Dance embodies a language with differences in vocabulary and pronunciation.

Gadfly instigates a discussion about perspectives through dialects such as: Contemporary, Jazz, Hip hop, Lyrical, Bboying, and House. Artist Directors Apolonia Velasquez and Ofilio Coto, along with accomplished performers, underline how individuals face challenges everyday. How we perceive and respond to situations will shape the journey to one universal common “Unbearable Prospect”. (
