE are dance works by Leverage Dance Theater, Alice Bloch and Dancers presenting historical dance repertoire of Isadora Duncan, site-specific dance improvisation led by Beckah Reed (former co-director of Gash/Voigt Dance Theatre), playful choreography by Abigail Hinrichs (company dancer with Karlovsky & Company Dance), contemporary and site-related choreography by Karlovsky & Company Dance, and thrilling aerial dance by Newsam Aerial Dance!


Since 2004, DINE ON DANCE has been bringing dance performances with live music to the St. Louis community with contemporary and original dance created for specific outdoor locations.  Each choreographer contributes to the uniqueness of the program developing original work and exploring inventive ways to utilize the outdoor spaces.

These are FREE community performances.
Bring a chair, lunch, and enjoy! 

Directed by Dawn Karlovsky, Artistic Director 
Live music performed by Rick Kramer and Tory Starbuck
