With its long-running Once Upon a Ballet Series, New York Theater Ballet consolidates the classics into hour-long productions for the under-10 crowd and puts parents’ minds at ease.” – The New York Times Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker – December 19-21, 2014 New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns for a fourth year of Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker, an enchanting holiday ballet. From clockwork imps to a luminous owl that flies above the audience, mice dressed in polka dots and dancers dancing with huge chopsticks, this timeless, re-imagined classic bursts with energy and excitement. This holiday ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is set in Art Nouveau style circa 1907 with innovative choreography by long-time NYTB choreographer, Keith Michael, and costumes by Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera, Sylvia Nolan. “One of the most kid-friendly around!” – The New York Times Cinderella – February 7-8, 2015 With a Dancing Clock, wacky Stepsisters and everyone’s favorite princess, Cinderella features choreography by Donald Mahler, costumes by Metropolitan Opera’s Resident Costume Designer, Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan and sets by Gillian Bradshaw Smith. Appropriate for girls and boys of all ages. GOOSE! – March 7-8, 2015 The wit, wisdom, and whimsy of a lively baker’s dozen of Mother Goose characters. They literally leap from the page to the stage to stir the imagination of the young and the young-at-heart, just as they have for centuries! Carnival of the Animals – June 6-7, 2015 In a magical forest, Queen Diana and her shaggy lion rule a charming assortment of animals who live more or less peaceably until a pair of lost children wander in, and then the fun begins! Choreography by Beth Storey Taylor. “The most endearing and engaging part of the show happened … during a prelude led by the company’s artistic director, Diana Byer. In an effort to acquaint young audiences with the behind-the-scenes work of putting on a ballet, Ms. Byer invited her animated production manager, Pepper Fajans, to demonstrate the meticulous art of marking the stage to indicate where props and dancers should go. This also served as a basic math lesson, as Mr. Fajans divided the floor into halves and quarters with bits of colored tape. Ms. Byer then ushered out five “dancing examples” (children from New York Theater Ballet’s school) to show how this task helps to organize bodies in a given space. My 8-year-old companion never seemed more enthralled than when other kids her age arrived onstage, dutifully arranging themselves into a diagonal, a triangle, a square. Their simple, swift and spirited performance, more relatable than any fairy tale, was hard to top.” – The New York Times ABOUT NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB), founded in 1978 by artistic director Diana Byer, is the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States and has been hailed by The New York Times as “an invaluable company.” NYTB is dedicated to inspiring a love of dance in diverse audiences through performances of chamber ballet masterpieces and bold new works, as well as innovative one-hour ballets for children, all at affordable prices.

New York City Center will present A Bailar: Dance at the Center, a three-week Latin dance festival featuring three acclaimed dance companies from Cuba, Argentina and Spain, running February 18 – March 7, 2015. The Festival kicks off with the U.S. debut of Havana Rakatan, a celebration of Cuban dance and music, and continues with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, which captures the sultry world of Buenos Aires tango. Voces, Suite Flamenca, a new work from flamenco superstar Sara Baras, closes A Bailar. The Festival’s many free pre-show events include dance lessons and discussion panels that will explore Latin culture through a variety of lenses. Havana Rakatan February 18 – 22, 2015 Performing for the first time in the United States, Havana Rakatan explores the roots of Cuban music and dance, a unique fusion of Spanish culture and African spiritual beliefs, accompanied by the son band Turquino. Flamenco, Yoruba and Afro-Haitian rhythms, as well as jazz, mambo, and son, give way to the modern forms of salsa that originated in the early twentieth-century salon dances. Havana Rakatan made its hugely successful debut in 2007 at the Peacock Theatre in London and has since toured all over the world. Cuban choreographer Nilda Guerra directs a talented and versatile company of dancers, most of whom are graduates of the renowned Escuela Nacional de Arte de la Habana, which combines contemporary dance training with Cuban dance and Latin styles. Havana Rakatan also features the eight-piece Cuban band Turquino, which performs live onstage. Havana Rakatan is presented by New York City Center in association with Sadler’s Wells and Congas Productions. m¡longa February 26 – March 1, 2015 Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sensuality, power and beauty. In m¡longa, celebrated contemporary choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui takes the m¡longa—a social dance evening held in Buenos Aires’ intimate late-night bars—as a starting point and adds a contemporary twist. The production features ten tango dancers, two contemporary dancers, and an Argentinean tango band of five musicians. New York City Center presents Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, a Sadler’s Wells production. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras: Voces, Suite Flamenca March 4 – 7, 2015 Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras’ Voces, Suite Flamenca captures the emotion, drama and passion of traditional flamenco with a vibrant contemporary edge. Celebrated for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence, Baras has become internationally famous in a career that has spanned more than 20 years and earned her dozens of prestigious dance awards. Baras is joined onstage by her company of 15 dancers, including guest artist José Serrano, and eight flamenco musicians. Voces, Suite Flamenca is presented by New York City Center and Flamenco Festival. New York City Center (Arlene Shuler, President & CEO) has played a defining role in the cultural life of the city since 1943. It was Manhattan’s first performing arts center, dedicated by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia with a mission to make the best in music, theater and dance accessible to all audiences. Today, City Center is home to many distinguished companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, City Center’s Principal Dance Company, as well as Manhattan Theatre Club; a roster of renowned national and international visiting artists; and its own critically acclaimed and popular programs. The Tony-honored Encores! musical theater series has been hailed as “one of the very best reasons to be alive in New York.” In summer 2013, City Center launched Encores! Off-Center, a new series featuring landmark Off-Broadway musicals filtered through the lens of today’s most innovative artists. Dance has been integral to the theater’s mission from the start, and dance programs, including the annual Fall for Dance Festival, remain central to City Center’s identity. Vital partnerships with arts organizations including Jazz at Lincoln Center and London’s Sadler’s Wells Theatre enhance City Center’s programmatic offerings. City Center is dedicated to providing educational opportunities to New York City students and teachers with programs such as Encores! In Schools and the Young People’s Dance Series. Special workshops cater to families, seniors, and other groups, while events such as the Fall for Dance DanceTalk series offer learning opportunities for the general public. In October 2011, City Center completed an extensive renovation project to revitalize and modernize its historic theater. Havana Rakatan will play seven performances, February 18-22, as follows: Wednesday, February 18 and Thursday, February 19 at 7:30 pm, Friday, February 20 at 8 pm, Saturday, February 21 at 2 and 8 pm, and Sunday, February 22 at 2 and 7 pm. m¡longa will play four performances, February 26 – March 22, as follows: Thursday, February 26, Friday, February 27, and Saturday, February 28, at 8 pm, and Sunday, March 1, at 2 pm.

