Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre will be putting on their black box style dance show, “UNPLUGGED,” each weekend this month.

Hancock has created more than 130 works for his company since 1997, when he founded the Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre. In this time he has put on such shows as “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” and “SUPERHERO.”

Hancock has also been honored with numerous awards for his work, including Master Artist Fellowships from the Indiana Arts Commission, as well as being named Outstanding Choreographer at the prestigious Youth American Grand Prix in New York City. He has also traveled to countries, such as India, to study music and dance. Despite his numerous accolades and accomplishments in the field of music and dance, Hancock remains very humble.

He even said, “I prefer to talk about my amazing company more than myself.” This mindset has helped him to continue to grow his business and put on such acclaimed dance theatre performances.

“UNPLUGGED” is presented in a very relaxed and personal atmosphere. It is designed for a smaller audience and audience members are able to enjoy refreshments along with the performance.

“The experience of dance in a more intimate setting provides audience members with a fresh insight and appreciation of dance,” Hancock said.

The show will be performed at 7 p.m. Feb. 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21 and at 3 p.m. Feb. 8, 15, 22. The show will be held at the Academy of GHDT at 329 Gradle Dr., Carmel.
