Minnesota Dance Theatre's intriguing spring concert features new pas de deux by Martine Van Hamel, formerly an American Ballet Theatre principal dancer, and Adam Hendrickson, formerly with the New York City Ballet, as well a signature work by MDT's founder, Loyce Houlton. The concert will be something of a family affair, with a new work by current artistic director Lise Houlton (Loyce's daughter) and performances by Lise's incredibly accomplished daughters, Kaitlyn Gilliland (who danced with the New York City Ballet) and Raina Gilliland (a graduate of the School of American Ballet). Also on the program is "Toccata in D Minor" by Alonso King, artistic director of LINES, and one of the most sought-after choreographers in the country. (Photo by Brianna Bland)
