The company, known for appearing on season 12 of NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’, will present ‘Signs of Strength’ an action-packed show performed by a cast of military veterans and civilian dancers this weekend at Jones Hall.

The finalists from America’s Got Talent Season 12 are coming to H-Town and stopping by Houston Life to catch up with Courtney and Derrick on their latest venture to help former servicemen and servicewomen.

As seen on their amazing run with AGT, they fuse dance, acrobatics, and HUGE moving set pieces. They’ll be performing Signs of Strength here in the H, an amazing and unique piece done in collaboration with the DIAVOLO Veteran’s Project.

The DIAVOLO Veterans Project uses the company’s style of movement as a tool to help restore veterans’ physical, mental, and emotional strengths through workshops and public performances in communities around the country.

On October 14th and 15th, they’ll perform their signature masterpieces, Trajectoire and S.O.S Signs of Strength, at Jones Hall in Houston.

These performances are the culmination of six years of work through the DIAVOLO Veteran’s Project. The action-packed performance will include reflections on their service, their motives for enlisting, and their experience in deployment.
