Antics is a Los Angeles-based hip-hop dance theater Blog 2 Antics_Spotlightcompany that creates multimedia urban dance performances. "Sneaker Suites" utilizes the expressiveness and virtuosity of street dance, as well as provocative poetry to tell the stories of sneakers: of those who make them, those who wear them, and those who dance in them. Partial Funding provided by WESTAF, National Endowment for the Arts, and Washington State Arts Commission.

In conjunction with local partners, Antics is organizing a shoe drive for Soles4Souls.org at all 2016 Sneaker Suites performances. Soles4Souls is a not-for-profit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Antics and the City of Kent encourage you to bring any type of gently worn shoes to donate to Soles4Souls.  With your help, we can provide a life-changing solution: a good pair of shoes!

The Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center is located at Kent-Meridian High School at 10020 SE 256th St., Kent, WA. Free parking is available. Tickets for each event can be purchased online, by calling 253-856-5051 or in person at Kent Commons, 525 4th Ave. North, Kent.
