Shapiro & Smith completed thrilling performances and engaging outreach through an MSAB Arts Tour Grant this year. We partnered with St. Mary’s University Page Theatre, Winona; Shattuck St. Mary’s, Faribault; and The Memorial Theater, Worthington celebrating community and the collective strength of women of all generations. We shared empowering movement ideas with women at local shelters, centers for active seniors, mental health facilities and dance studios.  

Our 2017 Cowles Season was a hit with the premiere of “A Naked Man’s Shirt” and an all-female cast of “Bolero”.  The performance brought audiences to their feet and we were honored to share the performances with real “Women of Valor”, local female fire-fighters, police officers, and emergency room doctors and special guests from the Tubman Centers and The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis.