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, which captures the sultry world of Buenos Aires tango, will run for four performances at New York City Center from February 26 – March 1, 2015. The production features 10 tango dancers from Buenos Aires, two contemporary dancers from Europe and an Argentinean tango band of five musicians, providing a unique exploration of both traditional and contemporary tango. Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sensuality, power and beauty. Celebrated choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui takes the m¡longa—a social dance evening held in Buenos Aires’ intimate late-night bars—as a starting point and adds a contemporary twist. Rarely has an international large-scale tango production been directed by a non-Argentine artist, and this collaboration provides unique opportunities to explore the traditional dance from another cultural perspective. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is one of the world’s most successful contemporary choreographers. He has been behind some of the most groundbreaking and critically revered works of recent years, working with artists like Akram Khan and Antony Gormley. His award-winning works, such as Sutra, with the monks of the Shaolin Temple, Babel (Olivier Award winner 2011), with Damien Jalet, and his recent collaboration with flamenco dancer Maria Pagés, Dunas, reflect his desire to embrace cultures, languages and new forms of expression. Cherkaoui is an Associate Artist at Sadler’s Wells in London. m¡longa features new music from Argentinean composer Fernando Marzan and Larbi’s long-term musical collaborator Szymon Brzóska, with video and set design by Eugenio Szwarcer and costumes by renowned fashion designer Tim Van Steenbergen. The production combines traditional Argentinean tango aesthetics with absolute state of the art technology.

"The Danny Swain Variety Hour!" will have something for everyone! (except the kids, don't bring the kids - this stuff is rated PG13) You will be entertained by a 50's style musical theatre dance piece, and some hilarious lip-sync numbers, including "Vanilla Ice" and "Aladdin" as well as 2 contemporary dance pieces and a Jazz-Funk Dance piece flavored with a side of Salsa! You will also get a sneak peak at the 9 hilarious characters from Danny's upcoming ONE-MAN-SHOW, which is slated to premier this Fall at the Dance Complex. Each character is more hysterically offensive than the last. Included in the diversified cast (all played by Danny himself) are a closeted, talentless Broadway hopeful named "Jimmy Dazzle", a chain-smoking, washed up Vegas Show-girl, named "Lynette", who now sings like Harvey Fierstein, an Italian Pizza shop owner from the Bronx, "Lou Pimpanelli" who apparently "knows people", and a good Christian woman from the south, "Geogina Hucklebee" who is not to keen on those homosexual types". Other characters include an Asian driving instructor, a nerdy insurance salesman, a drunk, and more.

The U.S premiere of Voces, Suite Flamenca, a new work from flamenco superstar Sara Baras, will run for four performance at New York City Center, March 4 - 7, 2015. Capturing the emotion, drama and passion of traditional flamenco with a vibrant contemporary edge, Sara Baras is joined on stage by her company of ten dancers, including guest artist José Serrano and eight renowned flamenco musicians. Celebrated for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence, Sara Baras has become internationally famous in a career that has spanned more than 20 years and earned her dozens of prestigious dance awards, including Spain’s highest dance honor (National Dance Award), Flamenco Dancer of the Year (Flamenco Hoy), Best Female Performer of Dance by the Association of Flamenco Critics, the National Dance Gold Medal of Andalucía and France’s Medaille de Vermeil de la Villa. Described by The Guardian (London) as a “woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane,” Baras has created and choreographed 11 original evening works and delivered more than 2,500 acclaimed performances with her company all over the world. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras is the final presentation of City Center’s A Bailar: Dance at the Center, a three- week Latin dance festival, running February 18 – March 7. The Festival opens with the U.S. debut of Havana Rakatan, a celebration of Cuban dance and music (February 18– 22), and continues with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, which captures the sultry world of Buenos Aires tango (February 26 – March 1). The Festival’s many free pre-show events include dance lessons and discussion panels that will explore Latin culture through a variety of lenses. Voces, Suite Flamenca is presented by New York City Center and Flamenco Festival. New York City Center (Arlene Shuler, President & CEO) has played a defining role in the cultural life of the city since 1943. It was Manhattan’s first performing arts center, dedicated by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia with a mission to make the best in music, theater and dance accessible to all audiences. Today, City Center is home to many distinguished companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, City Center’s Principal Dance Company, as well as Manhattan Theatre Club; a roster of renowned national and international visiting artists; and its own critically acclaimed and popular programs. The Tony-honored Encores! musical theater series has been hailed as “one of the very best reasons to be alive in New York.” In summer 2013, City Center launched Encores! Off-Center, a new series featuring landmark Off-Broadway musicals filtered through the lens of today’s most innovative artists. Dance has been integral to the theater’s mission from the start, and dance programs, including the annual Fall for Dance Festival, remain central to City Center’s identity. Vital partnerships with arts organizations including Jazz at Lincoln Center and London’s Sadler’s Wells Theatre enhance City Center’s programmatic offerings. City Center is dedicated to providing educational opportunities to New York City students and teachers with programs such as Encores! In Schools and the Young People’s Dance Series. Special workshops cater to families, seniors, and other groups, while events such as the Fall for Dance DanceTalk series offer learning opportunities for the general public. In October 2011, City Center completed an extensive renovation project to revitalize and modernize its historic theater. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras will play four performances, March 4-7, as follows: Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5 at 7:30 pm; Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7 at 8 pm. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased online at www.NYCityCenter.org, by calling CityTix® at (212) 581-1212, or at the City Center Box Office at 131 W. 55th St. (between 6th & 7th Aves).

