Troy McLaughlin’s latest works, S.T.I.L (Stuff that I Like), is a show of fun whimsical dances that define moments in a person’s life from youth to maturity. Inspired by kids TV shows of the 1970s, children’s stories, Disco, Rock & Roll, Funk and Jazz, Troy brings forward stories with historical relevance, but still tied to the now. S.T.I.L. is an entertaining program of dance wrapped around poignant thoughts on the relationships in the world all around us.
