"Each piece is a little world," says Cori Terry. That's the phrase that inspired the 2022-23 season of Wellspring/Cori Terry and Dancers, which comes to a close with three concerts this weekend: at 8 pm May 19 and 20 and at 2 pm on May 21 at the Wellspring Theatre.

The Spring Concert features six works for combinations of two to seven dancers. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, choreographers Marisa Bianan and Cori Terry describe the dances and the work that went into them. They say that the whole season has been infused with joy at being together again after the pandemic. Executive director Kate Yancho summarizes the success of RADFest in March, and says there will be a new season preview in September. Bianan, who serves as Wellspring's Dance Academy coordinator, says summer classes will be offered for all ages.

Cara Lieurance is the local host of NPR's All Things Considered on 1021 WMUK and covers local arts & culture on Let's Hear It on 89.9 Classical WMUK weekday mornings at 10 - 11 am.
