HerStory, a journey of the waves of feminism brings “monumental moments in 'herstory' to life. Watch the layers unfold as we portray the struggles and triumphs faced throughout the decades in a dynamic series of movement matched with time period costuming, music, and film. Our passionate dancers wear many hats, bringing to life key figures, including the unyielding Suffragists, our own NOLA Sazerac Stormers, the role reversing Rosie the Riveters, groovy 'bra burners’ who fought to pass legislation to secure women's rights, and more. Of course, we now emphasize the strength of a modern new wave that will break that glass ceiling. After all, 'women's rights are human rights', and 'there is no true peace without justice and equity for all'!” 
There will be a dynamic ‘talk back’ with the dancers and audience after each performance.
