In Performance at the Governor's Mansion
A showcase of Kentucky’s best and brightest performers, featuring music, dance, dramatic readings, poetry, and more.
The Gordon Dance Project

Denise J. Gordon worked as a choreographer, dancer, teacher, and director for such Louisville modern dance companies as Afterimages and Art! Art! Barking Dog Dance Company before forming her own company. For In Performance, the Gordon Dance Project performed “Pavane" as part of “The Kentucky Collage." The piece was choreographed by Gordon with Alan Lommasson, who choreographs and dances with Art! Art! and has received an Al Smith Fellowship in choreography from the Kentucky Arts Council.

Also appearing in “Pavane” is dancer Kara Henderson. Michael Fitzpatrick accompanies on cello.

On the Road to The Kentucky Center
Stellar performances by some of Kentucky’s best performing artists—the Imani Dance and Drum Company, Hog Operation with the Kentucky Cloggers, cellist Michael Fitzpatrick with the Gordon Dance Project, the American Spiritual Ensemble, and the Kentucky Jazz Connection—celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Governor’s Awards in the Arts.
