— The dance company founded by Johanna LjungQvist-Brinson (Hanna Q) is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a performance in New York City.

"We will be performing both existing repertory and some that is being choreographed just as this is being written," said LjungQvist-Brinson, a Swedish-born-and-raised artistic director and choreographer who now lives in Milford. "It will be a very special evening!"

It begins with a gala anniversary reception, with drinks and snacks, at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14, in the upstairs bar at Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie St., New York, N.Y.

The performance by the Hanna Q Dance Company begins at 6 p.m. downstairs on the main stage. It will include four or five of LjungQvist-Brinson's works, including the premiere of two new pieces. It will last about an hour and 15 minutes and includes a short intermission.

The performance will include her pieces titled "Portals of Power" and "Threat to Freedom and Democracy."

Tickets for both the reception and performance cost $30, or $20 for the performance alone. Students pay $15.

Hanna Q Dance is an energetic company that performs contemporary-modern dance. LjungQvist-Brinson founded the company in May 2013. She and her daughter Lovisa LjungQvist-Brinson, also an accomplished dancer, established the first DanceFest Milford back in May.

During each performance, the company sweeps the audience into a different world, one that is full of emotion. The audience gets lost in the movement, the music, the lighting, and the interactions among dancers.

The choreography includes technically rigorous, acrobatic movements derived from LjungQvist-Brinson’s background in the Dunham technique.

The company has performed mostly in New York City, including Dixon Place, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Dance Festival, TADA! Theater, The Actors Fund Arts Center, Green Space, New York Live Arts, The Triskelion Arts, and West End Theater.
