Professional, Contemporary Dance Takes the Stage
at the Box Factory on June 22


CPR Dance: Inhale Movement, Southwest Michigan’s premiere contemporary-dance company, will bring its dynamic style of movement to the Box Factory for the Arts on Saturday, June 22, from 7-9 p.m.


The dance company was founded in 2022 with the belief that movement is as fundamental to existence as breath. It entered its third season with a performance titled “Eupnea,” which means quiet breathing. Dancers will present a new collection of work including “They Gathered” by CPR Dance founder Carolyn Pampalone Rabbers, which delves into the implications of femininity while examining interconnected themes like birth and death. Also featured are a dance choreographed by Ashley Deran and Emily Loar of Chicago-based Project Bound Dance, and a new work created by guest choreographer Sayiga Eugene Peabody, among other works.


Based in Stevensville, Mich., CPR Dance is made up of more than a dozen professional dancers who have extensive experience in performing, teaching, and choreographing. The company strives to broaden community access to professional dance while sharing collaborative opportunities to view and participate in movement. See more at

The Box Factory for the Arts is located at 1101 Broad St. in St. Joseph, MI.
