Top 5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Weekend

Genesis Dance Project at Tempe Center for the Arts They say dance is the universal language of the world. So it makes sense to celebrate the New Year by bringing together some of Arizona's best emerging and professional dance companies. Representing a diversity of dance genres, artists and companies will perform works from their current repertoires at Desert Dance Theater's Genesis Dance Project.

Featured dancers and companies were selected for the festival by a panel of judges and include Dulce Dance Company, Terpsicore Dance Company, and Movement Source Dance Company. Junk Funk, which blends percussion and movement arts by making music with the body and recycled objects, will bring some beats to the showcase, and Chandler's Conversion Dance Project will present "Adrift," a solo project from artistic director Crystal Lewis and freelance dance artist Katie Wiegman.
