The show will be presented on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 7:30pm at the Ware Center, 42 N. Prince Street, Lancaster.

NetCo Dance Company strives to embody the dynamic qualities of real life and bring them to the stage in every performance. Berlet’s artistic focus often revolves around women- their hardships, their power, their relationships, and the politics and societal influences that shape who they are and who they will become. Empowerment, equality, and hope resonate through many of Berlet’s dances, and consequently, some of NetCo’s most inspired work has been featured at local fundraisers and charity events. NetCo also invites local dance studios and youth groups to perform in many of their community shows, giving aspiring young dancers the opportunity to be a part of a professional production. NetCo has performed original works throughout Pennsylvania over the last decade and continues to produce concerts annually.
