From snagging the cover of Dance Magazine to being featured in The New York Times, Trey McIntyre Project has whirled through the world of modern dance like a talented Tasmanian devil. Artistic Director Trey McIntyre has a choreographic acumen, almost a sixth sense, that has changed how both industry insiders and outsiders view the art form. The TMP dancers bring their years of classical training to the table but are willing to leave it there at times to embrace contemporary, inventive moves. The combination of McIntyre's innovative vision and the dancers' precise yet intrepid execution makes TMP's Best of Boise win no surprise. We wouldn't even raise an eyebrow if they won a Best of Birmingham, Boston or Bulgaria poll.
