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.

Are you in need of a sultry Spanish night or a bohemian adventure? So brace yourself for a night when the well worn hardwood floors of Pachamama resonate with the pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar. If you have not seen this group, this is an opportunity to experience their high energy and passion for their art that defines a new dimension in Flamenco and Spanish dance traditions. Carolina and her daughter Carolé offer a special evening for a date night, family gathering, or get together with friends and co-workers. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune Best to arrive 30 minutes before show times for seating. Allow for traffic and parking which is available next door or across the street.

In the heart of Walnut Creek's downtown Stelle Bistro is a dinning adventure a fusion of traditional and modern Italian cuisine designed by Chef Hugo for your dinning pleasure.

Low cost parking is available at the city's garages, just a half block south on Locust Street. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she's equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cookwith what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448 For additional information please contact Manager Richard

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with theater master Mario Biagini Associate Director of the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards This LEIMAY Ludus Lab is open to actors, dancers, body-rooted performers, or anybody interested in exploring the elements of the actor’s craft. Within the whole duration of this LEIMAY Ludus Lab taught by guest director Mario Biagini, participants will explore fundamental elements of the actor’s craft such as organicity, relation, contact, impulse, intention, action and reaction, the relation between process and form, and strive towards an understanding of the difference between movement and action. Under the direction and guidance of Biagini, participants will work on the creation of individual and collective acting scenes, on singing ancient traditional songs, and learn elements of the physical training developed at the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards over the past twenty-eight years. These modules will allow participants to approach the basic aspects of practical research at the Workcenter, and to discover their own individual and unique approach to creation. Modules will explore the basic but complex constitutive elements of the actor’s craft: • Relation: precision / organicity • Relation: tradition / individual work • Relation: ritual / drama • Composed movement and rhythm • Singing • Vibration of the voice • Body resonators and spatial resonance • Awareness of space and reacting to its constituent elements • Improvisation: the impulses / the vigilant mind • Improvisation within a structure • Search for a precise line and logic of impulses and physical actions: the score Full Schedule: Monday January 12th-Saturday, January 17th 2015, 10:00AM - 6:00PM Detailed Schedule: Module 1: Singing and Organic Behavior: Jan 12, 13, 14, (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 2: Physical Training: Jan 15, 16, 17, (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 3: Intentional Action – Spontaneity and Structure Jan 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, Monday - Saturday afternoons, 3:00PM - 6:00PM Full Tuition: $756, Module 1 - $240, Module 2 $240, Module 3 $360 Online registration is required.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 60th Anniversary Season, once again partnering with Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company for its second annual Lunar New Year Celebration, on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 3pm. Tickets are $25 for adults and $12.50 for children (ages 12 and under) and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm). Recipient of China’s prestigious Golden Lotus Award, choreographer Nai-Ni Chen and her company will once again take Brooklyn Center’s audiences on a visually delightful, culturally rich tour of the 3,000-year-old Chinese civilization. This year’s celebration honors The Year of the Sheep -- a year of peace, love, and woolly gentleness according to the Chinese calendar. The repertoire for the performance will include “Double Lions Welcoming Spring,” a version of the popular Lion Dance; “Gu Ze Yung Ge,” a dance from the Han people in Northeast China that incorporates fans, handkerchiefs, and drums in a celebration of the harvest; the rhythmic “Hubei Coin Stick Dance,” originally done by street performers in the Hubei province; and the famous “Dragon Dance,” symbolizing imperial power and nature’s grace. The Company will also perform an excerpt from Peach Flower Landscape, a dance drama portraying a peaceful agricultural community living in perfect harmony with the land, commissioned in 1995 by the Lincoln Center Institute. The Chinese Music Ensemble of New York, the oldest, largest, and only full-scale Chinese orchestra in the Americas, will once again perform in this year’s celebration, accompanying the dancers with traditional instruments such as pear-shaped lute and hammered dulcimer. Musical interludes will include “Song of the Mountains,” a solo performed by Yueqin Chen on the ruan, a plucked-string instrument similar to a lute, and “A Parting Tune,” an ensemble piece inspired by the poetry of Tang Dynasty poet Wang Wei. The Company has partnered with the Consulate General of China to bring 10 distinguished guest artists from China to perform, hailing from SiChuan and Beijing. The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company includes dancers Tyler Brown, Greta Campo, Chloe Crade, Yoo Sik Kim, Kristen Lau, Kyung Joon Lee, Nijawwon Matthews, Bo Pang, Ying Shi, Yao Zhong Zhang, Guidong Zhou, Min Zhou, and Guixuan Zhuang, along with various guest artists.

