Carina Nebula

In partnership with the Tennessee Arts Commission and inspired by the recent findings from the James Webb Space Telescope, we brought together artists in various stages of their development. From stellar nurseries to individual stars, we amplified the work of over twenty youth, community, and professional dancers from Nashville and beyond.
