Scorpius Dance Theatre is bringing back its third choreographer’s showcase, Kick-A Showcase, Jan. 12-14, 2017 at Phoenix Little Theatre’s Hormel Theatre. Kick-A not only highlights the performance ablities of Scorpius’ dancers, but it spotlights their creative talents as choreographers. The show features original works created by many of Scorpius’ dancers, as well as several new and returning pieces by Director, Lisa Starry. 
 
“Each time we’ve presented the Kick-A Showcase we’ve received a tremendous response, with sold out houses and enthusiastic crowds. There’s so much amazing talent within the Scorpius’ family, and the Kick-A Showcase provides our dancers an outlet for showing off their work,” says Starry.
 
Not an average repertory production, Kick-A promises genius dance compositions and stellar stage performances. In additon to featuring new choreography from many Scorpius members, half of the production will showcase popular works from past Scorpius productions, as well as three brand new dances by Starry. The Kick-A Showcase is inspired by Los Angeles and New York City’s “The Carnival: Choreographers Ball.” Starry required each dancer to audition their works in order to identify the choreographers who can bring the right energy, technical skill, and their own unique sense of style to Kick-A. As audiences have come to expect from Scorpius’ productions, Kick-A gives choreographers an opportunity to express their creativity by combining mainstream dance, popular music, and more for an upbeat, highly energetic show that appeals to dance enthusiasts and those experiencing the art form for the first time.
 
The Kick-A Showcase will take place Jan. 12-14 at 7:30 p.m. at Phoenix Theatre’s Hormel Theatre: 100 E. McDowell Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85004. Tickets start at $25, plus surcharge.
