Review for Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company and School , St Paul, MN, USA
I was certainly one of those people who was lucky enough to have Out on a Limb fall into my life. Circa 2006, I had recently graduated from high school, and subsequently graduated from 15+ years of time in a competitive dance studio. I wanted to keep dancing, but was not sure how to transition from the "learn a dance", perform it for competition, do the recital, etc. lifestyle. Mix that with starting college, and I wasn't sure if dance was part of my future. OOAL 100% changed how I saw dance. I slowly became a better performer, technician and found the joy that I had long been missing. There is a definite paucity of opportunities for young adults in the Twin Cities outside of majoring in dance, or diving into a contract. I fully appreciate that OOAL has been flexible with me, allowing me to have more or less involvement based on my career, life, injuries and needs without berating or repercussions. This is truly a community that I am so lucky to have. The above doesn't even start to do justice to what OOAL brings to the community at large or the younger people who walk through the doors. Inclusive, nurturing, age-appropriate, flexible, humble, loving, multi generational and creative come to mind.
