Best Dance Debut 

Thom Lewis Dance

Staff Pick

It's odd to call anything associated with longtime dancer/choreographer Thom Lewis a debut--he's helped found, or worked with, just about every modern-dance company in Tucson in the last generation--but this is the first time he's had a troupe all his own. And it made a spectacular beginning, in a concert devoted half to Lewis' own delicious choreography and half to others' works. Lewis brought back two sterling duets, "Not About You" and "Everlast," and premiered the refreshing "Motion Sickness," a big group work that paired pros with kids during the shows at the UA Stevie Eller Dance Theatre. "Motion Sickness" was Lewis at his best--witty, musical, inventive--and a welcome sign of good things to come.
