Urbanity Dance has a new home
Urbanity Dance, which has been growing by leaps and bounds since its founding just a few years ago. Led by the intrepid and (almost scarily) organized Betsi Graves, Urbanity has consistently impressed with both their artistic program and their savvy approach to building a new company. Hot off a successful appearance at Jacob's Pillow this summer, the troupe has just now announced another landmark in its development: Urbanity is opening a new home. No photos of the new studio are yet available, but you can check it out this Sunday, Sept. 25, when Urbanity cuts the ribbon on the space at 280 Shawmut Avenue in the South End. There's a day-long program of free activities planned, from yoga to kids' classes to funk improvisation. And you can even nab some discounts on dancewear. Full details here.
