After viewing a performance from Xclaim's opening season, The Columbus Dispatch called Xclaim’s work
"Big...bold...infectiously upbeat...spirited...strong choreography!" - Barbara Zuck
(Program Showcases Strong Choreography, Columbus Dispatch, Sunday October 26th, 2008)

Come witness Xclaim in Action!


Artists of Xclaim & special guest choreographers come together to create an emotive and uplifting collection of new work. Spirituals touches on history and turmoil while dancing a soulful narrative about overcoming hardship and injustice. A timely new favorite. Choreography by Xclaim Artistic Director Mariah Layne French, company veterans J.Shannon Filmore & Kevin Bailey, special guest choreographers Daryse Osborne and Frederick Ocansey, beautifully woven together with live song by Diane Ransom.
