JULIET AND ROMEO

January 18 – 28, 2017 | DJD Dance Centre

“It will still be recognizable, but not in the traditional way. I find this story to be so seductive, and because it is well known I think that gives us permission to dive into and invent different ideas in or about the story. My hope is that the audience will find delight in the twists and turns we will take in the re-imagining of this passionate and tragic tale.” – Kimberley Cooper

Performed by the DJD Dancers with live music.

Throughout its more than 30-year history, DJD has become well-known throughout Canada and beyond, as one of the only professional dance companies with jazz music and dance as its raison d’etre. DJD has created more than 60 original productions since its inception, many with live music. DJD also runs Calgary’s largest recreational dance school. In the spring of 2016, a wonderful new cultural asset opened in Calgary – the stunning new $26 million DJD Dance Centre.
