The Cowles Center has been a long time coming, with efforts to renovate the old Shubert building spanning twelve years.
But finally, this fall, the new center for dance and the performing arts will open to the public, and it's just revealed the details of the inaugural season.
Some acts are no surprise - James Sewell Ballet, Minnesota Dance Theatre, and the Illusion Theater - as they've had a longstanding relationship with the Hennepin Center for the Arts and/or the lobbying efforts for the new Shubert.
But it's impressive to see so many different Minnesota dance companies lined up at the same venue. Take a look at who's going to be on stage this season:
Minnesota Dance Theatre
Beyond Ballroom Dance Company
Black Label Movement
Native Pride Dancers
James Sewell Ballet
Mathew Janczewski's Arena Dances
Stuart Pimsler Dance and Theater
Katha Dance Theater
Shapiro and Smith Dance Company
Zenon Dance Company
Buckets and Tap Shoes
Breaking Boundaries Dance Company
The details of the season - and tickets - will be available on the Cowles Center website starting Monday.