Combining the classical South Indian dance form Kuchipudi with contemporary techniques, Shantala Shivalingappa dances the solo Akasha (which means “space” or “sky” in Sanskrit) accompanied by four musicians. “It is said that that Akasha originates in sound, which is a vibration, or said another way, a form of energy and movement,” Shantala writes. “This Space is manifested in various ways at different levels of perception. Starting from the space we perceive around us, the space which surrounds us, the space of the universe which contains everything we know (in Indian thought, this Space is the fifth element and completes the four-fold Air, Water, Fire, Earth), and ending in its subtlest form: that of Space beyond space-time.”

Nate Tucker, composer , joins the cast as a collaborator. Expect a few surprises: Peter DiMuro revels in bringing audience from reflection to a good belly laugh. Peter, a long time dance maker who returns to Boston after 20 years touring the world primarily as a performer and artistic director of Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, curates performances that include dance, words, images with the goal of engaging audiences.

At most theatrical performances, audience members are asked to put their cell phones away. But at a show that will open at St. Olaf College in March, audience members will be asked to take their cell phones out — and use them to control the movements of dancers. Theatre Engine is a multi-media performance event that combines live dance, electronic music, computer programming, and smartphone technology. Housed at Michigan State University, the project has drawn together experts from around the country to create a performance that incorporates — indeed, relies upon — the mobile devices that nearly every audience member carries in his or her pocket. "We live in this very interactive world, and what we wanted to do is find a way to use that same technology we use for video games in a live performance," says Todd Edwards, the designer and technical director for the St. Olaf Theater Department and one of the experts who began working with the Theatre Engine project two years ago. As the project got off the ground, Edwards asked the St. Olaf Dance Department to get involved. This fall Artist in Residence in Dance Anthony Roberts worked to prepare 15 first-year students to perform in Theatre Engine when it comes to campus. "Collaborating with graduate students and faculty from other schools has been a great experience for our students," Roberts says. "They're learning how to be creative, and how to think, move, act, and respond in the moment." After its initial performances at Michigan State, Theatre Engine will travel to St. Olaf. It will then continue on to Brigham Young University. And at each stop — in fact, at each performance — audience members will see something entirely unique. How it works Using an app developed by computer scientists at Michigan State, audience members will have a small avatar of a performer on their smartphone. If the avatar is wearing a green costume, then that audience member controls the performer wearing a green costume. As audience members move their phone, the computer program takes the GPS/accelerator data from the device to a server. There the program translates that into audio cues for the performers, who translate them into various moves. "It gives the performers a lot of creative interpretation," Edwards says. As the performance evolves, the app invites audience members to take a more active role in the performance, such as change the lighting, make sound, strike a pose. Through all of it, a composer will be creating a computer-generated soundscape, in real time, to match what is evolving with the performance. As audience members become more involved in the piece, Roberts says, there's a subtle shift. They have gone from being the "controllers" of the dancers to being invited into the piece. As the environment evolves, the cues get more cryptic. "The idea is that we get them to the point that the phone is set down and they are brought into the space," Edwards says. That, he says, is perhaps the most significant hurdle that smartphones present. "One of the biggest challenges the piece has is treading the line between being in the moment and not in the technology, with heads down staring at screens," Edwards says. An evolving performance The goal is that by the time Theatre Engine leaves St. Olaf, the performance will contain elements it didn't have when it arrived from Michigan State. Each institution will continue to build on the piece by reacting to the actions of audience members, Edwards says. "There's no completion, no 'finish' to this piece," he says. Yet he notes that after seeing a few trial runs of Theatre Engine in Michigan, he's mesmerized by the possibilities. "We saw everyone from little kids to elderly adults participating," he says. Although the audience will eventually be drawn into the piece, the initial performers will be the first-year dancers taught by Roberts. Both Roberts and Edwards say they hope this project has shown the students the importance of play and the reward of taking chances. Christy Dobbratz '18 has enjoyed the cross-department collaboration of this project and the opportunity to explore the innovative side of dance. "It has been interesting to explore my own capacity to work on the fly and develop my improv skills," Dobbratz says. "I am a little nervous for the performance, but as long as we as dancers keep an open mind and give it our best shot, the audience will enjoy it." Cosimo Pori '18 says despite the ubiquity of smartphones, he had never considered using technology to literally control dancers. Such a complex concept is exciting to participate in, he says, and has provided a valuable lesson in teamwork and trust. "It is exhilarating to be a part of a project that is taking audience participation and interactivity to an entirely new level," he adds. Theatre Engine performs at the Wagner Bundgaard Dance Studio One in Dittmann Center on Saturday, March 7, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, March 8, at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The performances are free and open to the public, with general seating and no ticket required.

