Against the backdrop of a 150-year-old religious and architectural institution, Leverage Dance Theater presents a series of progressive works that explore the meeting of the secular and the sacred, reli challenge preconceptions about relationships, the spaces in which we live, and the human condition.

As part of the concert, audience members will travel with the dancers from place to place, viewing dances specifically tailored to each location. Choreographers for the evening-length concert include: Artistic Director, Diana Barrios; Assistant Director, Keli Hermes; and senior company members Jenny Battenberg and Tricia Zweier and guest artist Lindsay Hawkins.


Due to the unique nature of the concert, space is limited. Audiences are highly encouraged to pre-purchase their tickets. Handicapped and elderly accommodations can be made in advance.

Holy Cross was the second Lutheran church erected on the south side of St. Louis. It began as a school in 1850 and organized as a church in 1858, worshipping in the chapel of Concordia Seminary, which was then located across the street. The setting of the present building, on a hill in a grove of old oaks, retains some of the suburban character it had when the church was first constructed in 1867 on, what was then, the edge of town/h6>

Parking & Entry:
There is a secured parking lot immediately behind the building. Parking lot access is from Ohio, through the alley bordering the South side of the building. Building Entry is on South side of the building from the parking lot.

Audiences should also be prepared to move about in relative darkness, as they travel throughout the building and climb up and down two flights of stairs. Seating throughout the evening will be limited. There is seating available in each performance area, but it is limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
