Join us for “Autumn16”, the 2016 ARGA NOVA DANCE festival. The Beckles Dancing Company has handpicked a group of fabulous dance performers to grace the stage at the South Dallas Cultural Center on November 18th & 19th @ 8 PM. The festival will feature a FREE Black Dance film on Saturday 11/19 at 6:30 PM and will showcase performances by: Mary Lois School of Dance Performing Company, Ella Lois Hudson Ensemble, "Character Counts" Company of Featured Soloists, Dallas Youth Repertory Project and of course the Beckles Dancing Company. Dance lovers will experience new works in progress including “12:00” and the return of Benchmarks. The entire concert will be dedicated to the memory of dancer-instructor, Mary Lois Sweatt. She touched many young lives through the art of dance. That was her goal and her mission was accomplished!
