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.

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.
