Terpsicorps' 15th Season, in collaboration with local divas Leeda Jones of Lyric and Stephanie Morgan formerly of stephaniesid, brings you a spectacular evening of dance, live music and inspiration.  The unconventional professional ballet company that delights Asheville with vivid cutting-edge dance is known for works that embrace the struggle, depth and beauty of the human experience.

Choreographer Heather Maloy, like so many of us out there today, sees the need to build bridges within our increasingly divided society.  Moments of shared experience that create hope for the future and foster a feeling of unity are rare and monumentally important.  Together We Soar is being created as a testament to the power of women and will focus on what we think of as feminine attributes. Love, compassion, inclusivity, determination; these qualities will be brought to life through the music and artistic abilities of the performers.
