ABOUT THE SHOW
Chocolate Dances is a chocolate-making dance company led by choreographer and chocolatier Megan Sipe. The company’s latest show, Wild Women, is based on the watercolor paintings of Sterling Witt. Watch dancers paint the stage with character-driven movement in this bold and enchanting journey, punctuated with delicate flourishes and engaging rhythms.
