One Night Only!!
...
Don't miss this special performance of PURE Reflections: Beauty Reimagined -- http://www.youtube.com/wat​ch?v=aQiRa8yhjjs -- PURE's acclaimed theatrical dance drama exploring body image, self-love and the struggle to come to terms with media-driven beauty standards.

Developed in 2009 by the members of PURE-NYC, a multi-level collective of dancers and musicians who strive to bring change, beauty, and awareness to the world through ancient and modern world dance, PURE Reflections has been performed with different casts of over 25 dancers in NY, CT, Japan and is heading to Taiwan and Florida in the Fall.

Rooted in Middle Eastern dance (bellydance), while taking inspiration from Modern, African, Flamenco, Butoh and other dance forms, PURE Reflections: Beauty Reimagined is visually stunning, poignantly touching, and deeply thought provoking.

Audiences have praised this show as “amazing and unique,” and raved: “I was hypnotized … and brought to a sincere enlightenment. It was beautiful, intelligently provocative ... enthralling and impressive.”

Rebecca Rafelson, Vice-President of NOW NY cheers, "It is truly impressive what a positive impact this program has had on so many women's lives. You are all an inspiration!"