TICKETS: $16 PURCHASE: http://wrdm2015.brownpapertickets.com/ “Leave space for the unexpected.” Triskelion Arts is pleased to present white road Dance Media’s latest work, NEON BRAVE, challenging the idea of the traditional performance “run”. This full-length work will be presented once a week over the course of three weeks at Triskelion Arts in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. NEON BRAVE is a work fixed on courage and brightness of being, investigating both the consequences of libertine actions and the strength needed to move forward. Can you accept your history and its consequences, your restlessness and driving desire to be more than the sum of your parts? Can you become the most powerful core version of yourself - locate and electrify your own neon bravery? A quartet of fearless women investigates these questions in real time, allowing them to become alternately entangled and interreliant, empowered and individualized. The production was created in collaboration with sound designer Chad Raines, who composed the original score. This performance contains nudity and images that may not be suitable for young children. Created by Marisa Gruneberg Original score by Chad Raines Performed by Sammy Donahue, Sydnie Liggett, Miranda Lyon and Alexandra Taylor Lighting by Andrew Dickerson Costumes by Joey Blaha This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Created under the auspices of the Triskelion Arts Space Subsidy Program, made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support for the creation of NEON BRAVE was provided by DanceNOW/Silo.

The School of American Ballet (SAB) announces the 2015 Winter Ball at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 9, 2015, sponsored by legendary French jewelry Maison, Van Cleef & Arpels for the eighth consecutive year. To purchase tickets, a table, or for more information, contact the Special Events Office at (212) 769-6636. An annual event, the Winter Ball is a glamorous, black-tie dinner dance attended by more than 500 patrons, including the School’s board members and alumni as well as leaders from the New York corporate and social communities. A highlight of the evening is a performance by the advanced students of The School of American Ballet created specifically for the event. This year, New York City Ballet dancer Peter Walker was selected as choreographer by Peter Martins, Artistic Director and Chairman of Faculty for SAB. The proceeds from the event enhance every aspect of the School’s extraordinary ballet training program, helping to provide more than $1.9 million annually in student scholarships, as well as supporting faculty, maintaining world-class studios and offering vital student programs beyond the classroom. This year’s Winter Ball will celebrate SAB co-founder George Balanchine’s affinity for the unique spirit and energy of America. Ron Wendt will take inspiration from the influences of the Pop Art era and 70’s revival using color and whimsy to create a fun and festive atmosphere on the David H. Koch Theater’s promenade level. Famed French jewelry Maison, Van Cleef & Arpels, will again act as the lead corporate sponsor for the gala. This long-standing partnership is a tribute to the friendship shared between SAB founder, George Balanchine, and one of the Van Cleef & Arpels founding brothers, Claude Arpels, who established the Maison in New York in 1939. From their shared passion for exceptional stones was born an artistic relationship that resulted in Balanchine’s ‘Jewels’ ballet and its sumptuous costumes. The event is led by Chairmen Joyce Giuffra, Julia Koch, Serena Lese, and Laura Zeckendorf; and Young Patron Chairmen Noreen K. Ahmad, Amanda Brotman and Lesley Vecsler. ABOUT SCHOOL OF AMERICAN BALLET The School of American Ballet, the official training academy of the New York City Ballet, was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein as the first and most essential step in their quest to create an American classical ballet company. SAB, located at New York City's Lincoln Center, is the premier ballet academy in the United States, training more students who go on to become professional dancers than any other school. SAB's former students fill the ranks of the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies. ABOUT VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Van Cleef & Arpels was born in Paris’ Place Vendôme in 1906, following Alfred Van Cleef’s marriage to Estelle Arpels in 1895. Always striving for excellence, the Maison has become a worldwide reference through its unique designs, its choice of exceptional stones and its virtuoso craftsmanship, offering jewels and timepieces that tell stories and bring enchantment to life. Over the years, the Maison has remained faithful to this highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, refinement and poetry. Whether inspired by nature, couture or the imagination, its collections evoke a timeless world of harmony and beauty. Peter Walker hails from Fort Myers, Florida, where he began his early dance training at age eight. He attended the School of American Ballet during the 2006 and 2007 summer courses and enrolled as a full-time student in the winter of 2007. Peter honed his choreographic skills by participating in SAB’s annual Student Choreography Workshop; and in 2011, 2012 and 2014, he was selected by Peter Martins to choreograph the Summer Session of the New York Choreographic Institute. He was a recipient of SAB’s 2011 Mae L. Wien Award for Outstanding Promise and became an apprentice with New York City Ballet. He joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet in fall 2012.

