Dance CHAD TAYLOR: Persistence

An uplifting story of struggle

Persistence is based around a duet originally created by Chad Taylor and Natasha Gooden. The narrative of the piece takes the audience on an exciting journey of struggle, while remaining strong and having the strength to carry on, through all they come across in life, right through to the end.
