Special Educational Opportunities Available to Community for Pilobolus

Pilobolus—named after a barnyard fungus that propels its spores with extraordinary speed, accuracy and strength—is a dance company founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971. Pilobolus continually forms diverse collaborations that break down barriers between disciplines and challenge the way we think about dance. Physically and intellectually, the company engages and inspires audiences around the world through performance, education and consultation. Don’t miss Pilobolus at Miller Auditorium on Tuesday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.

In conjunction with the April 15 performance, Pilobolus will also offer several educational opportunities while they are in Kalamazoo. In partnership with the Kalamazoo Regional Educational Service Agency’s Education for the Arts program, school performances will take place at Miller Auditorium on April 15 & 16, presenting the creative talents of Pilobolus to thousands of area K-8 students. There will also be a master class—led by Pilobolus company members—for Western Michigan University and Education for the Arts dance students on Monday, April 14 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Multimedia Room at Dalton Center on WMU’s campus. Members of the public are welcome to observe this special master class event.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, which is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts with additional contributions from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
