Ballet Academy East is proud to announce the addition of a dance class called Dance for PD® for people with Parkinson’s this fall on Fridays from 11:00-12:15pm at Ballet Academy East, 1651 Third Avenue, NYC. 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.

Mellon Foundation’s 2010 report “We Make Do,” which cited the critical need for affordable dance rehearsal space in New York City, and mentioned available performing arts centers and other spaces on CUNY campuses. A successful pilot project in 2013 supporting choreographic residencies and performances on four CUNY campuses prompted CDI to expand its scope. In CDI’s 2014 season, 11 CUNY colleges in all five boroughs will host a total of 20 residencies. The residency projects, which represent a diversity of ideas, approaches, and styles, will take place between July and December 2014. In addition to providing space for artists to create work and rehearse, all of the CDI projects include programs for students ― master classes, open rehearsals, etc.― and in most cases, public events such as lecture-demonstrations and performances.

Lynch Theater has been an invaluable cultural resource for John Jay College and the larger New York City community.

Ballet Hispanico to Perform at 24th Annual International Ballet Festival of Havana [Professional Performances]

Ballet Hispanico, recognized as America’s leading Latino dance organization since 1970, will perform in Cuba’s International Ballet Festival of Havana on November 1-2, 2014 at 5pm. Highlights of the program include Asuka, a celebration of the music of Celia Cruz by Ballet Hispanico’s Cuban-American Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, along with Sortijas (Cayetano Soto), Sombrerísimo (Annabelle Lopez Ochoa), and El Beso (Gustavo Ramírez Sansano). This engagement marks Ballet Hispanico’s first-ever performance in Cuba. “This is my second time returning to my homeland since I left at age six,” said Eduardo Vilaro, artistic director of Ballet Hispanico. “I return as a cultural ambassador, bringing our amazing troupe of dancers for Ballet Hispanico’s first performance there. We are thrilled to share our art with the entire world, bringing new perspectives to our cultural dialogue.” “For Ballet Hispanico to be performing at this prestigious Latino dance festival is an honor and fits beautifully with our mission. It is a testament to the continued growth of the organization,” said Kate Lear, chair of Ballet Hispanico’s Board of Directors. “We are thrilled to share our stories and the artistry of our dancers with national and international audiences. Art has no boundaries; it travels past social and political borders.” Since its inception, Ballet Hispanico’s contemporary repertory has reflected the ever-changing diversity of Latino culture, showcased masterfully by some of “the most technically accomplished and musical dancers you’ll find in the contemporary sphere” (The Washington Post). The program at the International Ballet Festival of Havana will include: Asuka by Eduardo Vilaro Asuka is a celebration of the music of Celia Cruz through the lens of the Latino experience. Cruz, renowned as the "Queen of Salsa," captured the heart of Latinos the world over and became a symbol of perseverance for many. Through rich imagery and humor, Eduardo Vilaro explores the struggles of departure from one’s homeland and the exuberance of success experienced by a community. Sortijas by Cayetano Soto to the music of Lhasa de Sela Cayetano Soto, one of the most dynamic and groundbreaking Spanish choreographers of his generation, is known for his musicality, attention to detailed technique, and expressive choreography. In Sortijas, a darkly lush duet full of emotional complexity, he ponders the unavoidable pull of fate in our lives. Costume design is by Munich-based fashion designers Talbot Runhof. Sombrerísimo by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa An absorbing exploration of identity, Sombrerísimo makes references to the surrealist world of the Belgian painter René Magritte, famous for his paintings of men in bowler hats. This athletic work for six male dancers was commissioned by New York City Center for the 10th anniversary of the Fall for Dance Festival. El Beso by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano Spaniard Gustavo Ramírez Sansano presents his first work for Ballet Hispanico, a spirited look at the nuances of a kiss set to Spanish Zarzuela music and featuring original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez. ABOUT BALLET HISPANICO Celebrating 44 years of dance and culture, Ballet Hispanico is recognized as the nation’s premier Latino dance organization. Led by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the Company boasts a rich and diverse repertory of over 100 works by the foremost choreographers and emerging artists of our time. The works expand on founder Tina Ramirez’s legacy of exploring the diversity of Latino culture through a fusion of classical, Latin, and contemporary dance powered by theatricality and passion. The Company has performed for an audience of over 3 million, throughout 11 countries, and on 3 continents. 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. The International Ballet Festival of Havana that arrives to its edition number 24 is one of the oldest of all celebrated to a world scale. Founded in 1960, by virtue of a close collaboration among the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, the National Institute of the Tourism Industry and the Revolutionary Government's cultural organisms, the Festival turned quickly into one of the most important events in national Cuban culture and in the international world of dance. With non competitive character, it has allowed our public to enjoy the performances and the creative work of noted figures of the world dance and at the same time has shown the visiting personalities the development reached by the Cuban ballet.

