The Pennington Dance Group is an LA-based modern dance company headquartered right here in Pasadena. PDG’s namesame and artistic director, John Pennington, spent 14 years with the Bella Lewitzky Dance Company, which is a big deal. Pennington is teaming up with another Lewitzky disciple, Yolande Yorke-Edgell and the Yorke Dance Project. Together, they’re presenting a program inspired by their mutual mentor. Each troupe will perform a piece individually—PDG’s is called is called Yield of Vision (it has fancy, “non-traditional” lighting), YDP’s is City Limitless (it’s about Jack Kerouac)—followed by a collaborative piece, receiving its world premiere: Overlay. This one’s for you, modern dance fans.
