Corbin Foundation supports dance


Dancers from UA's Dance Institute

The Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation brings Akron’s storied past to life through the Dance Institute’s 2021 production of the NutcrAKR. With the Corbin Foundation’s underwriting, this NutcrAKR production will highlight the sights, sounds and landmarks of 1950’s Akron through dance performance. It involves 3D film projections, and non-fictional characters who have influenced the city’s history. This innovative production will include new video technology called Projector Mapping; artwork designed by students in the Myers School of Art.

The DI will partner with the Akron Public Schools, the Akron Symphony Orchestra and Akron Youth Symphony and the Neos Dance Theatre. The UA performance has been scheduled for December 2021, however rehearsals are tentatively slated to begin later this fall.