A true hybrid dance-theater work set in the visually arresting scenic landscape of a snowy winter night, Kindertotenlieder takes inspiration from the “uncanny” as presented by Sigmund Freud. The work examines the representation of horrifying dread as something both familiar and alien, triggering a cathartic, ceremonial experience.

Oct. 30 Come Early Conversation: Collaborating Across Genres: Writer Dennis Cooper and Choreographer Gisèle Vienne in conversation.

RIOULT Dance NY, a leading American modern dance company with a classic sensibility, will perform on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 7:30pm at the University of Mississippi’s Ford Center for the Performing Arts at 351 University Avenue, University, MS 38677. Tickets are $30 and are available at http://www.fordcenter.org/event/rioult-dance-ny/. Partially funded through the South Arts Dance Touring Initiative this multi-day residency will include master classes at Ole Miss and Lafayette High School, and a special event at the Pat Lamar Park amphitheater, among others. The evening’s performance will feature four dances from Rioult’s vast and varied repertory including Views of the Fleeting World, Wien, On Distant Shores, and Bolero. Views of the Fleeting World is inspired by the ancient woodblock prints of Japanese master Hiroshige and the ingenious structure of J. S. Bach’s “The Art of Fugue.” It explores the ephemeral quality of living things and the eternal cycle of life. Wien, a darkly fascinating take on Ravel and the Viennese Waltz, is the very image of social refinement which becomes the symbol of social disarray and decay. In On Distant Shores… a redemption fantasy Pascal Rioult sets out to redeem Helen of Troy whom he contends was brought to Troy against her will. And the program closes with Rioult’s Bolero, a bold and distinctive interpretation of Ravel’s famous score -- a riveting tour de force. RIOULT Dance NY, celebrating its 20th Anniversary in the 2014-2015 Season, fast became an established name in modern dance with a reputation for bringing the sensual, articulate, and musical dance works of Pascal Rioult to audiences worldwide. The ten dancer company, based in New York City, is led by husband-and-wife team Artistic Director/Choreographer Pascal Rioult and Associate Artistic Director Joyce Herring -- both former Martha Graham Dance Company principal dancers. With an established repertoire of over 40 dances that expands each year, RIOULT Dance NY presents an annual New York Season and tours nationally and abroad. In addition, in-school arts education and community outreach, both at home and on tour, have been integral to the company since its inception introducing students and families to the art of modern dance. www.rioult.org Major supporters of RIOULT Dance NY's 2014-2015 Season include: Shana Alexander Charitable Foundation; The Atlantic Philanthropies Director/Employee Designated Gift Fund; Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation; Exploring the Arts; Fund for New Works, a Kenneth French Legacy; Gordon & Harriet Greenfield Foundation; The Geoffrey C.

