The Doorway

Kelli Leighton started CORE Contemporary Dance nearly eight years ago in an effort to educate both new and aspiring dancers. Her works have garnered heaps of critical praise from the community and she had the prestigious honor of being one of the first dancers commissioned by the local Crocker Museum. She’ll feature a talented troupe of young dancers in her upcoming seasonal production of The Doorway. Additionally, attendees will be treated to some of Leighton’s exciting newer works. If that weren’t enough to get you off your couch, she’ll also add some other talented choreographers, Amy Berokoff and Adam Peterson, into the mix. Her company has already made a huge impact on the Sacramento valley and neighboring cities and has proved itself worthy of its 501(c) nonprofit status. If choreography and dance are your thing, do seek out her company to provide not only direction but a strong support system to get started in the industry. Whether you live in Sacramento or Folsom, she’s got you covered with three special shows: Friday, Oct. 16, 2015, at The Harris Center in Folsom and two nights at at the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center in Sacramento on Friday, Oct. 23 and Saturday, Oct. 24.
