Join Us for a DANCEworks Cabaret evening featuring Larry Keigwin + Nicole Wolcott in “Places Please!” 

A Benefit for DANCEworks
Tuesday, April 25 / 6-8 PM / Onstage at the Lobero Theatre


On April 25, DANCEworks will host an exciting cabaret evening with two of our favorite–and New York’s hottest–choreographers, Larry Keigwin and Nicole Wolcott of KEIGWIN + COMPANY. Enjoy the anxiety and playfulness of life before the curtain rises in their zany new collaboration “Places Please!”. This new work was commissioned by DANCE NOW and is set to make it’s NYC Debut at Joe’s Pub in May–making this an exclusive sneak peek!

Larry Keigwin is a native New Yorker and choreographer who has danced his way from the Metropolitan Opera to downtown clubs to Broadway and back. He founded KEIGWIN + COMPANY in 2003, and as artistic director, he has led the company as it has performed at theaters and dance festivals around the world.

Nicole Wolcott is a choreographer, teacher, and performer based in Brooklyn, NY. Called “one of today’s finest dance comedians and a knockout dancer,” by the New York Times, Wolcott has enjoyed a long career with dance companies, rock bands, and video artists around the country and been the subject of a feature article in Dance Teacher magazine.

“It is hard to imagine other performers who could so subtly communicate the edgy blend of humor and sadness in this romp.” – Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times
