Formerly known as United Prospects, who won 2nd place in the Team Division at the 2018 World Of Dance competition in Arizona, Primitive Dance Company is holding this showcase of their progressing talent as a fundraiser to help them continue forward in their mission to continue to grow and expand as a vibrant creative and educational outlet for Tucson's youth.

Director Cristian David Barajas started Primitive Dance Company to provide an environment for youth to have a platform to advocate for the importance of the arts as a positive creative focus for their lives and their community.  Primitive Dance Company hopes to inspire more culture and support of the arts in the city of Tucson, giving teens and young adults a healthy form of artistic personal expression to channel their energy in productive, positive, life-affirming artistic endeavors. 

Barajas is creating more than just a dance company.  Primitive Dance Company is God-centered, promotes moral values, and participants feel a sense of family and belonging.  Many call the squad their "second family" says Barajas.  The vision of Primitive Dance Company is big and this fundraiser will help towards building that vision which includes acquiring a studio to provide a variety of arts besides dance; providing mentorships and assistance to members who need help with school or education; travel, registration fees, and uniforms for participation in upcoming World Of Dance events around the country, and more. 

Don't miss this showcase of modern dance featuring more than 2 dozen performers sharing a variety of exciting, fresh, inspired dance routines straight outta Tucson!

Louis Colaiannia & Friends
Saturday, Jun 15, 2019
Event Begins at 8:00 PM

Colaiannia, a known and loved for his New Age concerts in Tucson, will be performing his first jazz rock concert in Tucson backed by some of Tucson’s finest musicians – Bobbi Elias on bass, Dan Griffin on guitar, Mike Moynahan on saxophone, Burt Shur on drums, and Joey Glassman on vibraphone.


Louis Colaiannia is a Denver Colorado based classically trained composer and pianist.  He tours internationally and has performed at Carnegie Hall and The Grand Ole Opry, as well as with Grammy Award winning founder of Windham Hill Records, Will Ackerman and multi Grammy nominated, Liz Story.  His album “Closer” went to #1 on the One World Music Top 100 Radio Chart in 2016 and his jazz single Obsession was #1 on the Berkshire Media Group radio chart in 2017.


Colaiannia has won numerous awards including three Global Music Awards, Jazz Artist of the Year Akademia Music Award, TMT Music Award for Music Composer of the Year 2017, two Primo Awards for Entertainer of the Year, Enlightened Piano Award for Lifetime Achievement, Best Jazz Album 2017, and Holiday Album of the Year 2016 to name a few.


His concerts have been called “stunning’ in their power in beauty.  Will Ackerman wrote that “his control of subtlety and nuance is a revelation” and “that Louis Colaiannia is a brilliant pianist is an obvious statement; akin to ‘the sun is warm’ in terms of room for debate.”  


Ackerman also wrote, “There’s a certain muscularity to Louis Colaiannia’s piano playing.  While he’s quite capable of introspection, the power and energy that Louis brings to the instrument is palpable.  Even in the most gentle and elegant passages of his composition (of which there are many), one feels the physicality of his performance.  This balancing act between the beauty of his melodies and the sense of strength that he brings to the keyboard is a rare combination in the New Age realm.  His compositions are elegant and heartfelt.”


Doors open at 7:30pm; Show starts at 8:00pm.

Tickets are: $13 advance / $18 at the door for ages 12 & up.

Ages 5-11 = $5

Guilherme Arantes
"King of Brazilian Pop"

Event Begins at 7:00 PM

SHOW BRAZIL PRODUCTIONS and Sea Of Glass—Center Of The Arts present the legendary Brazilian composer and keyboard player Guilherme Arantes for the first time in Tucson.

Guilherme Arantes is amongst the most talented and successful Brazilian musicians of the last decades, a 'hitmaker' as they say in the slang of the musical media. 

A rare phenomenon, Guilherme appeals to the public and the critics, with a universal pop sound, but always influenced by styles of MPB (Música popular brasileira).  Guilherme Arantes is one of the few Brazilian pianists to join the Hall of Fame of the secular German-American manufacturer, Steinway & Sons, being in the company of names such as Guiomar Novaes, Franz Liszt, George Gershwin, Billy Joel, and Duke Ellington. 

His career blossomed during the mid-70s, and he has contributed decisively also to the success of Pop Brazil and New Wave.  He achieved second place during the Shell Festival in 1981 with the beautiful song Planeta Agua (Planet Water). 

Over time, in addition to building a solid career of personal successes, 'King of the FM,' Guilherme Arantes songs hit on stellar voices of MPB, such as Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethnia, Nando Reis, Elis Regina, Roberto Carlos, Gal Costa, Belchior, and MPB4.  Not bad for anyone who assumes that he just wanted to sing and cheer the audience with his songs. 

His influence is cited by artists from the most recent generations of Brazilian music, such as Mano Brown, Vanessa da Mata, Marcelo Jeneci, Tulip Ruiz, Curumin, Ceu and Bruna Caram, Tiago Iorc. 

In 2008, he was included by Rolling Stone Brasil as one of the 100 Greatest Artists of Brazilian music at all times.  The following year, the same magazine also considered his first success 'Meu Mundo e Nada Mais' as one of the 100 greatest Brazilian songs of all times, and includes the singer in 3 of the 100 Greatest moments in the history of the music of Brazil, classifying him as 'the Brazilian pop master.'

Most recently, Guilherme Arantes released a new CD called Flores e Cores (Flowers and Colors).  As he himself describes this album: “it is a sunny album with fun lyrics, pop style and a vintage sound that crosses all the boundaries for people who enjoy great music in addition to my traditional fans.”
