Event Details

Kinetics Dance Theatre continues its 35thAnniversary Season with Rooted, Winged, at 8pm on Saturday, May 11that the Baltimore Museum of Art’s Meyerhoff Theatre.  



Ellicott City, MDRooted, Winged unveils a compelling collection of new work and returning repertory celebrating Kinetics’ long history in Maryland with the return of alumni dancers and choreographers.  Through a rich program of professional modern dance, artists Betsy Romer, Ken Skrzesz, Rick Southerland, George Winchell, and Artistic Director Lauren Tait tell stories spanning connectedness and isolation, grief and beauty. 

Former Kinetics Artistic Director and current Executive Director at Maryland State Arts Council

Ken Skrzesz premiers The Anatomy of Trust, a soaring group work set jointly on Kinetics’ professional and apprentice companies:  according to Dr. Brene Brown, trust is created when we set boundaries, show up as reliable with, and accountable for, our actions, hold confidences with integrity, and are generously non-judgmental. The Anatomy of Trust embodies these concepts against a contemporary choral score that speaks to what we leave behind as we evolve. Former Kinetics dancer/choreographer Betsy Romer returns to set her piece Of What Surrounds Mea trio inspired by the urge to express feelings of joy and gratitude for the blessings found in the natural world and our common, everyday existence. Composer Jennifer Higdon’s passionate, emotionally expressive Piano Trio provides a rich, aural tapestry that supports the development of the dance as the three friends journey into an inner world of imaging, longing and elation.  Lauren Tait premiers a new piece contrasting the rigidly percussive with the unleashed and vital, fusing tap and modern dance.  Tait also debuts the emotionally charged Until Then, a site-specific film piece conceived and produced collaboratively with cinematographer George Winchell. Returning to the program, 

Rick Southerland's Baroque Business bursts forth in an athletic and darkly riveting snapshot of the corporate world. Tait’s Chasm returns as well, taking a penetrating look at division both real and perceived.


Founded in 1984 by Dorothy Fried, Keith Nichols, and Stephanie Simmons, Kinetics Dance Theatre embarked on a mission devoted to the development of contemporary dace as a vital art form within the community through performance, education, and outreach. Thirty-five years later, Kinetics is a vibrant body of artists, educators, learners, and patrons, with three parts work together to form a creative hub.  Its professional company presents conceptually engaging concert work while also devoting a portion of its season to free and low-cost family programming in local theatres, schools, libraries, and community centers.  Its School of Dance emphasizes artistry alongside technique with a core program in modern dance paired with a technical ballet program.  A breadth of offerings in many genres for children, teens and adults, as well for specific populations, bring dance to life for those of all ages and abilities.  Four student performing companies provide dedicated young artists an opportunity for non-competitive in-depth study, exposure to workshops and guest artists, and a wealth of performance opportunities throughout the community.   

Kinetics Dance Theatre receives support from Howard County Arts Council through a grant from the Howard County Government, the Community Foundation of Howard County, Maryland State Arts Council (on the web at, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
