In VISIONS Contemporary Ballet: Traces (of what makes us who we are) this ethnically diverse company led by Ranardo-Domeico Grays, artistic director/choreographer, relays universal messages of the human experience. A five-year brain cancer survivor, Ranardo is creatively flourishing, presenting spiritually uplifting contemporary ballet works. The company will be premiering his new piece, “Still Healing,” inspired by stories of people who experience pain and suffering through no fault of their own, yet they persevere.  Also on the program will be “Dash – Between,” about living life in the dash between "born" and "died;" “Through the Valley,” which explores facing obstacles in one’s fight for health and life; and “Roots,” rooted in prayer, about self-growth. Company Dancers performing this evening will be Alexandria Amstutz, Asia Bonilla, Lilly Ann Comstock, Mathew Ortiz, and Nick Sartori.

Traces is made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and from Creative Engagement supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and administered by LMCC.
