Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. In this raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their POWER. 

Winner of the Relentless award, the Susan Smith Blackburn prize, and finalist for the Pulitzer prize. All the young dancers are to be played by actors of a range of ages from their 20s to their 80s. This in turn uproots time, allowing us to see these bodies onstage both as the women these girls will become and the girl that is still somewhere inside them.

Directed by Whitney Thomas Eads

Featuring: Drew Eberly, Brian Gray, Wilma Hatton, Alanna Rex, Mary Sink, Elena Perantoni, Acacia Duncan, Dalia Natour, Susie McGarry
