SHALEIGH DANCE WORKS celebrates their commission by DURHAM MAGAZINE for TASTE 2019‘s 6-Course Southern Feast Dinner
We had an incredible experience creating 6 new dances tailored to a 6 course meal with this taste bud extravaganza which offered an edible exploration of Southern food heritage celebrating global influences. All six courses highlighted the different ethnic elements that define our Southern food palate today. The diverse menu and sources of inspiration for each dance came from a wide variety of chefs including Littler, Vimala, Saltbox, Washington Duke, Goorsha, and The Parlor. Signature cocktails were provided by KingFisher and Durham Distillery along with feasting tables and our commissioned performances that made this an evening to remember. It was an honor to work with these master chefs and for our company to receive a standing ovation.
This event was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
