The Peter London Global Dance Company (PLGDC), Miami’s iconic contemporary dance company, returns to St. John’s on the Lake on April 7 for Miami Beach Global Dance Night. Set in the beautiful and intimate St. John’s on the Lake church, the program celebrates the high-octane and visceral energy of dance and music from North and South America, Africa, and the Caribbean, transformed by contemporary and classical dance techniques into a virtuosic show of raw human physicality and passion.
