Los Angeles dance company BodyTraffic to perform at Notre Dame

Dean Martin songs like “That’s Amore” play as three men in the Los Angeles dance company BodyTraffic perform solo in a “really fun and light” piece, Artistic Director Tina Finkelman Berkett says, that could connect with audiences who aren’t savvy about dance .

“I try to offer music as an in (to dance),” she says from a tour stop in Beaver Creek, Colo. “Some people have a knowledge of music or some experience of music. And most people have limited knowledge of dance.”

You’ll also find a bit of comedic theater in three out of the four pieces that BodyTraffic will bring, she says, in roughly 90-minute performances Feb. 11-12 at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. It’s the spring season opener for DeBartolo’s Presenting Series, set in the 350-seat Decio Theatre.
