Local Dance Commissioning Project awardee Maverick Lemons debuts his new work highlighting the strengths of President John F.

Serving a total of 1,036 days in office, Kennedy was often called the “President of a Thousand Days.” Titled On the Brink, the work will be a celebration of JFK’s successes, a comparison to contemporary events, and a moment of questioning.