This long-standing partnership is a tribute to the friendship shared between SAB founder, George Balanchine, and one of the Van Cleef & Arpels founding brothers, Claude Arpels, who established the Maison in New York in 1939. Their shared passion for exceptional stones inspired a creative partnership that resulted in Balanchine’s ‘Jewels’ ballet and its sumptuous costumes. The event is led by Chairmen Joyce Giuffra, Julia Koch, Serena Lese, and Laura Zeckendorf; and Young Patron Chairmen Noreen K. Ahmad, Amanda Brotman and Lesley Vecsler. ABOUT SCHOOL OF AMERICAN BALLET The School of American Ballet, the official training academy of the New York City Ballet, was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein as the first and most essential step in their quest to create an American classical ballet company. SAB, located at New York City's Lincoln Center, is the premier ballet academy in the United States, training more students who go on to become professional dancers than any other school. SAB's former students fill the ranks of the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies. ABOUT VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Van Cleef & Arpels was born in Paris’ Place Vendôme in 1906, following Alfred Van Cleef’s marriage to Estelle Arpels in 1895. Always striving for excellence, the Maison has become a worldwide reference through its unique designs, its choice of exceptional stones and its virtuoso craftsmanship, offering jewels and timepieces that tell stories and bring enchantment to life. Over the years, the Maison has remained faithful to this highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, refinement and poetry. Whether inspired by nature, couture or the imagination, its collections evoke a timeless world of harmony and beauty. Peter Walker hails from Fort Myers, Florida, where he began his early dance training at age eight. He attended the School of American Ballet during the 2006 and 2007 summer courses and enrolled as a full-time student in the winter of 2007. Peter honed his choreographic skills by participating in SAB’s annual Student Choreography Workshop; and in 2011, 2012 and 2014, he was selected by Peter Martins to choreograph the Summer Session of the New York Choreographic Institute. He was a recipient of SAB’s 2011 Mae L. Wien Award for Outstanding Promise and became an apprentice with New York City Ballet. He joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet in fall 2012.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces its Fifteenth Anniversary Performance Season, the World Premiere of Renewal, from March 13-15, 2015 as part of the Tribeca Dance Series at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, at 199 Chambers St, NYC. Performances are Friday, March 13 at 7:30pm, Saturday March 14 at 7:30pm and Sunday, March 15 at 3pm. Tickets are $25 and are available at http://tribecapac.org/amanda-selwyn-dance-theater/ or by phone at 212.220.1460. The Saturday evening performance will be followed by a gala from 9:00 – 11:30pm, which will include a silent auction, a presentation of company’s arts-in-education program, cocktail and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets will be $125-250 for the performance and reception. The gala will be held at New York Law School, 185 West Broadway at Leonard Street. Gala tickets are available at http://tribecapac.org/amanda-selwyn-dance-theater/ or by phone at 212.220.1460. Renewal is an evening-length work that unpacks the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again – dramatizing how we re-invent ourselves again and again over time. Renewal will be composed of a series of shorts that shift the physical and visceral present movement, re-starting, reclaiming, and revitalizing our experience of it. Each short will highlight signature structures and elements in Selwyn’s style including gesture, partnering, virtuosic artistry juxtaposed with pedestrian movement, humor, character, and theatricality. With Selwyn’s fresh and vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, energy, release, touch, and balance, she will activate emotional expression and offer many in-roads for audiences to make meaning for themselves. “Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion – she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production.” - Inside New York

 “Amanda Selwyn’s work is masterly and emotionally expressive, she is truly gifted in the art of dance making.” - NYC Dance Stuff Dancers: Sarah Buscaino, Adam Robert Dickerson, Jenny Gillan (rehearsal director), Manon Hallay (apprentice), Gildas Lemonnier, Louie Marin, Torrey McAnena, Robert Moore, Emily Pacilio, Randall Smith, Sarah Starkweather. Costume Design: Anna-Alisa Belous, Lighting Design: Dan Ozminkowski, Sound Design: Joel Wilhelmi, Rehearsal Director: Jenny Gillan. Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates original and dynamic dance theatre that raises questions, challenges social norms and values, and magnifies humanity through dance. Productions pivot around core themes and through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage. Presenting dance in an immediate, mature, and inclusive way, we engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul. www.amandaselwyndance.org Founded in 2000, Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre has presented over 30 productions at NYC venues including New York Live Arts, Dance Theatre Workshop, Dance New Amsterdam, Danspace Project, Ailey Citigroup Theater, The Kumble Theater, and John Jay College.

As part of the Dance Complex’s Winter into Spring performance series, two modern/contemporary dance companies team up to present new work on Friday, March 13, and, Saturday, March 14. Boston-based Intimations Dance and Brooklyn-based Inclined Dance Project share the bill for dynamic performances at the Dance Complex in Cambridge. Intimations Dance explores themes of obsession with self, others, and body construct. What is socially acceptable to be obsessed with? What is not? Interested in the idea of how being watched and leads to certain performed behaviors, Intimations Dance implores the audience to reflect on their own experiences “performing” their daily lives. Inclined Dance Project presents Stuck Together Pieces, an exploration in connecting, disconnecting, and re-connecting. The work delves into the complex bonds of human beings within physical and mental space, dissecting how environment, distance, and personalities affect interactions and relationships. Inclined Dance Project also presents the premier of Temporizer, which examines dominant and reticent energies. Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1155625

The Joffrey Ballet is celebrated for "wise casting, wickedly talented dancers, [and] world-class choreographers" (Berkeleyside). Son of Chamber Symphony by Stanton Welch, which premiered to rave reviews at Jacob's Pillow, is set to John Adams's restless score, and Alexander Ekman's West Coast premiere of the rambunctious Episode 31 opens to urgent, explosive rhythms before settling into a serene duet dance to a reading of Christina Rossetti's poem "Color." Val Caniparoli's abstract work Incantations is set to a score by Russian minimalist composer Alexandre Rabinovitch-Barakovsky, and continuous movement of the piece creates a zen-like spiral of movement and emotion.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 60th Anniversary Season with Moscow City Ballet’s Don Quixote, inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ classic story of valiant knights and old-fashioned romance, on Sunday, March 15, 2015 at 3pm. Tickets are $36-45 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm). Based on an episode from Cervantes’ famous novel, Marius Petipa’s whimsical and romantic Don Quixote follows its title hero as he travels to Barcelona in pursuit of honor and the lovely Dulcinea. Accompanied by Ludwig Minkus’ colorful score, the world-touring company led by Ludmila Nerubachtchenko, vividly depicts the joyous and comedic adventures of Don Quixote and his squire Sancho Panza. The performance will feature Yulia Zhuravleva as Kitri, Talgat Kozhabaev as Basil, and Alexander Gavrilov as Don Quixote, along with Valerii Kravtsov (Sancho Panza), Sergey Saliev (Espada, Fandango), Alevtina Kasatkina (Street Dancer), Anna Ivanova (Kitri’s Friend, Grand Pas Variations), Kateryna Tokareva (Kitri’s Friend, Grand Pas Variations), Yaroslav Alekhnovich (Kitri’s Father), Sofia Antonyants (Maid), Dmitriy Trukhachev (Gamash), Liliya Orekhova (Queen of Dryads), Maria Khrapova (Cupid), Luidmila Titova (Gypsy, Fandango), Anastasiya Shiladjan (Mercedes), Elena Kotelkina (Carmencita), Albina Golikova (Guitar Dance), and Liubov Lysak (Guitar Dance). The return of the Moscow City Ballet to the United States in March, 2015 is a tribute to the founding artistic director and choreographer Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, who passed away in April, 2013. About Moscow City Ballet The Moscow City Ballet was founded in 1988 by distinguished Russian choreographer Victor Smirnov-Golovanov and his wife, Ludmila Nerubachtchenko. The company was the outcome of the reforms in post-Soviet Russia of that time. It is a private enterprise, and is not subsidized by the government. The company's first international tour appearance was in 1989 in Seoul, Korea. Its success outside of Russia makes it one of Russia's most extensively touring ballet companies. Since 1988, Moscow City Ballet has appeared in Belgium, Cyprus, Egypt, Holland, Hong-Kong, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Estonia, Peoples Republic of China, Philippines, Republic Korea, R.O.C. Taiwan, Singapore, United Kingdom, United States, and, naturally, in Russia itself. The company's greatest success has been in the United Kingdom where it has given more than 1000 performances since 1991, accompanied by the National Ballet Orchestra. Considering classical ballet to be an important part of the national heritage of Russia, Victor Smirnov-Golovanov aimed to bring the company’s performances to as wide a public as possible, especially the new generation of ballet-going youngsters. Smirnov-Golovanov's own productions, as well as older versions of the classical ballets, all share a clearly-defined style, ideas and choreographic integrity, setting high performance standards for himself, and the company. Moscow City Ballet is renowned for the perfection of its corps de ballet in the best traditions of the Russian school of classical ballet. The company's unique style is ensured by the unceasing efforts, both in production and rehearsal, of its new artistic director, Ludmila Nerubachtchenko. Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts’ presentation of Moscow City Ballet’s Don Quixote is supported by Macy’s.

