Name: Kathleen Hahn
Hometown: Greensboro, NC
Describe your dancing self in three words: addicted, want more of it, need more please now (is that more than three words?)
Unknown fact about yourself: Steve Martin and I were lovers in a past life.
Inspiring female in your life and why: Right now it’s Jo Weldon, headmistress of the NY School of Burlesque, because she is so passionate about Burlesque and it’s history without forcing it to be a certain way now. She encourages every performer to recreate Burlesque, make it their own and be completely unapologetic with every wacky, taboo, sexy filled idea they have.
Why folks should see Ladle Weiss: Because artists like Lindsey are rare! And if you have not experienced the mastery of movement and story telling that Lindsey Kelley Dance is all about than it’s ridiculous how much you’re missing out! I’m not just saying that! Plus I’m going to be in town ya’ll! And I miss you, and hope you can come say hi and support the show!
Bet you can’t guess which one is Kathleen :)

Janice Lancaster Larsen’s new short work, eidetic, with music by Asheville artists Chris Stack and Alina Quu, draws upon both hazy and crystalline aspects of memory that are peculiar to recalling.
