Now in its 11th year, Extensions Dance Company has become known for its athletic, dynamic aesthetic and its commitment to jazz and contemporary concert dance styles.

The program will include premiers of six pieces choreographed by distinguished guest artists, including Buffalo-based Jon Lehrer of Lehrer Dance and Boston-based Betsi Graves of Urbanity Dance. Additional guest artists include Spencer Gavin Hering and Andrea Dawn Shelley, artistic directors of internationally touring iMEE Dance Company; Richard Ashworth, a dancer and drummer for Chicago-based "Be the Groove;" and Shane Farrell of Newport's Island Moving Company.

"Weight of the World" by Marissa Masson '19 and "Seek, Seeking, Sought" by Cayley Christoforou '15 will also be performed. Both pieces were selected for the most recent Boston Contemporary Dance Festival. Additional choreographers include Allison Lavoie '17 and Haley Andrews '18.
