Sheri “Sparkle” Williams has been a star dancer with the legendary Dayton Contemporary Dance Company for nearly 40 years – a record virtually unheard of in the professional dance community. Ms. Williams is one of the few dancers outside of New York to be honored with the prestigious Bessie Award for Individual Performance. She has worked Merce Cunningham, Bill T. Jones, Bebe Miller, and her mentor, Jeraldyne Blunden. However, when the powerhouse dancer suffers her first serious injury, she faces the question – does she have the will it will take to return to the stage, as her 50th birthday approaches.
Director Julia Reichert and performer Sheri Williams will attend the screening.
