Winifred Haun & Dancers returns to Unity Temple on May 5 & 6 to present The Light in Spring: Dance & Music at Unity Temple. This will be the Company’s third appearance at Frank Lloyd Wright’s celebrated architectural masterpiece.
The Light in Spring will feature a group work for the entire Company, choreographed by Winifred Haun.
