Aerial CLT steals the show at Wine and Dance (Video)

I took She Who Shall Not Be Named to Wine and Dance 2015 at the Chop Shop on Friday. She looked puzzled as we drifted toward the stage where black-clad modern dancers performed. Puzzled, she looked at me and said, "I thought we were drinking wine and dancing!"

I laughed. We can do that any night at any bar. Wine and Dance 2015 by Charlotte Choreographers was special. We watched as dancers from seven dance companies performed seven works. Each performance was paired with a different wine sample meant to complement the show. Although, the wine server laughingly admitted that some of the pairings, ok most, were likely arbitrary.

The audience didn't seem to mind. And She Who Shall Not Be Named enjoyed the wine and the dance.
