Visionary Dance Theatre is based in San Diego, Calif.

This winter Visionary Dance Theatre (VDT) shares its Fifth Anniversary with the concert Perseverance at the Performing Arts Center at Point Loma High School, located at 2335 Chatsworth Blvd, San Diego, CA 92106, at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, January 23 and 24.

Perseverance is a celebration of Visionary’s five years providing dance, music, and theatre to the San Diego community. The work, choreographed by Artistic Director Spencer John Powell, is a chronicle of Visionary’s growth, setbacks, and struggles to exist. It will tell of the beginnings of the opening of a performing arts center in the middle of a deep recession, the heights of its performing artists, its joys and its sadness. It will celebrate the sheer willpower of its members.

January will be 5 years since VDT premiered our first concert “And so we begin…” Visionary for the five years since has seen its students, professional artists, staff, and supporters grow to new heights with grace and love. Joining the dancers of VDT will be Visionary’s own children’s modern dance company Kidz Danz Kompany, the first of its kind in San Diego. These two companies will dance together for the first time in concert. The concert also includes work
co-choreographed by VDT’s own Trixi Agiao and Arthur Huang.

Guest choreographers include Diana Valero (artistic director of DVO Dance Project), Caryn Glass (co-artistic director of [the] movement initiative), and Elyssa Dru Rosenberg (artistic director of isadoraNow).

Advance tickets are $13; general admission is $18.
