IN COMPETITION

After the swirl of experience, you will find that you have accomplished a dance of your own. Melissa Painter and her key collaborators have crafted a multidimensional experience that lets you chase dancers around a pool and on stage, scale through a labyrinth of stunning architecture, and even reach out and hold the dancers in the palm of your hand.
