"don't wanna dance with ghosts...", by TS Hawkins, is a choreopoem experience of how past poisons taint the future when love strips the mind of closure. On the night before Jaye attempts to marry "the one", she struggles with a lingering past wrought with unfinished goodbyes and doubt for the one thing everyone else seems to understand; love.
Sabriaya Shipley, Briyana D. Clarel, Maria Beltre, and Tanesha M. Ford
