When WEAVE Dance Company performs their Christmas show at Barking Legs on December 19th, 20th & 21st, it won't be a typical Nutcracker ballet. WEAVE blends eclectic dance styles: Contemporary-Funk, Abnormal Ballet, Hip Hop and more. Shows are at 7:30 pm on the 19th and 20th and at 2:30 pm on the 21st. Tickets are available here.
The company also offers classes for amateur and professional dancers, ages 8 and up.
Barking Legs Theater was originally intended to be a dance workshop and performance space. Ann Law had already had a long career as a dancer when she and her husband, Dr. Bruce Kaplan, moved to Chattanooga in the early 1990’s. But within a few years Bruce and his partner, George Bright, began using the theater for acoustic music concerts. Since then it has become a showcase for all forms of music, dance and theater. But the aging building had some problems and so they decided to try and raise some money to repair some of the more pressing problems.
