This March, award-winning contemporary choreographer Ariel Grossman and her company of seven female dancers will celebrate the 12th Anniversary of ARIEL RIVKA DANCE (ARD) with two premieres, repertory and guest artists at Baruch Performing Arts Center. The two ARD works in premiere, "Mossy" and "Rhapsody in K," will feature newly commissioned scores by composers David Homan and Stefania de Kenessey. Live music will be included at all performances. Ms. Grossman’s choreography emanates from a female worldview, often using the lens of motherhood, nursing and child rearing as a platform for emotional yet organized thematic contexts. Inspiration is drawn from the struggles and joys of the human experience. She and the dancers work together to transform these emotions into shapes and stories. "The dance world has been full of male choreographers, for centuries… choreography is yet another lens of expression that has been influenced mainly by men. But I have a lot to say and so do many other women,” said Ms. Grossman. “I am inspired by the juxtaposition of grace and strength, and I choreograph to capture those seemingly opposite qualities. My dancers embody that spirit,” she said.

This spring, the Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University will continue its 2018-2019 season with Meridian, a thesis concert featuring dance works by MFA candidate Yizhen Hu, with additional works by guest artists and CWRU alumni Karlie Budge and Yidi Lin. Performances are March 28, 29, 30 at 8 p.m. and March 31 at 2:30 p.m. at Mather Dance Center on the Case Western Reserve University campus. Yearning, a solo work choreographed by Hu, explores the experience of people who are trapped by cultural and social restrictions, and find themselves enduring intense external pressure. As they find ways to overcome these forces in order to exert their own viewpoint, the result is finding their own paths and making their own choices. A duet for two men, Synergism, explores two males who both struggle in executing certain movements. Once they come to realize that one person can facilitate another to achieve the movements that the other cannot do, they cooperate and assist each other. Hu’s Amalgamation is an abstract group piece featuring an ensemble of undergraduate and graduate students. With music by Rob Power, the work displays the process of creating a movement idea, developing it, and then reducing it back to the original. Returning to the Mather Dance Center stage is Inevitable, which explores the emotional experiences of death and loss. Hu’s choreography investigates the struggles of grief and the frustrations of helplessness, along with the realization of the unavoidable mortality of human life. Between Us, choreographed by alumni Karlie Budge and Yidi Lin, is a duet in five sections - Sneaking, Frisking, Fleeting, Floating, Seething - portraying the forming and falling out of a relationship. Budge graduated in 2016 earning her BA in dance and Lin graduated in 2016 earning her MFA in dance. The work will be performed by Yizhen Hu and Katie Nabors. Meridian runs March 28, 29, 30 at 8 p.m. and March 31 at 2:30 p.m. All performances take place at Mather Dance Center, 11201 Bellflower Road, on the Case Western Reserve University campus. Tickets are $7 for students with ID, $10 for adults 60+ and CWRU personnel, and $15 for general admission. Reservations are recommended, and may be made by calling (216) 368-5246, or online at dance.case.edu/reservations.

The fabled children's ballet Cinderella will be presented by the Carnegie Performing Arts Center March 29, 30 and 31 at the Andrew Carnegie Music Hall, 300 Beechwood Avenue in Carnegie. Friday and Saturday performances will be at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for children, students and seniors. The ballet follows the story of young Cinderella, whose father died and left her in the care of her stepmother. The stepmother, with her two daughters, Agatha and Adele, make Cinderella work as a servant in her own home. They call her Cinderella because she spends so much time sweeping out the cinders in the fireplace. Cinderella dreams of attending a ball for Prince Cornelius who is seeking a wife. With the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella does indeed go to the ball and wins the love of the Prince. But then, at midnight, just as the fairy godmother predicted, Cinderella’s beautiful ball gown turns to rags, her coach turns back into a pumpkin and her footmen become mice. All that is left is a tiny glass slipper that Prince Cornelius finds and determines to find its owner. The role of young Cinderella is played by Natalie Twigg of Munhall, while the grown up Cinderella is danced by Elizabeth Scalise, a Junior at Chartiers Valley and a resident of Bridgeville. The young selves of stepsisters Agatha and Adele are played by Alexis Albert of Scott Township and Shelby Self of Collier Township. Older versions of Agatha and Adele are portrayed by Miranda Richardson of Mount Lebanon who is a graduating senior at the Carnegie Performing Arts Center and Alexis Retkofsky who is a recent graduate of Point Park University in Costume Design. Mary Pusateri, from Bethel Park, dances the role of the Stepmother and is an instructor and alumni of the Carnegie Performing Arts Center. Madeleine Ryan who attends South Fayette High School dances the role of Cinderella's fairy godmother. Prince Cornelius is portrayed by Jeremy Eiben, who is in his final year of Costume Design at Point Park University. He won the first place Craftsman award from Tekko which takes place at the David Lawrence Convention Center. Jeremy is a resident of Washington. For information about the performance of Cinderella please call the Carnegie Performing Arts Center at 412-279-8887 or access the website at www.carnegieperformingartscenter.com or look up the Carnegie Performing Arts Center on FaceBook.

