Last week, Michael Miller of Wellspring: Cori Terry & Dancers did a run through of his choreography called “Crackers in Bed.” The dancers posed to recreate familiar Norman Rockwell paintings and then transitioned to the next scene to the tune of a modern DJ.

Miller will premiere the dance at this year’s Midwest Regional Alternative Dance Festival also known as RAD Fest.

The festival will take place Thursday through Saturday at the Wellspring Theatre in Kalamazoo's Epic Center.
