Dear Friend and Patron of the Arts,

Desert Dance Theatre will present LEGACY: 35th Anniversary Celebration and Tribute to Marion Kirk Jones at the Tempe Center for the Arts Studio on Thursday-Friday, June 12-13, 2014 at 7:30pm. A fundraising reception will follow directly after the show each night.

LEGACY, a celebration and reunion for Desert Dance Theatre, will present 35 years of past and current repertory as well as remembering highlighted moments about the company’s accomplishments presented live and on video. LEGACY is also a Tribute to Marion Kirk Jones who passed away on April 4, 2014, almost one month shy of her 93rd birthday. She was a vital part of Desert Dance Theatre since its beginnings in 1979. Part of this program will be dedicated to Marion’s Celebration of Life as friends, family and colleagues share memories.
