Movin on up
The performers in the Walnut Creek-based Moving Arts Dance company love to dance—but they don’t get to bust a move for East Bay audiences as often as they’d like to.
Due to the high cost of renting performance spaces like Walnut Creek’s Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts, Moving Arts founder Anandha Ray has had more luck developing sponsorship and exchange programs for performances in faraway cities like Paris, Minsk, Frankfurt, and Cleveland.
Fortunately, East Bay dance fans have three chances to see the acclaimed troupe this summer, as the “Hearts for the Arts” series at the Regional Center pairs Moving Arts with renowned musicians Chris Botti, Earl Klugh, and Craig Chaquico.
Moving Arts performs July 10 and 29 and August 26,