Pas de deux is the art of partnering - a dance duet in which two dancers, typically a male and a female, perform ballet steps together. Four major areas of technique in pas de deux are promenades, lifts, turns, and jumps, although there are other areas as well. A promenade is when the lady takes a position on pointe and the man walks around her while holding on to her, thus making her turn. A promenade can be done in almost any position and may change positions during the course of its life. You may think that it is pretty simple to do a promenade, how hard can it be to walk around someone? However, the lady must be kept "on her leg" or on balance during the promenade, and this can be quite difficult. A lift is just what it says: The gentleman lifts the lady. The number of different lifts that can be done in ballet is almost limitless. A pair of dancers can do a "fish" where the lady is picked up from an arabesque position and folds her bottom leg up, then is swung back by the man so she makes a curve like a fish close to the ground, or they can do a présage where the lady is lifted in a similar position to the fish but to arm"s length over the gentleman"s head. These lifts are some of the most awe-inspiring moves in ballet and some of the most demanding. When doing turns with a partner it is normally the lady who does the turning, usually some sort of pirouette. When doing a normal pirouette with a partner the gentleman will be behind the lady and will stabilize her and sometimes help her to turn with his hands on her waist. By doing pirouettes this way a lady can do many more pirouettes than she would normally be able to do on her own. Jumps can be very fun, tiring, or scary depending on what kind of jump a couple is doing. Normal jumps where the lady is jumping and the gentleman is simply lifting her to make her go higher do not involve much risk, but can be tiring after a while. These jumps are normally used as a warm up in class and not performed on stage. Some of the more risky jumps would be more accurately described as catches. This would be where the lady jumps on her own into the arms of the gentleman. Probably the most dangerous of these jumps is a leap of faith; this is the jump when the lady takes off and turns in the air so that she will land on her head if the gentleman does not catch her. Such moves always bring a gasp from an audience. This Workshop is open to male and femal dancers ages 12 - adult $58 for 4 week workshop

Triskelion Arts Presents...

Please visit www.triskelionarts.org for updates. Tickets: $16 Purchase: brdp2014.brownpapertickets.com Triskelion Arts is pleased to present the world premiere of Becky Radway Dance Project’s new work, A Delicate Madness, this November in the new Muriel Schulman Theater. Set, metaphorically, over the course of a single night, this ghostly trio investigates the visceral cycle of anger and acceptance. In keeping with the company's goal to create innovative movement and powerful imagery, the evening-length piece is filled with beautifully twisted choreography, striking visuals, and a haunting original score to represent this inner struggle, riding a fine line between fury and insanity. Spanning what is typically an un-seeable journey, the work reflects on the moments we choose to hold in or need to let out, how such feelings affect our physicality and ability to sleep, and how we can become unreasonable without our own knowledge. A Delicate Madness encompasses the fragility of human emotion, our desperate apologies, and learning to trust our own judgment in irrational moments. Support for the creation of this work provided by a Mertz Gilmore Late Stage Production Stipend, the Triskelion Arts’ Space Subsidy Program made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and fiscal sponsorship through The Field.

The CUNY Dance Initiative is a new residency program providing rehearsal and performance space to New York City choreographers and dance companies. CDI was developed in response to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s 2010 report “We Make Do,” which cited the critical need for affordable dance rehearsal space in New York City, and mentioned available performing arts centers and other spaces on CUNY campuses. A successful pilot project in 2013 supporting choreographic residencies and performances on four CUNY campuses prompted CDI to expand its scope. In CDI’s 2014 season, 11 CUNY colleges in all five boroughs will host a total of 20 residencies. The residency projects, which represent a diversity of ideas, approaches, and styles, will take place between July and December 2014. In addition to providing space for artists to create work and rehearse, all of the CDI projects include programs for students ― master classes, open rehearsals, etc.― and in most cases, public events such as lecture-demonstrations and performances. About the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College Since opening its doors in 1988, the Gerald W. Lynch Theater has been an invaluable cultural resource for John Jay College and the larger New York City community. The Theater is dedicated to the creation and presentation of performing arts programming of all disciplines with a special focus on how the artistic imagination can shed light on the many perceptions of justice in our society. The Theater is also a member of CUNY Stages, a consortium of 16 performing arts centers located on CUNY campuses across New York City. The Theater has hosted events in the Lincoln Center Festival since its first season in 1996, as well as, New York City Opera, Great Performers at Lincoln Center, Gotham Chamber Opera, Metropolitan Opera Guild and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater/Ailey II.

Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts (www.usdan.com), the nationally acclaimed summer arts day camp that for almost 50 years has introduced the arts to more than 60,000 children, announces several new dance programs: Hip hop (for grades 4-12, intermediate level), Beginning Combination Dance (grades 4-12, incorporating jazz, lyrical, theater and modern dance styles), and Lyrical Dance (grades 4-12, combining ballet and jazz). A second session of Usdan’s special and successful 3-week season will launch in 2015. The new session will begin as Usdan’s season opens on June 29, while the second 3-week session will begin on July 27. These options are in addition to Usdan’s traditional 7-week and 4-week sessions. The first Open House for the Center’s 48th season, which begins Monday June 29, 2015, will be held on Sunday November 9 from 11 AM to 2 PM at the Center’s magnificent 200-acre woodland campus, 185 Colonial Springs Road, Wheatley Heights, NY 11798. In addition to the Center’s frequent Open House dates, Usdan offers individual weekend guided tours available by appointment. Weekday self-guided walks are also available. For directions to the Center, visit www.usdan.com. For an appointment, call 631-643-7900 (Visitors must be 21 years of age or accompanied by a parent). Families who cannot attend an Open House may make individual appointments for visits on weekends or weekdays throughout the Fall and Winter. Usdan Center offers more than 40 programs in music, dance, theater, visual arts, creative writing, nature and ecology and chess, annually hosting more than 1,600 students from towns throughout the Tri-State New York area. No audition is needed for most courses, and transportation is provided in air- conditioned buses that depart from most New York-area neighborhoods. One- third of Usdan’s students receive scholarship assistance based on family need. Video from many of Usdan’s programs and special events, may now be viewed on the Center’s website, http://www.usdan.com as well as on YouTube. Also, families can check out Usdan’s Facebook site, where additional information and late-breaking news is featured. Future Open Houses during 2014-15 will be on Sundays December 14, January 25, March 15, April 19, and May 17; and on Wednesday February 18, all from 11 AM to 2 PM. Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts includes among its alumni actors Natalie Portman and Olivia Thirlby and singers Jane Monheit and Mariah Carey. The Center is open to all young people from age 6 to 18. Although the mission of the Center is for every child to establish a relationship with the arts, the unique stimulation of the Center has caused many to go on to arts careers. Alumni include members of Broadway shows and major music, theater, and dance ensembles such as the Boston Pops and the New York City Ballet. In addition to its regular programs, Usdan offers special opportunities for advanced high school- age performing and visual artists. These include Music Staff Internships and a Musical Rep Theatre Ensemble. Usdan Center is an agency of the UJA-Federation of New York.

