**SOLD OUT** Dance Events* Dancing At The Source! Moving The Future!
Aug 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Volcano Art Center in partnership with Grassroots Community Development Group (GCDG), and Compassion & Choices (CC) presents Dancing At The Source! Moving The Future! The event is a fundraiser for the VAC Heritage and Archival Project and the Big Island Dance Council, on Saturday, August 17th, 2024. This intimate, dance performance celebrates VAC’s 50th Anniversary and highlights the evolution of modern dance on Hawaiʻi Island. Beginning at 5 pm with a free dance performance in The Sculpture Garden at Niaulani, the public is invited to a brief, 30-minute, performance that nods to VAC’s history with dance interacting with the natural environment.

A second fundraising performance begins at 7 pm in Dietrich Varez Hall, also located at VAC’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. This special event could make you laugh, cry, or remember past pieces choreographed by the founder of the Volcano Dance Retreats, Earnest T. Morgan.  The legacy dance Performance focuses on works that celebrate the innovative spirit of past Volcano Art Center Dance Retreats and upcoming dancers who carry on this dance legacy. Iconic photographs from past Dance Retreats, taken by Boone Morrison and other celebrated photographers, spanning from 1975 – 1985 will be on display and made available through VAC’s Heritage and Archive Program. This event is co-sponsored by VAC, GCDG, and CC.  A silent auction fundraiser will accompany this special Legacy Concert.  Seating is extremely limited. Tickets are $50 for VAC Members/ $60 for non-members. Both events are held at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus (19-4074 Old Volcano Rd) in Volcano Village.