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer Mari Osanai This LEIMAY Ludus Lab with guest dancer Mari Osanai is divided in three different modules: 1) Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part One, 2) Noguchi Taizo Part Two, and 3) Movement Creation and Structure. Modules can be taken separately or together. However early registration and discounts are only open to those who plan on taking all the modules. This LEIMAY Ludus Lab is open to dancers, body-rooted performers, physical actors of all levels, ages, and capabilities. Within the whole duration of this LEIMAY Ludus Lab participants will explore fundamental elements of Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics). During the third module under the guidance of Osanai, participants will work on the creation of short individual and group pieces. Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics) was created in Japan by Michizo Noguchi (1914-1998) during the same period as butoh was being developed by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. The aim is to develop the uniqueness of each individual movement and to relieve any undue strain. Taizo means ‘gym’ in Japanese, but not in the conventional sense. As Osanai explains, “This technique has nothing to do with the swelling of the muscles nor resistance forces. The body learns to move in a certain way but is loose and fluid. It becomes soft and flexible as it uses its own weight to be moved.” These modules will allow participants to experience Mari’s unique approach to dance and understanding of Noguchi Taizo, and to discover their own individual and unique approach to movement creation. Dates: January 28th - February 8th Detailed Schedule: Module 1: Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part 1: Jan 28, 29, 30 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) 6:00PM - 10:00PM Module 2: Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part 2: Feb 1, 2, 3 (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 3: Creating your own Movement: Feb 5, 6, 7, 8, (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 6:00PM - 10:00PM Price: Full course - $580, Module 1 - $198, Module 2 $198, Module 3 $264 Pre-registration is required Members’ discounts and other discounts valid for online payment only http://leimaymain.cavearts.org/?p=3119

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.

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.

"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)

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance presents The Mantises Are Flipping (P.S. I’ll have whatever they’re having), World Three as part of the DANCE: Access series* at Danspace Project from May 21-23, 2015 at 8pm at St. Marks Church, 131 East 10th Street, NYC 10003. Tickets will be available beginning March 2015. For more information, please visit http://bodystoriesfellion.org. Derived from Teresa Fellion’s Master of Fine Arts thesis solo at Sarah Lawrence College, Mantises utilizes contrasting movement qualities, while creating polyrhythmic movement where the upper and lower body perform separate dynamics and rhythms. With Fellion’s direction, the company dancers are investigating themes including: the nature of opposites, “sanity versus insanity”, the effects of sound on the body both internally and externally, and the changing psychological states of several individuals in a thread of isolation. These have informed their ever-changing imaginative development process to cultivate new discoveries. “The Mantises Are Flipping (P.S. I’ll have whatever they’re having) is a long-term contemporary dance project which has evolved during three separate, detailed stages of fresh development, exploring duality that creates a voyeuristic point of observation into idiosyncratic worlds and relationships among individuals,” said Teresa Fellion, Artistic Director of BodyStores: Teresa Fellion Dance. “World One premiered at ICA Boston and CPR-Center for Performance Research in 2013, exposing our sound and movement vocabularies, created to contain opposing qualities simultaneously. World Two premiered at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center and Bryant Park Summerstage in 2014, offering layers of cohesion to four distinct, rich environments. Through further movement and sound development, as well as extended spatial and interactive design research, in May 2015 we will premiere a new work, Mantis (World 3), which will give the audience an immersive experience in the imaginative, playful, yet ‘unfortunately adult’ world of Mantises Are Flipping.” Mantises will feature dancers Iman Barnes, Zach Bergfelt, Corey Bliss, Alex Jenkins, Andrew Magazine, Monica Mordaunt, and Audrey Rachelle Stanley; with costumes by Ljupka Arsovska; and live music and original composition by Ryan Edwards and John Yannelli.
