Behind the scenes: A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football

Game day! After a pre-show camera call for A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football, we had an opportunity to sit down with four of the dancers from Norway’s Jo Strømgren Kompani. The dancers, who have been part of over 200 performances, discussed how they got involved with the piece, the extent of their actual football-playing abilities and more.

The piece, which makes it’s next stop in Rezekne, Latvia, was definitely a “score” with opening night fans.
