Dark Circles Contemporary Dance, in partnership with Las Cruces Public Schools, are holding two free community masterclasses, on Saturday, December 11, 2021. Having successfully presented two free performances during the Saturday Farmers & Crafts Market last August, Las Cruces native and award-winning choreographer Joshua L. Peugh has relocated his internationally acclaimed dance company back to his hometown. Eager to dive into the community, he has scheduled two free dance masterclasses, with more to come.

“We hope this will be the beginning of a series of free monthly masterclasses for the community led by seasoned dance professionals from around the world,” says Joshua. “We want to provide the Mesilla Valley with innovative and excellent contemporary dance. Since our first performance in South Korea in 2010, we have dedicated ourselves to crafting and curating entertaining, inventive, and—most importantly—accessible dance, specifically for the community we call home. We are eager to serve the people of Las Cruces and its surrounding areas.”

The classes are scheduled for 10 a.m. (Contemporary dance, with Vanessa Owen and Gavin Stewart) and 12 p.m. (Jazz with Erin Vonder Haar), at Las Cruces High School, and are free and open to the public, ages 21 and up. A registration form, along with more information, can be found on the website.
