Founded by choreographer Lisa Starry in 1999, this contemporary dance troupe has definitely got all the right moves. Scorpius Dance Theater is known for high energy works of dance that can be everything from sexy to humorous and always kick ass. They're known for their annual presentation of “A Vampire's Tale,” which has been compared the ballet “The Nutcracker” – except closely related to Halloween instead of Christmas. Starry also coordinates the Kick-A Choreographers Showcase, which highlights the talents of Arizona and western state dancers and choreographers. The concept is modeled after the highly-acclaimed Choreographer's Carnival.
