The Ferst Center for the Arts at Georgia Tech continues its dance series with a performance by Doug Varone and Dancers at 8 p.m. Saturday.

The performance will be followed by Dance Dialogues, a free post-performance audience discussion led by Ferst Center Director George Thompson. Dance Dialogues gives audience members the opportunity to meet the dance company and learn more about the performance they have just seen.

The 2010-11 season marks Doug Varone and Dancers' 24th year. Since its founding in 1986, the company has commanded attention for its expansive vision, versatility and technical prowess. On the concert stage, in opera, theater and on screen, Varone's kinetically thrilling dances make essential connections and mine the complexity of the human spirit.

The company has performed in more than 100 cities in 45 states across the U.S. and in Europe, Asia, Canada and South America. In opera and theater, the company regularly collaborates on many Varone-directed or choreographed productions that have been produced around the country.

Varone, his dancers and designers have been honored with 11 New York Dance and Performance Awards (Bessies).

The Ferst Center dance series will continue with Nrityagram Dance Ensemble on March 27 at and Jonah Bokaer on April 2, both at 8 p.m.
