Hidden Hymns [Saturday, June 17]

Hidden Hymns is an evening of Modern Dance by Meagan Woods & Company set to live original music by Shayfer James – and it all goes down at the 407 Theater-County Prep HS (525 Montgomery Ave.) this Saturday, June 17th at 7pm.

Meagan wanted to create a night with dance at the forefront, a show to highlight professional dancers, feature students, and honor a true coming together of friends and dedicated collaborators, such as Shayfer, who she’s worked with throughout the years.

“I can feel something building, something really meaningful,” says Meagan of choreographing and rehearsing these six dances, with a collective cast of 21 dancers.

Tickets are $15/general; $6/students. Purchase online here. You can also pay at the door, but door tickets are cash only.

Meagan Woods & Company can use your support to continue bringing arts programs to the community. Think: costumes, lighting, sound, rehearsal space & venue rentals, professional musicians and dancers, and so much more that goes into making these shows possible. You can donate to the cause here, and your gift is tax deductible.
