Are you in need of a sultry Spanish night or a boheiman 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. 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. A wine list,from all around the world. Stelle,located on the corner of Cypress and Locust at 1403 Locust St, walking distance from Century Theaters, Lesher Theater,BART and Broadway Plaza. 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

Tthe well worn hardwood floors will 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 Contact Carolina Lugo for additional information about classes, workshops, and bookings at 415-933-9391 carolinalugo1@msn.com or visit her website at www.carolinalugo.com For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448

Wendy Whelan was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, where at the age of three she began taking dance classes with Virginia Wooton, a local teacher. At age eight she performed as a mouse with the Louisville Ballet in its annual production of The Nutcracker. Joining the Louisville Ballet Academy that year, she began intense professional training. In 1981 she received a scholarship to the summer course at the School of American Ballet (SAB), the official school of New York City Ballet and a year later she moved to New York to become a full-time student there.

In 2011, she was honored with both The Jerome Robbins Award and a Bessie Award for her Sustained Achievement in Performance. In 2012, Whelan began developing new collaborative projects. Her inaugural project, Restless Creature, which premiered at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in August of 2013, is a suite of four duets, created by and danced with four of todays most cutting edge contemporary dancer/choreographers, Kyle Abraham, Joshua Beamish, Brian Brooks and Alejandro Cerrudo. Restless Creature will travel to London and Vail in 2014 and will tour in the US starting in January 2015.

Dance Council of North Texas presents the inaugural season of Dallas DanceFest – an exhilarating festival that showcases excellence in dance and celebrates the outstanding contributions of distinguished leaders in the field. Dallas DanceFest (DDF) offers two evening showcases featuring exceptional works curated to reflect vibrancy, vitality, diversity, and excellence. Dance Council Honors recognizes the stellar contributions of distinguished dance leaders. DDF’s new name and new vision are built upon the foundations of The Dallas Morning News Dance Festival that began in 1985 with performances by Dancers Unlimited Repertory Company, Ballet Dallas, and Dallas Black Dance Theatre and spanned twenty seasons before concluding at Annette Strauss Square in 2004. DDF keeps the spirit of this beloved Labor Day tradition alive and upgrades production values by moving the former outdoor event to a new stage– the two-year old Dallas City Performance Hall (DCPH). Because of the conveniences of the Dallas Arts District, DCPH’s backstage facilities, and 750-seat proscenium theatre; DDF will now boast a new level of artistic excellence for artists and audiences alike. Ticket prices and box office services will be announced shortly. In celebration of the first DDF season, the weekend will culminate with the annual DCNT Honors recognizing outstanding contributions to dance. Inaugurated in 1987, Honors annually presents five awards of distinction to members of the dance community. The afternoon hosts a showcase that features performances by selected DCNT 2014 scholarship recipients, silent auction, and reception. DDF is a production of the Dance Council of North Texas. Dallas dance patron, Gayle Halperin, serves as Chair of the DDF Committee. Development consultant, Sara Sessions, manages artistic programming and development. The creative team includes lighting designer, Tony Tucci, and production director, Debbie Barr.

FREE Workshop led by Onye Ozuzu This course will explore the circle as a structure for performed group improvisation. The circle of playground fights and politics, of Brazilian Capoeria, of Jazz music, of B-boying/B-girling, of club culture sharing and battling will merge with contemporary dance and theater improvisational techniques and emerge as a fluid tool for the crafting of layered, powerful individual and community performance. Students will work with movement, poly-rhythmic sound, story-telling, and an acute and developmentally complicated awareness of personal and group senses of space, time, place, focus and anticipation. Embodied practice will exploit a shared “center” in order to offer participants the opportunity to cultivate, sharpen and expand their perception of physical state to encompass that of the group as a whole. What results will be an integrated group performance of improvised sophistication. The work is deeply stimulating and evocative of the potential for group collaboration, “group mind” building/making and collective creativity. Expertise in any specific dance/movement form is not necessary.

A workshop with choreographer/dancer Peggy Choy that explores notions of breath as a potent focus of the mind, and “writing” with the body. Choy is interested in a process of interrogating current dance notions of hybridity and fusion. Having grown up in Hawai‘i, where colonial occupation bumps up against cultural diversity from a plantation past, dance is her tool to re-position Asian movement and martial arts in a global landscape, and to question what it means to be a Korean American woman creating in a conflictive and unstable world.

 CHOREOGRAPHY: Stephen Mills AGON
 CHOREOGRAPHY: George Balanchine
 © The George Balanchine Trust MUSIC: Igor Stravinsky
 LIVE ACCOMPANIMENT: Austin Symphony Orchestra Sparks fly in September as we open the season with two fantastic works, both with dramatic scores composed by Igor Stravinsky. The production begins with The Firebird, in all its vivid glory. Adapted from a Russian folk-tale, the Firebird gives her life for love, but ultimately rises from the ashes like a phoenix. Artistic Director Stephen Mills pairs this piece with George Balanchine’s Agon.
 
 Created in 1957, Agon has been acknowledged as one of Balanchine’s great masterworks. One of a series in his “leotard ballets,” Balanchine strips away all costumes and scenery to allow the audience to “see the music, hear the dance.”

Have We Come A Long Way, Baby? curating is always in conversation with history, is a program celebrating and exploring the West Coast postmodern dance lineage through an intergenerational lineup of female soloists: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Peiling Kao and Hope Mohr. Between 1962 & 1964, the Judson Dance Theater in New York City radically shifted the course of dance history. Through a series of influential concerts at Judson Church, they crafted provocative performances that challenged traditional conceptions about what counts as dance. Their abstract pieces, which included humorous, pedestrian and improvised movement and text, made space for new approaches to artmaking in ways that continue to drive innovation in contemporary dance. With the recent 50th anniversary of the Judson Dance Theater, the time is ripe for discussion and celebration of the West Coast’s postmodern lineage. Halprin will perform The Courtesan and the Crone (1999), her acclaimed solo that addresses the aging body. Forti will perform her Logomotion improvisation. Mohr will perform Carnation, Lucinda Childs’ seminal 1964 solo. Additionally, Mohr will present a new solo, shard, based on decades of journals and performed by Peiling Kao.
