Wellspring Revives 'Old World New' And Other Original Dances For Fall Concerts

Gabriel Giron
Wellspring/Cori Terry and Dancers

The six professional dancers of Wellspring/Cori Terry and Dancers will finally present dance in their home space, the Wellspring Theatre, at 8 pm on Nov 19 and 20 and at 2 pm on Nov 21, after a long pandemic absence.

Covid vaccination and testing has made it possible to return to the specially-designed hall with full lighting, costuming, and music. Cara Lieurance spoke to founder Cori Terry and executive director Kate Yancho about the special works Terry's reviving from the 40 year history of the company, as well as newly choreographed dances, featuring music by Red Sea Pedestrians, Philip Glass and more.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
