Manhattanville Alumna Debuts Sans Limites Dance

Diana PettersonAlumna Diana Petterson ’11, co-founder of Sans Limites Dance, will be presenting her fall season at the Secret Theatre in Long Island City, New York.

Sans Limites Dance is a New York City-based company Petterson started in February 2013 with fellow choreographer Richard Cramer. It specializes in concert dance as well as fine art atmospheric performances. The company’s “Moving Sculptures” series has been performed at the Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival, NYC Rooftop Story Movie Premiere & will be performed at Arts East New York Fundraiser Event.

For the fall dance season, which will take place Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16, there will be guest choreographers Charlique Rolle, Janice Rosario and Ayaka Habata. Also, Link! The movement, Arch Contemporary Dance and Community Dance Project will be guest choreographers.

There will be three shows as part of the fall season, one on Friday at 8 p.m. and two on Saturday, 4 and 8 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets visit the event’s webpage.
