Don't Miss This Red-hot Performance and Educational Event
The Emily Program – Cleveland and Akron-based RED (Real Edge Dance) Company are excited to join together and present, "Skins," a unique educational and performing arts event on Feb. 28.
It features the powerful modern dance work, "Skins," while educating the audience on the struggles behind eating disorders and negative body image.
We hope you can join us at 2 p.m. at the Akron-Summit County Public Library Auditorium for this special event.
RED Artistic Director Kelli Sanford, who choreographed the performance, opens it up with a commanding solo. Later, the piece features jerky, torqued movements by two pairs of women, who face each other through door-size frames, to confront their bodies in mirrors.
After the performance, Dr. Mark Warren, chief medical officer of The Emily Program, will present on eating disorder triggers, and how to obtain help and achieve recovery.
Meant for all ages, this event is sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council, The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation, The Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation, and the Akron Community Foundation. It's free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
