“BodyTraffic is built from the dancers’ perspective, which sets us apart from other companies around the country,” says Berkett, who still dances with the company. (Barbeito retired from performing in October). “We are curating dance pieces that we want to dance and commissioning works that are enjoyable in the creation process as well as to perform. We’re pushing and challenging dancers to be exposed to new styles and movement vocabulary, and those feed into the versatility of our company.” – BOSTON GLOBE
