“Wohali,” the newest work by Exhale Dance Tribe’s artistic directors Missy Lay Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard, is also a Cherokee word for eagle, and the culmination so far of the pair’s ongoing collaboration with New Zealand’s Okareka Dance Company.

“Wohali,” the newest work by Exhale Dance Tribe’s artistic directors Missy Lay Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard, is also a Cherokee word for eagle, and the culmination so far of the pair’s ongoing collaboration with New Zealand’s Okareka Dance Company. It’s also what the two have named their program Saturday at the Aronoff Center.

Wohali is rounded out with other featured choreography by local talent Katie Farry, Sarah Emmons and Jennifer Rutherford, but it’s the namesake performance that takes top billing. Read more about the performance here.


Exhale Dance Tribe presents Wohali at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Aronoff Center. More info: cincinnatiarts.org.
