Nationally and internationally acclaimed modern dance companies will take the stage for Florida Dance Association’s third annual WinterFest, Dec. 27-Jan. 28, in various venues throughout Miami and Miami Beach.

For the first time in Florida, the critically acclaimed Kate Weare Company will perform “Bridge of Sighs,” a physically and emotionally charged quartet of women and men, looking at both reckless and wise instincts that drive love; and “Bright Land,” a series of unpretentious dances that speaks to the human experience set to a score of old-time, soulful music by The Crooked Jades, one of the most talked-about string bands in the country. www.kateweare.com
