Steps in the Garden is a dance event that will take a live audience (and later, a live stream audience) on a spectacular journey through the Cheney Mansion garden. The dance is in two parts. The first part includes viewing dances along the new Cheney garden path, and the second features a group work performed in the open garden area.


For the first part, audience members will take a socially distanced stroll, in groups of 8-10, along the garden path, visiting 5 different garden sites. At each site, there will be a brief solo or duet dance performance, choreographed by Company artists. These solos and duets will be an expression and an exploration of the natural area surrounding each site. The garden walk will take approximately 30 minutes.


For the second part, audience members will be seated, in a socially distant fashion, on one side of the open garden area. Audience members will then view an innovative and original group dance choreographed by Winifred Haun, and performed by Company dancers, on the other of the open garden area. This group dance will feature movement designs and patterns inspired by the urban garden setting of Cheney Mansion. This part of the event will be approximately 15 minutes.


All audience members must wear a mask, and keep at least 6-8 feet between themselves and the performers and other audience members.


The entire event will take place outside, and it is 50-60 minutes.
