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.

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.

Dance Company Presented in Partnership with the National Museum of Dance July 6 – 21, 2015 The World Premiere of The Long Walk Composed by Jeremy Howard Beck with libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann Directed by David Schweizer, Conducted by Steven Osgood Featuring Daniel Belcher, Heather Johnson, Caroline Worra, David Blalock, Javier Abreu, Justin Hopkins, and Donita Volkwijn July 10 – 25, 2015 Opera Saratoga announces its 2015 Summer Festival season, which will run from July 2 – July 26, 2015 at multiple venues throughout
Saratoga Springs, New York. The 2014/2015 season is the first programmatic year under the artistic and general direction of Lawrence Edelson and marks an expansion for the company in several ways: the first World Premiere presented by the company in nearly 30 years, three operas instead of two, and a longer festival season including performances at multiple venues in the region. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Opera Saratoga into its next chapter, and thrilled that my first season will provide opportunities for audiences to see three operas that show the breadth and depth of what is happening in opera today, with some of the foremost artists of our generation,” said Lawrence Edelson. “The season includes three operas that couldn’t be more different. La Cenerentola (Cinderella) is a bubbling comedy by Rossini that features virtuoso singing to impress the most passionate opera lovers, and is also an ideal introduction to opera for family audiences. Our presentation of Dido and Aeneas will be our first site-specific production, presented in partnership with the National Museum of Dance. Operas that prominently feature dance will be a part of our programming every season moving forward, and this particular production not only builds upon the region’s connection to dance, but also takes advantage of the stunning natural beauty of Spa State Park, where we are located. The world-premiere of The Long Walk marks a reaffirmed commitment to the inclusion of contemporary American opera as a regular part of our programming. The Company has produced 33 works by American composers in its history, 5 of which have been world premieres, but The Long Walk, by two of the most exciting writers in American opera today - composer Jeremy Howard Beck, and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann - will actually be the first world-premiere for the company in 27 years! This year, we are initiating new partnerships with a wide variety of cultural organizations throughout the region, enabling us to offer exciting new performance programs that compliment the season’s operas, which provide even more ways for audiences to connect with the company and our wonderful artists. By expanding the festival, and moving it into July, we are providing more opportunities not only for local audiences to enjoy our programs, but opportunities for audiences from around the country to enjoy the cultural riches that Saratoga Springs has to offer. With a train station in the heart of the city, and Albany airport less than 30 minutes away, we look forward to welcoming opera lovers from around the country to enjoy not only Opera Saratoga, but all of the restaurants, shops, cultural attractions, historic sites, and natural beauty that Saratoga Springs has to offer.” In tandem with the expansion of the season, the Young Artist Program – the second oldest program of its kind in the country – is being expanded to provide greater professional development opportunities for emerging professionals. The program will consist of three tiers for singers, as well as opportunities for pianists, conductors and directors, under the direction of Laurie Rogers. Opera Saratoga has selected 28 gifted artists from over 1,000 applicants from across the country, who will be in residence in Saratoga Springs this summer. A complete list of Young Artists may be found at http://www.operasaratoga.org/2015-young-artists/ OPERA SARATOGA’S 2015 SUMMER FESTIVAL PROGRAMMING LA CENERENTOLA (Cinderella) Music by Gioachino Rossini, Libretto by Jacopo Ferretti, Based on the Fairy Tale by Charles Perrault Directed by Lawrence Edelson, Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow Featuring Sandra Piques Eddy, Andrew Owens, John Brancy, David Kravitz, and Ryan Kuster Performances: Thursday, July 2, 2015 at 7:30pm; Saturday, July 11, Tuesday, July 14, and Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 2pm; Sunday, July 26, 2015 at 7:30pm Opera Saratoga opens the 2015 Summer Season with Rossini’s beloved version of Cinderella. Based on Perrault’s timeless fairytale, La Cenerentola features plenty of magical enchantment; the ridiculous, over-the-top situations and toe-tapping melodies that you expect from the master of comic Italian opera; and heartfelt emotion to bring together this story of forgiveness and true love. The ultimate rags to riches tale; it's a Cinderella story...but not quite as you may know it! Opera Saratoga is proud to present the company debuts of five extraordinary singers in La Cenerentola: Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy sings the virtuoso title role along side tenor Andrew Owens as Prince Ramiro, baritone John Brancy as his valet Dandini, David Kravitz as her wicked step-father Don Magnifico, and Ryan Kuster as the mysterious philosopher Alidoro. Gary Thor Wedow also makes his company debut conducting this new production by Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson.

