When: Wed., Dec. 18, 7-9 p.m.
VISIONS Contemporary Ballet's artistic director, Ranardo-Domeico Grays, presents Traces (of what makes us who we are) with the premiere of "Still Healing," inspired by stories of those who experience pain and suffering through no fault of their own, yet persevere. Three more inspirational ballets will also be performed. This NYC-based ethnically diverse company relays universal messages of the human experience. Ranardo, a Detroit native, is a five-year brain cancer survivor who continues to flourish creatively. He is proud to bring his company home to share his spiritually uplifting contemporary ballets with the community that first nurtured dance in his life.
