Join us for the premier of Ice Dance International’s new touring show called, GRACE, in Stowe, September 17, 2022. The show will feature work by Douglas Webster, Benoit Richaud and Cindy Stuart.
The IDI show, GRACE, will celebrate the art of dance on Ice. Artistic Director Douglas Webster notes that “It is an experience for the viewer, a theatrical journey with dynamic, athletic movement, intimate interaction, soaring grace and artistry, and swirling patterns that will transport the audience.” The show will premier new works created with the support of Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, the New England Foundation for the Arts, and Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH where the company will live together for the duration of the tour. The tour ends on October 16.
