China's world-renowned female percussion group, The Red Poppy Ladies, today announced its return to New York City for a three-month long run of its audience favorite production of MULAN THE MUSICAL . An inspiring journey for the entire family, MULAN recounts the same 1,600 year-old Chinese folk tale made famous by the 1998 Academy Award-winning Disney animated film. By artfully combining dynamic drumming, colorful projections, traditional Kung Fu, and dance, the timeless story of one young girl’s bravery is brilliantly reinterpreted into a rich, visual and unique theatrical experience.

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.

Ballet Academy East is proud to announce the addition of a dance class called Dance for PD® for people with Parkinson’s this fall. Dance for PD classes, developed collaboratively by Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group, are currently offered at Mark Morris Dance Center, The Juilliard School, and at several locations in The Bronx and Queens. The class at Ballet Academy East represents the program’s first East Side location and provides access for an area of Manhattan previously underserved by this kind of resource. “Ballet Academy East is honored to collaborate with Dance for PD in bringing the joy and physical benefits of dance to people with Parkinson’s disease. Our goal is for every participant to leave class feeling uplifted and inspired by their abilities,” said Julia Dubno, founder and director of Ballet Academy East. Dance for PD, which originated at the Mark Morris Dance Center in 2001, offers specialized dance classes accompanied by live music for people with Parkinson's, their caregivers, family members and friends. Professional teaching artists integrate movement from modern, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing, and choreographic repertory to engage participants’ minds and bodies and create an enjoyable, social environment for artistic exploration. Because Dance for PD focuses on the aesthetic movement of dance rather than acting as therapy, participants in class they are encouraged to approach movement like dancers rather than as patients. Dance for PD classes provide a social environment for participants to interact with other community members, and to share a positive, stimulating activity together with their partners. Participants report that the classes boost their confidence levels, transform their attitudes about living with a chronic illness, and help them manage some of the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Consistent interaction within the close-knit community of the dance class helps to combat social isolation and depression while empowering participants with a sense of physical possibility and artistic achievement. In Dance for PD classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. The program is built on one fundamental premise: professionally trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge is useful to persons with PD. This acclaimed program is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required. Participants will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing, and Mark Morris company repertory in a non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers. Classes modeled after Dance for PD now occur in more than 100 communities in the US, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Holland, Italy, India, Israel, Mexico, and the UK. For more information about the program, please visit www.danceforpd.org. There is no charge for the Dance for PD classes. Advance registration required through the Dance for PD website (www.danceforpd.org) or by calling 718-218-3373 About Ballet Academy East Ballet Academy East, established in 1979 by director, Julia Dubno is made up of four divisions. The Pre-Professional Division for ages 7-19, led by artistic director, Darla Hoover, trains dancers for professional careers in ballet. An audition is required for admission to the Pre-Professional Division. The Enrichment Program is open to students ages 7 and older who wish to study ballet recreationally. The well-known Young Dancers Division offers creative movement, pre-ballet, tap, and modern to ages 18 months to 6 years. BAE’s Open Class Program offers adults of all levels classes in ballet, tap, Pilates, Zumba, and yoga. The Dance for PD class will be part of the Open Class Program.

Kaley Pruitt Dance comes to Manhattan Movement & Arts Center for a new full evening production. Join us for an evening of brand new work, old f avorites, and a story piece sure to bring out th e supe r hero in us all. Kaley Pruitt is honored to be working with dancers and collaborators, Joshua Reaver & Megan Wubbenhorst, as well as guest artists. Craft (Premiere) is an evolution of exerting the creative process and the dancer’s physical capacity to a full extent. It is about finding a deep logic then excruciating challenge, and oscillating between those to create momentum and power felt in audience and dancer alike. Super (Premiere) is for the kid inside your heart. It is hysterical, ridiculous, and at times even devastating. Take a journey from reality, into a fantasized comic book adventure and back. The piece depicts how bravery may really be nothing more than having a powerful and convincing imagination. Being One (2008) traces the path of finding individual voice and regaining human connection. The work addresses how we live in, observe, and act upon the world. It is a window into self-affirmation and the deep need for engaging with others. www.kaleypruittdance.com | Tickets $16.00 - www.TicketFly.com

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.

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

An explosive mash-up of music, dance, technology and silent film that offers a fresh take on this timeless tale. Original songs and powerful live performances blend with the 1925 silent film to create a show-stopping-spectacle that brings the Lon Chaney classic to three-dimensional, high-decibel life. Singers, dancers and musicians give voice to the silent film projected behind them, playing off each other, the audience and the onscreen story to create a magical exchange. Latin and French for "Voices of Light,” Vox Lumiere is equal parts rock concert, opera, musical theater and multimedia spectacle, all working together to tell a story with projected silent movies. Each evening begins with a red carpet entry for the patrons, photo ops with the cast, refreshments and pre-show entertainment in the lobby. Once inside, patrons experience a live band, surround projection screens, hi-definition sound and a light show. The singers and dancers are lavishly costumed in steampunk-inspired attire.

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.

THE FIREBIRD
 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.”

Gallus Gallus Domesticus Project Description It is a dance about being chicken; always afraid the sky is falling; about being a post-modern domesticated free-range female searching the environment for threats. It is about the conceptual object of the body, a breast, a thigh, a wing and where the ability for flight was lost. It is about the memory of wildness and the language in the prayers of a prey animal. The intersection of cultural conditioning and biological imperative in this banal, brutal human form is vain, afraid of aging, illness, loss and death.

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.

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.

“The basis of my dance is an attempt to make visible what already exists in the environment but was hitherto invisible and without meaning.” In dance, if we position ourselves to perceive the environment directly, the environment itself will manifest in our body as presence, physicality, and movement. When the mind and body are in a status of acute listening, we can approach an expression of the true-self. This LEIMAY Ludus Training Lab will focus on physical and mental training to sharpen awareness, sensitivity, and concentration. How can the body be moved, not by self-volition, but by the properties of time, space, and matter? How to sense and embody the subtleties of density, weight, temperature, light/darkness, textures, and currents of time and space. How to clearly externalize and to direct felt sensations and desires as an expression. Dates: October 24th, 6:00pm-10:00pm // October 25th & 26th, 10:00am - 2:00pm Price: $160 full course / $56 single class Join us for another LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer and Body Weather Practitioner Sherwood Chen from October 17th - 19th! http://leimaymain.cavearts.org/?p=3015

Born in the Year of the Horse, Josephine Baker left her homeland in the USA in the 1920s to live in France where she became an international superstar and a symbol of the Jazz Age. Hers is a story of struggle, humour, dignity and survival. Kimberley Cooper uses the idea of Josephine Baker as inspiration to create a fictional fantasy in an exotic, erotic, otherworldly setting. Experience images, sounds and movement that celebrate the essence of Josephine Baker in the Year of the Horse. "... I improvised, crazed by the music... Even my teeth and eyes burned with fever. Each time I leaped I seemed to touch the sky and when I regained earth it seemed to be mine alone." - Josephine Baker
