    The Arizona Republic 2014 Critics’ Pick:
    Best alternative to Cirque du Soleil

    With shows such as the fashion-inspired “Catwalk” and the annual “A Vampire Tale” — dubbed “the ‘Nutcracker’ of Halloween” — choreographer Lisa Starry’s company is inspired more by MTV than Martha Graham. And it has built an enthusiastic young audience by specializing in Cirque-style aerial dance, on ribbons and the lyra hoop. It even has opened its own aerial studio to teach aspiring acrobats the fundamentals of an athletic, spectacular craft.

    Best Contemporary Dance Collective Phoenix 2012

    Before you try a few new moves, you’ll want to take some notes from the pros. And while the footwork choreographed by Lisa Starry for her Scorpius Dance Theatre might be a little much to take to the club, every step, bend, lift, and stretch performed by her dancers would be guaranteed to get you a double take — given you can pull ’em off.

    Best Contemporary Dance Company Phoenix 2010

    Most contemporary dance companies are either boring to watch or so bizarre that you practically need subtitles to interpret a performance. That’s why we love Scorpius Dance Theatre, a local troupe known for mixing graceful moves and humorous interludes in a way that makes dance accessible to the average Joe.
