DanceAspen invites you to an exclusive preview of Cloudline, created by choreographer Robyn Mineko Williams. Join us at the Rooftop Café for an open rehearsal that brings viewers behind the scenes.

Cloudline, initially brought to life by Hubbard Street Dance in Chicago, has been met with enthusiastic acclaim for its “lyrical intensity and genius couplings.” This special preview provides a glimpse into the rehearsal routine, followed by a Q+A session with the dancers. The performance marks a unique opportunity to engage what is often a private creative process and dive into Cloudline prior to its premiere in Limitless at the Wheeler Opera House on February 16 and 17.

The Rooftop Café will offer drink specials starting at 3:30 PM prior to the performance.
