On Saturday, May 10 at 8 p.m. Founders Brewing Company will present Trip the Light, a Dance in the Annex (DITA) production, this year titled "Kiss the Sky."

This marks the fifth and final year of Trip the Light.

"We have had such a wonderful time producing the show over the years and we feel like we have made a real impact on Grand Rapids as dance artists," says Amy Wilson, DITA founder and artistic director. 

Wilson expresses the connections that have been made between DITA, other artists and the audience as an enourmous experience. She says that the dancers have reached a point though, where they need to evolve and grow into something new, and that time is now. 

"The most valuable and meaningful take away from doing this event is the relationships that have come from working so intensely with the other artists involved. I cannot express my gratitude enough. It has been a wild ride from day one. And I am a better person because of them," says Wilson. 

Kiss the Sky is a modern dance-based performance involving collaborations with local musicians and artists of various disiplines to produce a unique one night only performance. 

Presale tickets are available online.