One of the earliest English operas, Dido and Aeneas is one of Purcell's foremost theatrical works. This heartbreaking opera recounts the love of Dido, Queen of Carthage, for the Trojan hero, Aeneas, and her despair when he abandons her. The combination of exquisite vocal music and extensive use of dance has inspired many interpretations of the great score. Opera Saratoga has invited world-renown choreographer and director Karole Armitage to create a very special site-specific production for Saratoga Springs that embraces the natural beauty and history of The National Museum of Dance located in Spa State Park.

Triskelion Arts Presents... lonely goat July 10 - 11, 2015 at 7:30pm at Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 (Enter on Banker Street) Tickets: $16 Purchase here: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/962048 Triskelion Arts is pleased to present lonely goat’s latest work, the final installment in a trilogy that began with "55 Short Stories II" and followed with "Until We Are Home". lonely goat braids abstraction, tale, and lore, asking: where does imagination split from logic and what would it look like if we were to learn narrative on a purely experiential basis? Using specificity of costume, creation of landscape, and precision of movement, the company’s work offers onlookers a place to question confusion and renegotiate their unique interpretation of “story”. By leaving narrative as an ambiguous character, the audience is expected to make decisions of their own and encouraged to follow their personal associative tangents.

WHERE Mark Morris Dance Center, 3 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY WHEN on Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12 WHAT auditions forThe Hard Nut and full-time company positions The Mark Morris Dance Group will hold auditions on July 11th for both male and female dancers of all ages for The Hard Nut (performances in December 2015), as well as full-time company positions. Space is limited and priority registration will be given to this year’s MMDG Summer Intensive students. Call backs will be held on July 12th. Pre-registration is required at MMDG.ORG/AUDITIONS ABOUT THE MARK MORRIS DANCE GROUP Founded in New York in 1980, the internationally-renowned Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has been called “the preeminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma), receiving “highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity.” (Bloomberg News). MMDG spent three years in residence at Brussels’ Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie as Belgium’s national dance company, returning to the United States in 1991. The Dance Group is distinguished as the only modern dance company with a commitment to live music at every performance, founding the MMDG Music Ensemble in 1996. MMDG also regularly collaborates with eminent musicians across genres, including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe, jazz trio The Bad Plus, the London Symphony Orchestra, baroque orchestras Tafelmusik and Philharmonia Baroque, as well as opera companies such as The Metropolitan Opera and the English National Opera. Community engagement is also a vital component of the Dance Group. Through the organization’s Access/MMDG programming, it integrates opportunities for dance, music, talks, and education at its Brooklyn home, the Mark Morris Dance Center, as well as on tour around the world. “The Mark Morris Dance Group has long been ahead of all other dance companies in the flow and detail of its dancers’ response to music. And their qualities of focus, stillness, and ease are ones that most actors would envy. “ — Financial Times ABOUT THE HARD NUT The Hard Nut is a retro-modern take on the holiday favorite The Nutcracker. Morris' rendition, which has won Ovation TV's Battle of the Nutcrackers contest for three years running, transplants the story from the decorous 1890s to the swinging 1970s, a freewheeling era realized with panache and wit. Inspired by the E.T.A. Hoffmann story, Tchaikovsky's gorgeous score, and the comic book art of Charles Burns, Morris captures the beauty and tenderness of this classic while infusing it with supreme musicality and raucous humor. “Morris' choreography is formally dazzling, uproariously funny.” — San Francisco Chronicle

Through projections and light on a main wall and throughout the campus, the work aims to explore connections between the individual identities of the galleries and artists at Bergamot and the Art Center as a unified space. EVERYWHERE in BETWEEN was conceived and produced by Kate Johnson In association with 18th Street Arts Center, Bergamot Station, and the City of Santa Monica. This project was made possible by Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts awarded to City of Santa Monica. To implement the grant, the City works in partnership with Bergamot Ltd., 18th Street Arts Center, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, and BSGCA. This piece is further supported by Brite Ideas, Inc., who is generously providing equipment and technical direction.