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

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

Please visit www.triskelionarts.org for updates. Tickets: $16 / Purchase: http://jgd2014.brownpapertickets.com/ Triskelion Arts is pleased to present the world premiere of Jessica Gaynor Dance’s latest work, Free Fall, at the Muriel Schulman Theater on November 14-16 at 8pm, with an additional matinee on November 15 at 3pm. Hailed for its “risk-laden” (DIY Dancer) choreography and “sophisticated approach to pure-dance,” (The New Yorker), Jessica Gaynor Dance performs pieces that utilize kinetic physicality, intricate patterning, and formal structures in an exploration of the complexities of human experience. Pieces are constructed around core themes such as space, time and energy, and include an interplay between explosive athleticism and rich design. Jessica Gaynor Dance premieres Free Fall, an evening-length piece based on force as it applies to physicality, momentum, bodies in space, and contact interactions. Themes explored include dynamic equilibrium, centripetal force, gravity, thrust, torque, drag, and friction. Accompanying the dance will be music by Quentin Tolimieri, performed live. Lighting design is by Andrew Dickerson. Performing the work will be dancers Rachel Abrahams, Emily Diers, Kyle Gerry, Julia Sabangan, Kristi Tornga, and Matthew Westerby. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, as well as through Triskelion Arts’ Space Subsidy Program made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Institute of Dance Artistry (IDA) (www.instituteofdanceartistry.com) is pleased to announce the 10th Anniversary of the Generations Dance Concert. The concert series has raised over $40,000 for charities including Katie’s Kids for the Cure, Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium, Be The Match Foundation, CHOP, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Ronald McDonald House. Developed in 2005 by IDA owner/director Jamie Lipskin, Generations brings together professional dancers throughout the Philadelphia dance community and student dancers to perform a highly entertaining show to raise money for charities that are near and dear to the hearts of the dancers. For this year’s 10th anniversary show, the money raised will be split between two charities; Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. The Generations Dance Concert will take place on Sunday, November 16th at 3:00 p.m. at the Science Center Large Auditorium at Montgomery County Community College. IDA will also host a Generations after-party from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at its Fort Washington studio immediately following the show with a DJ, food, photo booth, and fun. IDA’s mission is to teach dance as an art form and to give back to the community through dance. IDA raises the funds to produce the concert by holding special dance events for the students. This season, IDA offered a dance team clinic, a student choreography showcase, a Zumba-thon, and a Halloween dance party to raise money for the concert costs. All money from tickets sales go directly to the charities. Additionally, students and teachers of IDA work together to have a bake sale at the show, as well as high-end raffle baskets to raise even more for the beneficiaries of the concert. IDA, located in the Philadelphia suburbs, is a school of modern, ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, lyrical, and hip-hop dance. Devoted to the philosophy that dance is an art, not a competitive sport, IDA provides the ideal dance education for all its students. Students with professional aspirations are able to make a smooth transition into the college and professional dance worlds and students who dance as a fun hobby are able to do so in a positive, supportive, non-competitive environment. The studio’s mission is to teach dance as an art form and to give back to the community through dance. IDA accomplishes that goal throughout the year with performances and fundraisers to support many charities. Tickets to the concert are $20 each and will be available at the door and the after-party tickets are $5.00 for advance tickets, or $10.00 at the door. To reserve tickets ahead of time or for more information, please call Jamie Lipskin at 215-628-0600. Institute of Dance Artistry locations are at 400 Commerce Drive, Fort Washington, PA and 625 W.

"NINE" TO PREMIERE AT MISSOURI THEATRE Missouri Contemporary Ballet (MCB) is proud to present “Nine”. This production will be held at Missouri Theatre on Thursday, November 20th at 7:30pm and Friday, November 21st at 7:30 pm. Celebrating their ninth season, this production will feature five works; three world premieres, one MCB premiere, and one work from their repertoire. The first piece is an original dance work choreographed by MCB’s Artistic/Executive Director, Karen Mareck Grundy. Diving into a more passionate side of her artistry, Karen’s choreography “9 Gigs” focuses on the new generation of humans and their obsessive attachment to multi-media; lacking the insight of seeing the beautiful things in the world. The second piece is choreographed by MCB’s Resident Choreographer, Shannon Lee West. This premiere dance work includes the use of balloons and the majestic movement of weightless execution. Shannon’s choreographic vocabulary indulges the audience into a flight of imagery, which focuses on body awareness, level changes, buoyancy, and the elements of time and sequencing. The third piece is choreographed by Joshua Blake Carter of Giordano Dance Chicago. Joshua'™s work entitled "Ripen" began as a work-in-progress created for the Dance Chance Chicago in 2012. The completed work premiered on October 11, 2013 at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, and was awarded The Producer'™s Panel Prize by The Ruth Page Foundation. His impish sense of ensemble and collaborative orchestration, creates variations of boundless movement gestures and uses spacial elements to execute this award winning choreographic installation. The fourth piece was created and choreographed by Kameron Saunders entitled "Finding Light."€ This 15 and a half minute work, in three sections, stemmed from MCB's company dancers (2 men and 3 women) and the balletic energy that each dancer incorporated into the artistic creation of the piece. The dance work as a whole, plays with the bodies in space and explores many different relationships with solo work, ensemble work, and extensive partnering as-well. Tickets are $16-$32 for adults and $4-$16 for students and youth. Our Opening Night, November 20th, is Student Night. Students and youth tickets are only $4-$8. Student and youth tickets are intended for currently enrolled college, K-12, and MCB students. Tickets can be purchased atthe Missouri Theatre box office, 573-882-3781, or through the Missouri Contemporary Ballet’s website www.missouricontemporaryballet.com. Founded in 2006, Missouri Contemporary Ballet is Columbia’s resident professional dance company that is committed to creating and presenting high-quality productions and educational opportunities through the art of contemporary ballet. MCB strives to increase the appreciation of contemporary ballet through educational outreach programs, emphasizing innovative, athletic, and high-quality performances. MCB seeks to collaborate with emerging artists and offer the opportunity to create unique works, enhancing audience experience.

