21 Farewell St, Newport, RI   (view map)

A party gets better when you invite a bunch of pals, right? Well, Island Moving Co.’s Great Dance Great Times Great Friends Dance Festival 2013 should provide a wealth of bonhomie. Artistic director Miki Ohlsen has invited eight acclaimed troupes to join forces with her Newporters, led by Houston Metropolitan Dance Company, IMC’s resident guest company for 2013-’14. The HMDC says its goal is “to enhance the quality of life for individuals and society through the instruction and the performance of dance.” That mission is certainly shared by the IMCers. This season’s other friends: Amaranth Contemporary Dance (from Richmond, VA), Lydia Johnson Dance and Anne Zuerner’s Roxane Lola Movement Machine (both from NYC), New York choreographer Bradley Shelver, and Providence artists Michael Bolger, Ali Brodsky, and Heather Ahern’s new company, Aerplaye.