Saturday March 30 at 8:30 PM: Dance NOW! Miami presents their spring show, "Program II: Contemporanea 2019", featuring "(B)Orgia: Decadence and Decay" at the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center, 3385 NE 188th Street, Aventura 33180. The machinations of the Borgias in the 15th and 16th century form the basis of this new dance work, from power grabs to lavish displays of elegance and beauty, contrasted against a background of betrayal and subterfuge. The corrupting influence of power and the lurid underbelly of society might seem like dark and heavy themes for a dance performance. But coming from South Florida's leading contemporary company, Dance NOW! Miami, and in today's political climate, their newest evening on Saturday, March 30, at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Arts Center, promises to be another fascinating and forward-leaning one. Program II: Contemporanea 2019, will feature the world premiere of (B)ORGIA: Decadence and Decay, inspired by the real life story of the famous Italian Renaissance-era family, choreographed by Dance Now Artistic Co-Directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten. The program will also include a reconstruction of Daniel Lewis' classic There's Nothing Here of Me But Me; and the world premiere of Baumgarten's Fire Within, Fire Without: Dido on the Pyre; and an as yet untitled world premiere piece from Salterini. There's Nothing Here of Me but Me, originally performed by Daniel Lewis' own New York-based company in 1980, is a reflective work, made up of small sections strung together by a common theme - the aloneness or estrangement of life in the theater. It is essentially autobiographical. Daniel Lewis will make a cameo appearance in the performance. Fire Within, Fire Without: Dido on the Pyre is an expanded version of a duet Baumgarten workshopped this past summer at Interlochen Center for the Arts, in collaboration with composer Federico Bonacossa, who uses the ancient instrument Viola de Gamba for the score. It is a retelling of the Roman myth, chronicling the tale of a couple's passionate love and Dido's tragic suicide. Salterini's new piece is a luscious ensemble work for six members of the company, a delicate and poetic dance built around the music of South African composer Phillip Miller. The Aventura Arts and Cultural Center is at 3385 NE 188th Street, Aventura 33180. Tickets are $35 general admission, $15 students (at the box office in-person only). Regular price tickets can be purchased in advance online at tinyurl.com/DanceNowAventura and by phone at (877) 311-7469, or in-person tickets at the Center box office.

Odissi is a classical dance from the state of Orissa in Eastern India. It has its roots in ritual temple dancing dating back to the 2nd Century BCE and brings to life the sculptures that decorate the walls of these ancient temples. ‘Udaiyavar: An Offering in Odissi Dance’ explores the concept of the Transcendent Being who both creates and destroys; reveals and mystifies, offers and takes away. This seemingly dichotomous force, however, reveals itself to be a regenerative cycle; one where destruction, illusion, and separation pave the way for rebirth, liberation, and union.

Ballet des Amériques Announces Westchester Wednesday Dance - A New Performance Series at the Tarrytown Music Hall French-American choreographer Carole Alexis and her Ballet des Amériques dance company bring a rich and sprawling repertoire to the Tarrytown Music Hall in a new series called Westchester Wednesday Dance. These weekday evenings of dance offer audiences a break in the workday routine and a chance to witness the original work of the Music Hall’s company in residence. As a student of Maurice Béjart, Alexis’ choreography is rooted in classical ballet training and tradition while drawing on influences as disparate as children’s games, island rituals, natural phenomena, and modern urban life. Her dances entice and charm the viewer with elements of humor, psychological insight and surprise. Her company’s extensive and eclectic repertoire bears her distinctive signature and vision, reinvigorating “ballet” for new audiences and dance connoisseurs alike. Performances are scheduled for October 10, 2018, 7PM; February 20, 2019, 7PM; April 24, 2019, 7PM; June 26, 2019, 7PM. Tickets for all four performances of the season are available at: https://tickets.tarrytownmusichall.org/eventperformances.asp?evt=2164 For the first performance of the series, Ballet des Amériques will present evolved versions of Lentil Soup, Macouba and Nos ici et d’ailleurs. Westchester Wednesday Dance is made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government. Established in 2011 under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, as its name implies, inserts itself into the French cultural heritage of the Americas. Composed of classically trained dancers of diverse backgrounds, the young company has already danced the choreography of Carole Alexis in over 60 public performances beginning with its debut at the Festival de Fort-de-France in Martinique in 2011. As the resident dance company of the Tarrytown Music Hall, Ballet des Amériques is building on the success of its Evenings of Dance series to develop a regional dance audience in Westchester and neighboring counties. With its local roots and international orientation, the company is poised to grow its audiences beyond dance connoisseurs to reach those who have never been exposed to this art and especially young people, in conscious fulfillment of the educational function of dance in the spirit of Maurice Béjart.

This internationally acclaimed, history-making company returns to the Virginia Arts Festival with a dazzling program that includes a world premiere commissioned by the Festival and the 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution. The new ballet is being created by Claudia Schreier, an award-winning young choreographer who has drawn attention and commissions for new work from American Ballet Theatre, the Vail Dance Festival, and more. The piece, created for 12 dancers and performed in three parts, is set to a new score composed by Jessie Montgomery, whose music has been hailed as “wildly colorful and exploding with life” (The Washington Post). The new ballet’s world premiere performances in Norfolk are a “Signature Event” of American Evolution, which marks and commemorates historical events in 1619, including the arrival of the first recorded Africans to English North America and the recruitment of English women in significant numbers to the colony, a pivotal year in the history of Virginia and the nation. Join the celebration of Dance Theatre of Harlem’s historic 50th season, and be among the first to see this new work!

When watching this extraordinary company perform, one can’t help but ask, as a New York Times critic did, “How many things can be made of a somersault!” In a Pilobolus show, bodies merge and part, roll and climb, forming impossible shapes that spark wonder. Whether you’re a long-time fan or new to this amazing group, you’ll want to be there as “acrobatics are liquefied into poetry. The continuity of changing imagery, the easy sensuousness and the wonderful push-me-pull-you surprises of the physicality: These still seem to come right out of their makers’ dreams and into ours” (The New York Times).