In addition to her own creations, Ms. Withers was the founder and co-curator of the DC International Improvisation Plus+ Festival for 14 years, 1995-2009, introducing improvisation as a performance medium for stage and on site as well as introducing Washington audiences to performances in the museums such as Smithsonian (Internationally Gallery of Art; Renwick Gallery; Air and Space Museum: and American History Museum), the Corcoran Gallery of Art, OAS, Arlington Art Center, others. Her dance film shorts have been selected for showing at local, national, and international film festivals. She has toured in 18 countries in Asia, South America and Europe. In connection to the 40th year anniversary season, Ms. Withers’ online Living Archives and timeline meticulously documents her work since the mid 60’s in the context of other significant D.C. dance events, such as the development of Washington Project for the Arts, where she served on the earliest Board of Directors. The Archives includes information about her international and local imprint, videos and photos of over 140 dances/events as well as information about MindFluctuations.

“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines. They left the house at half past nine…the smallest one was Madeline.” The famous Madeline adventures by Ludwig Bemelmans are brought to life by the Carnegie Performing Arts Center in a charming ballet that outlines Madeline’s adventures in Paris. Always testing Miss Clavel’s patience, the Parisian schoolgirl Madeline has daring adventures with Pepito, the Spanish Ambassador’s son, as they misbehave in old fashioned Paris and run into gypsies in the Cirque L’Hiver, the famous Parisian winter circus. Backstage at the famous Paris Opera, Madeline has to save the day and take over as Prima Ballerina. Dancing the role of Madeline is Gabrielle Prevade of Oakdale who attends West Allegheny High School. Gabrielle has danced with the Carnegie Performing Arts Center since the age of five. Senior company members Megan Blackwell of Crafton, Hanna Brandebura of Carnegie, Danielle Buttlar of Bethel Park and alumni Courtney Killmeyer of Pittsburgh, currently attending IUP, will dance the notable Pas De Quatre, the famous ballet of leading ballerinas of Paris’s golden age. Adrienne Elion of Scott and Jamie Pachuta of Pittsburgh will perform the famous Bluebird Variation. Alumni Stepanie Hrabar, currently attending Goucher University in Maryland, and a resident of Pittsburgh, will perform the Cardinal Solo. The timeless adventures of Madeline in Paris are brought to life in ballet form on Friday, March 20, at 8 p.m., Saturday, March 21, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 22, at 2 p.m. All performances will be at the newly renovated Andrew Carnegie Music Hall, 300 Beechwood Avenue in Carnegie. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors and are available at the door. Call 412-279-8887 for more information or visit the website at carnegieperformingartscenter.com

Featuring tap dance and live music Description: Chicago Tap Theatre is excited to premiere their newest original story show, TightWire, for Chicago audiences of all ages! CTT has gained notoriety for their annual story show, wherein they tell a story using tap dance and live music (not to mention Poetry Slam creator Marc Smith narrating) to convey the story. Their last major collaboration, 2013's Mama's Boy, was chosen as one of the Top 10 Dance Events of 2013 by the Chicago Sun-Times. While retaining the charming and occasionally snarky humor they are known for, this year's show takes a dark and sinister turn in a peek behind the scenes of a traveling Italian circus troupe in the 1930s. Amid the colorful acts that populate this circus, audiences will follow a taciturn ringmaster, eyes always on the bottom line, sisters who have spent their life walking a thin line and a vagabond clown with a mysterious past. Find out what life is really like under the big top. Written and narrated by Marc Kelly Smith Choreographed by Mark Yonally Directed by Rose Freeman Original music by Kurt Schweitz Premiere tap dancing by Chicago Tap Theatre

