What is the Color Wheel Project

The Color Wheel Project is an arts production that emphasizes how visual arts, music, and dance can intersect while also enabling community connections. The show incorporates visual art works from BVSD Elementary Students, dance from T2 Dance Company (including choreography from the company dancers), and music from local musicians Tyler Adams & Caton Sollenberger.

Company Dancers Haley Andrews, Kate Gomez Moore, Claire Kendall, and Veronica Goldberg will each select an artwork from the elementary students’ submissions. This will be their inspiration in creating a new contemporary dance piece for the performance. T2 is also collaborating with local musicians to present a unique score for the production with a smooth jazz flavor.

After intermission, the T2 dancers will be joined onstage by the CoreDance Contemporary Company from New York. This collaborative work, Just Passing Through, plays with the theme of transiting, particularly at an airport. This work is the result of a residency in January 2020 and is performed by the dancers of both companies.
