Bare Bait Dance is Western Montana’s home for professional dance! Now in our 6th Season here in Missoula, we pride ourselves on producing fresh new dance-works by local choreographers and guest professionals in conjunction with an all-star group of Montanan collaborators (musicians, film-makers, visual artists and more!). For this year’s First Night celebration, BBD will showcase a variety of new works including excerpts from BBD’s upcoming company productions, “Surge” and “Hysteria.” In addition, we will give First Night revelers sneak-peaks from our new, original video subscription series, Kinetoscope Online. Directed by Joy French and Kelly Bouma and performed by the BBD company of seven professional Montanan dancers, this concert is particularly crafted for its celebratory, family-friendly, New Year’s Eve enjoyment!