What happens when our body and mind is infiltrated by an intruder? How does our sense of self change and how can the control of "territory" be regained? Questions like these are exactly what prompted Reject Dance Theatre to present their first collaborative show:​The Territory Suites.​This piece explores "territory" from the perspectives of three unique choreographic voices. T​he Territory Suites​was first presented as a site-adaptive and immersive event at Movement at the Mills at the Boston Center for the Arts in April 2014. It embarks on a journey into human relationships, gender identity, and animal interactions. The Territory Suites explores the human experience and the juxtaposition between emotional intensity and comedic lightness. The performance uses moments of humor integrated throughout, such as an absurd physicalization of a sloth or the spoken word/text representing the stream of consciousness during a duet, to add levity to the overall tone of the work.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 60th Anniversary Season with the much-anticipated return of National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica (NDTC) on Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 8pm and on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 3pm. Returning to Brooklyn for the first time since their 50th Anniversary tour in 2012, the company will perform two programs combining evocative new works with favorites from their extensive repertoire. Tickets for Saturday evening are $40-$75 and tickets for Sunday matinee are $36-$45, and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm). Co-founded by Rex Nettleford and Eddy Thomas in 1962, at the time of Jamaica’s Independence, NDTC ventures to provide an atmosphere in which dancers could create and perform works of high standards, to encourage the Jamaican public to better appreciate the art of dance, and to research and utilize indigenous dance-forms and movement pattern from Jamaica and the wider Caribbean. A biennial visitor to Brooklyn Center for more than two decades, NDTC presents two special programs featuring repertoire highlighting the company’s 50 year history. The repertoire for the company’s 2015 Brooklyn appearance includes: • Drumscore (1979), choreography by Rex Nettleford, featuring the NDTC singers • Diarogue for Three (1963), choreography by Rex Nettleford • Playtime (2014), traditional Jamaican folk songs featuring NDTC singers and orchestra • Rough Drafts (2014), choreography by Chris Walker, featuring full NDTC company • Sulkari (1980), choreography by Eduardo Rivero-Walker, originally premiered on May 13, 1971 by the Danza Nacional de Cuba • Incantation (2002), choreography by Jeanguy Saintus, a solo excerpt featuring Kerry-Ann Henry • Kumina (1971), choreography by Rex Nettleford About National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica (NDTC) National Dance Theatre Company (NDTC) is a voluntary group of dancers, singers, musicians and creative technicians who are dedicated to the view that their work in the dance can help to bring discipline, a sense of process and cultural awareness to the awesome task of nation-building. The search for a definitive Caribbean dance theater linked a varied and versatile group together to make this goal a reality. During its five decades of existence the NDTC has achieved a reputation for artistic excellence developing much of its repertoire from authentic folk material. The entirely Jamaican ensemble has performed in Europe, North, Central and South America, Australia and the wider Caribbean meeting with unqualified success and establishing for itself a laudable international reputation. Barry Moncrieffe (Artistic Director), former Associate Director and long-standing lead dancer with the NDTC, Mr. Moncrieffe has served as “the clay” on which many leading male roles in NDTC’s repertoire were molded for some three decades. Mr. Moncrieffe did early training in Eddy Thomas Dance Workshop, in summer schools at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus and later on scholarship at the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance in New York. The Company’s principal dance tutor and senior lecturer in dance at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (School of Dance), he has also taught and performed in the Caribbean, Germany, England, China, Finland and at Vassar College in the United States. He appeared with the last States-wide tour by the famous Anna Sokolow before finally returning to his native Jamaica and NDTC. A Musgrave Medalist and more recently a National Honours Award Recipient (Commander of Distinction, CD), he made his debut as a choreographer for NDTC in 2002 with a dance-work based on Bruckins Party in collaboration with Founding Member and dance icon Joyce Campbell. Ewan Simpson (Musical Director), Attorney-at-Law, holds a Master of Laws (LL.M) in Intellectual Property Law, from the University of Turin (Italy). A creative and analytical mind, Simpson wears many hats and can be described as a young veteran in the Jamaican entertainment arena. He has a wealth of experience in production and events management, and has been a production and entertainment consultant to major entertainment stakeholders, including the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival for which he has been appointed Associate Producer.

Culture shock in hindsight, Aftershock reflects the impact of Ronen Koresh’s immigration to the United States from Israel in the 1980s. Of his dual belonging and its effect on his choreography, Koresh states: “Israel is a huge part of my life, it’s what defines me as a person—the culture, the tension, the love of life, the passion, the heat, the music and food, the complexity of racial and cultural integration. My work is Middle Eastern culture coupled with American experience.” Aftershock examines how that rich combination grew from an initial moment of uncertainty, and expanded through its reverberations.

"There has been no company I have been so glad to discover as Noche Flamenca and, above all, its lead dancer, Soledad Barrio. I can think of no current ballet star in the world as marvelous as she." —Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times Sizzling flamenco electrifies the stage as this Madrid-based company of dancers, singers and musicians provides an authentic look at a fiery and expressive art form. Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca promise a passionate journey through the very heart and soul of flamenco. All aspects of flamenco – song, dance, and music – are interrelated, creating a true communal spirit among the group’s ten performers. But Barrio is the indisputable star, a great artist without pretense, who makes you aware that, above its virtuosic feet, flamenco is an art of curves, arcs and circles. Her body is her soul’s instrument, ensnared by the music, and you feel yourself fortunate to be in the same space with her. Tickets: $23-55 (Prices include $3 restoration fee)