For their New England debut, Delfos Danza, Mexico’s leading contemporary dance company brings their compelling evening-length work, Cuando los Disfraces se Cuelgan (When the Disguises are Hung Up). A work for seven dancers, “Disguises” integrates dance, video, computer animation and music by Mario Lavista, Meredith Monk, Schumann, Sergio Díaz, Bach and Vivaldi into a reflection on appearances and the loss and rediscovery of the self. Both deeply conceptual and accessible, “Disguises” is one of the most acclaimed works in Delfos’ repertory.

Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance organization since 1970, returns to Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY, on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at 8pm by popular demand after a sold-out performance last year. Tickets are $20/$18 Members – $60/$58 Members and FREE to Students and are available at www.guildhall.org or by phone at 631-324-4050. Ballet Hispanico will perform CARMEN.maquia. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, this work—like Bizet’s iconic opera about a passionate gypsy—is riveting from start to finish. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. With a visual concept inspired by Picasso’s black-and-white palette, and movement that is full of elaborate partnering, CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying reimagining of Bizet’s fiery and tragic tale. ABOUT BALLET HISPANICO Since its inception in 1970, Ballet Hispanico has been recognized as the nation’s premier Latino dance organization. Led by award-winning Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the Ballet Hispanico Company has performed for audiences totaling over 3 million, throughout 11 countries, and on 3 continents. The Company’s commitment to contemporary repertory has produced world-class, multifaceted performances that have featured master works by Nacho Duato, cutting-edge premieres by Cayetano Soto and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and live music collaborations with renowned artists such as Paquito D’Rivera and Ruben Blades—to name a notable few. Through the work of its professional company, school of dance, and community arts education programs, Ballet Hispanico celebrates the dynamic aesthetics of the Hispanic diaspora, building new avenues of cultural dialogue and sharing the joy of dance with all communities. For more information, visit www.ballethispanico.org. Follow Ballet Hispanico on Facebook and Twitter. EDUARDO VILARO, a first generation Cuban-American, began as artistic director of Ballet Hispanico in August of 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. Mr. Vilaro has been part of the Ballet Hispanico family since 1985. As a dancer with the Ballet Hispanico Company, he performed throughout the U.S., Latin America and Europe and assisted founder Tina Ramirez with the development of dance education residencies. Mr. Vilaro is also an accomplished choreographer, having created works for the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Lexington Ballet, the Civic Ballet of Chicago, and over 20 ballets for Luna Negra Dance Theater, the company he founded in Chicago. He received a B.F.A. in Dance from Adelphi University and an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Art from Columbia College Chicago, where he served as Artist-in-Residence at The Dance Center. Mr. Vilaro was a guest speaker at the Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Leaders and the National Association for Latino Arts and Culture, and continues to speak to the growing need for cultural diversity and dance education.

Robert Moses’ Kin returns to Bates with “NEVABAWARLDAPECE,” (“never be a world of peace”) a full-company work of urgent, pulsing energy that explores critical moments of change in America’s liberation movements, insurrections and revolts. In a world of seemingly endless chaos and confrontation, “NEVABAWARLDAPECE” feels like a plea for a return to core principles. A collaboration with award-winning writer and performer Carl Hancock Rux; Afro-Celtic, folk-funk, hip-Appalachian vocalist Laura Love; blues musician, composer, MacArthur Fellow and Bates alum Corey Harris; and lighting and visual designer Elaine Buckholtz, this dance/spoken word/music driven tour de force packs a punch.

Their show combines the pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar for a riveting display of this true Spanish art form. This award-winning ensemble has been providing Bay Area audiences with passionate performances for 20 years, bringing artists from Spain and abroad to appear with them. Peña Pachamama is known for its Latin American, Bolivian and raw food tapas and other dishes, plus wine, beer and specialty cocktails for purchase. "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.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces Green Afternoon III, a performance and cocktail reception at the home of architects Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel in East Hampton, NY on Saturday, August 15, 2015. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and several outdoor sitting rooms featuring performance installations, with performers dancing in tree houses, on outdoor sculptures, in and around the swimming pool, in the woods, and more. A more formal performance will begin at 5:50pm and will be followed by a reception. Green Afternoon III takes place at 230 Old Stone Hwy, East Hampton, NY 11937. Tickets are $85 ($150 for Patron Tickets) and can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/green-afternoon-iii-tickets-17150930896. Amanda Selwyn will present an excerpt of her newest work, Renewal, an evening-length piece that unpacks the state of being made 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: Adam Robert Dickerson, Manon Halley, Robert Moore, Torrey McAnena, and 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.
