Sponsored by the Dance Network Alliance, this variety show extravaganza of Bloomington performers harkens back to early twentieth-century vaudeville troupes that crisscrossed the country by train, entertaining young and old alike. There is something for everyone, including a children’s matinee featuring many younger performers, and a more risqué, adult evening show.

Performers include members of AsaBela Aerial Circus Academy, The Hudsucker Posse, Windfall Dancers, Bloomington Acro Yoga, The Dance Center, plus the Delightful Regina Sweet, Mad 4 My Dog, Starkey the Wonder Horse, Charlie the Parrot, and Stardusters Swing Band.

Matinee hosted by the Hilarious Joseph Ermey with live music by Ross Martinie Eiler. Evening show hosted by The People’s Diva Argenta Peron and two-time Bloomington Comedy Festival winner David Britton.

Made possible in part by the Bloomington Arts Commission and the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Arts Start Up Program.

The Promoter

More Information

The Dance Network Alliance~DNA was formed on June 26th of 2012. Many key members of the Bloomington Dance Community were in attendance and beautiful performances were viewed by a captive audience at Windfall Dance Studios. Our first meeting and “showcase”, part of an Arts Alliance Artists After Hours event, was a huge success. We are the newest Guild to form under the umbrella of the Arts Alliance, and plan to hold a dance Showcase annually. Our DNA Showcases will feature any and all dancers who want to perform solos, duets or group pieces either in finished form, or works in progress.
