Dance legend Bill Evans first brought his summer institute of dance to Centrum in 1980. He and his dance company and teaching associates have returned many times over the years to teach and perform.
Evans and company will present an informal performance on Friday, August 10, 2018 at 7pm at the Fort Worden Chapel. Tickets are $10, cash only; doors open at 6:30pm.
