Giordano Dance Company will present an American debut at their spring engagement at The Harris Theatre March 27 through 29th. “The Only Way Around is Through” was choreographed by company member Joshua Blake Carter, with concept and structure by Nan Giordano.

There are six pieces in the program including ones choreographed by Emmy Award- winner Mia Micheals (“So You Think You Can Dance”), Liz Imperio whose extensive staging and choreographing credits include Jennifer Lopez, Cher, and Madonna and many more, and a piece performed by the full company by Ray Leeper, an award-winning choreographer on “So You Think You Can Dance” and “America’s Got Talent”. There is an intimate fundraising reception at the Radisson Blue Aqua from 9:30 to 11:00. Tickets are available at giordanodance.org