In 1845 Henry David Thoreau retreated to his cabin at Walden Pond in Massachusetts to experiment with a life of simplicity. He kept detailed records of his environment including when the pond froze and thawed and when each variety of plant bloomed in spring. Less than 30 miles away the industrial revolution was well underway at the Lowell Mills that employed over 10,000 people, mostly women, to generate fabric for an explosion of ready-made American clothing. Today we own closets full of clothing and mass made material goods that would have boggled the mind of the average nineteenth century American. Recent research has utilized Thoreau’s detailed observations on the plants of Walden Pond and revealed that those same plants are blooming an average of three weeks earlier than they did in 1845. It is no longer disputed that human activity is contributing to climate change, so what have we gained and what are we losing? What did these mill girls gain in financial independence, and what did they lose as they disconnected with the natural world and entered the life of dormitories and machines? Of Looms and Lilies is an artistic investigation of the proliferation of material wealth generated by the industrial revolution and its effect on both our personal and spiritual lives and its wider impact on Climate change. It is also a simple conversation between a nineteenth century factory worker and a contemporary woman. What might they say to one another? What might they learn? Danced by Adriane Brayton, Shannon Humphreys, Kristy Kuhn, Jennifer Roberts & Jennifer Sylvia With guest performance by Weber Dance Community Group Creation of Looms and Lilies was supported by a Boston Center for the Arts Residency and a Bridgewater State University CARS Summer Grant.

What We Do With Time is an evening of dance works featuring rhythm as a means of cultivating individual and communal experiences onstage. Featuring dancers from the Stephens College Dance Department and guest artists from Chicago-based Jump Rhythm Jazz Project, this work by new dance maker, Brandi Coleman, seeks to embrace the downbeat, explore the offbeat and present movement that thrives in the liveliness and purposefully constructed chaos that is rhythmic dancing. Choreographer Brandi Coleman’s work is inspired by the human experience and uses rhythm to tap into the element of emotion and conscious connecting. Characteristics of her work include visibly articulated music played in the body, physically integrated polyrhythms and rhythmic counterpoint into the dancing score, and expressive play used as a foundation for the creative process and resulting artistic work.

Flatlands Dance Theatre is excited to present Wanderlust: Think Globally, Dance Locally, a dance concert in two acts that focuses on ideas such as travel, adventure, history, spirituality, and human connections. The performance features the choreography of guest artists Sarah Gamblin and the Big Rig Dance Collective and compositions by guest artist Curtis Peoples. Live music will provide dynamic environments and projected digital images will offer a backdrop for innovative contemporary dance. Wanderlust will be presented on Friday, April 10th and Saturday, April 11th, 2015 at 8:00 pm in the Firehouse Theatre at LHUCA. Ticket prices include a $3 Select-a-seat surcharge, and are $20 general admission and $12 for seniors, children, and students with ID. Tickets can be purchased online at www.selectaseatlubbock.com or by calling Select-A-Seat at (806) 770-2000. Acts of Absence is a work of dance/music and digital media performance that explores the desire for connection in a world defined by vastness. Just like an open prairie, which can be so quiet that minute details of the landscape emerge, but then can suddenly shift into an overwhelming and unstable place, this work presents a wide range of physicalities and psychological locations. Choreographed by guest artists Sarah Gamblin and the Big Rig Dance Collective, the cluster of dance works within the frame of Acts of Absence, range from sparse and subtle to overwhelmingly athletic and are united by the physical imagery of absence, sudden change and the often unmet need to connect. The ever adventurous and award winning Fort Worth musical group Momentary Gamelan Ensemble provide rich accompaniment ranging from the almost silent to the raucous to the untenable. Nivedita is a work of dance and music inspired by the story of educator and social worker Sister Nivedita, her lifetime of explorations through Ireland and India, and the resultant spiritual journey that accompanied her travels. Original compositions by Curtis Peoples provide varying landscapes through which dance choreographed by Ali Duffy, Sarah Mondle, Kyla Olson, and Rachel Ure is interwoven. Special guest choreographer Katrina Hinds and young dancers from Christ in the Arts school will join the company for interludes of Celtic dance. For more information, contact Artistic Director Ali Duffy at ali@flatlandsdance.org. This production is made possible by the generous support of the CH Foundation, Helen Jones Foundation and the J.T. & Margaret Talkington Charitable Foundation.

WHAT is Soul de Soul? Soul de Soul (SDS) is a dance convention for dancers at any level of experience from ages 5 - 50. SDS offers classes in a variety of styles for "mini" dancers through teachers and everyone in between! Co-founded and directed by best friends, Hilary McAlister and Mackenzie Crosley, this convention is meant to be a way of sharing their passion for dance with other young artists. SDS reaches to empower dancers of all ages by creating a community where they can dance, risk and excel in a safe environment with some of the best teachers and choreographers in the industry. SDS offers class in several styles but believes the improv class is the true heart of Soul de Soul as it imparts a new understanding and true love of movement. WHY we created SDS: Soul de Soul was created out of our shared concern of the closed off community that we felt in our city due to the lack of opportunity to take from other local teachers outside of home studios and the desire to bridge the gap between studios and dancers who were training down the street from each other 3 times a week. Our efforts were to create a safe place free from those boundaries and to offer a safe place where dancers, students, teachers and anyone with the shared affinity for dance could come create and experience others' talents. This is the founding integrity of our company.

The Directors’ Audition and Performance Workshop provides an invaluable opportunity for dancers (between 17 - 20 years old) to audition for FOUR Professional Ballet Companies in ONE great workshop that culminates with a performance with professional dancers. This special 5-week summer intensive workshop features classes with Artistic Directors from four major companies: Ballet West, Kansas City Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet and Richmond Ballet. This allows dancers to be seen and evaluated by multiple renowned company directors instead of the typical process of auditioning for one company, or attending a single company’s workshop. The workshop concludes with a full-stage production of works by American Masters: Lew Christensen’s Con Amore and Balanchine’s Serenade at our Summer Spectacular Repertory Show, which will also feature professional dancers. Dates: June 29 - August 2, 2015 | Monday – Saturday, 10am-6pm Acceptance is by audition only. Only 32 dancers accepted. Auditions offered in New York, Atlanta, Salt Lake City & Boca Raton.
