April Sellers Dance Collective, Chris Schlicting, and Darrius Strong’s STRONGmovement

WORKS IN PROGRESS Showings by Non Edwards, Brenna Mosser, Blake Nellis, Taja Will and ARENA DANCES


Candy Box, presented by Mathew Janczewski’s ARENA DANCES is an annual, eclectic gathering of performances, workshops and public showings. This year’s festival features a range in levels of experiences, aesthetics and choreographic voices to offer a diverse array of treats!

“With ARENA’s 20 year history, I feel it is my duty to commit myself to developing and sharing the immense talent of the Twin Cities dance community. Making dance is a great labor of love. Sharing the work of other artists with ARENA audiences, extends the support of the dance community to the next generation of talented dance makers and connects us all.”
