St. Louis Dance Festival 

The St. Louis dance community suffered a great loss when Dr. B.N. Premachandra, the president of Dances of India, passed away in December. Dr. Prem was an ardent supporter of all forms of dance for the simplest reason: he loved the joy it brought to people. His pet project was the St. Louis Dance Festival, which unites companies from across the metro area for two evenings full of every kind of dance, from folk to hip-hop. This year's installment is dedicated to Dr. Prem and takes place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (May 8 and 9) at the Edison Theatre on Washington University's campus (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or www.dancesofindiastlouis.org). Guest companies include Metro Dance Company, Slaughter Project, Ashleyliane, Collective Motion and Diva La Tap. Tickets are $15 to $25. Go and enjoy yourself -- it's what Dr. Prem wanted.
Fri., May 8, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 9, 8 p.m., 2015
