When the Peter London Global Dance Theater presents its spring showcase this weekend in Little Haiti, it won't be just a group of Miami dancers showing off their moves. It'll be a reflection of the influence of styles from around the world, says founder Peter London.

"Miami is very similar to Trinidad," he explains. "There are people from everywhere. It's like the gateway to the world. That's why I called my company Peter London Global Dance Theater, because Miami represents the globe."

The upcoming showcase combines African, Native American, Caribbean, and European traditions, with London's own unique voice sounding behind it. We spoke with the teacher, choreographer, and dancer about the company, where it came from, and what's coming next.

The Peter London Global Dance Theater performs its Spring Dance Showcase Saturday, May 5, at 6 p.m. at the Little Haiti Cultural Center. Tickets cost $50 - $120. Visit peterlondonglobaldance.org.