Split Bill November 20 - 23, 2014 at 7:30pm Muriel Schulman Theater* 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 (enter on Banker Street) *LOCATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE Please visit www.triskelionarts.org for updated info. The Split Bill program is designed to support emerging dance artists looking for a stepping-stone between the showcase format and full, evening-length self-production. At least two of the participating artists or companies will be selected to share a run as part of the Triskelion Arts Presents program during the 2015-2016 Season. November’s series features seymour//dancecollective, Julia Jurgilewicz for RedCurrant Collective, Barkin/Selissen Project, and The People Movers. TICKETS: $16 PURCHASE: http://sbnov2014.brownpapertickets.com/ Schedule Thursday, November 20: seymour//dancecollective and Julia Jurgilewicz for RedCurrant Collective Friday, November 21: seymour//dancecollective and The People Movers Saturday, November 22: Barkin/Selissen Project and The People Movers Sunday, November 23: Barkin/Selissen Project and Julia Jurgilewicz for RedCurrant Collective About the Artists seymour//dancecollective premieres Median, a work about race in a “post-racial” society. Using Al Young’s poem A Dance for Militant Dilettantes and Ralph Ellison’s novel Invisible Man as an entry point, the piece takes a raw approach to format, where text, music, and movement are all on equal footings of expression and precedent. The collective lays bare the central ideas and challenges for the audience to draw their own conclusions from our explorations/expositions. Chafin Seymour took his first African dance class at age 4 in Brooklyn. From that time forward, his training and experience in dance have been investigative and eclectic. He received his BFA with Distinction from The Ohio State University Department of Dance in 2012. As a choreographer, Chafin strives to make work that encompasses disparate influences with the intention of crossing boundaries culturally and aesthetically. To this end, he founded seymour//dancecollective in 2011. This group works collaboratively in an intensive process meant to encourage creative rapport and idea exchange. The group works on a project-to-project basis with a rotating roster of curated artists. Julia Jurgilewicz, in partnership with RedCurrant Collective, premieres her first full-length work, Dust, a mythical quintet for five women. The piece explores the convergence of her two passions: dance and fantasy fiction novels by using movement, in the format of a novel, to tell a story. Armed with sophisticated technical vocabulary, character commitment through gesture, a flair for understatement, and strong group dynamics, it aims to ignite an audience’s imagination. Julia Jurgilewicz is a New England native who has been choreographing and performing in New York, nationally, and abroad for six years. She graduated from Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, where she met her fellow members of RedCurrant Collective, a group of artist who support each other to create and show work. Julia has had the pleasure of performing in two seasons at the Metropolitan Opera in Aida, Don Giovanni, and Parsifal. She has performed with the companies Mark Dendy, LEVYdance, Bodystories: Teresa Fellion Dance, The Anata Project, Johannes Weiland, and Jillian Pena. Currently, Julia dances for Erica Essner Performance Co-op and Suzanne Beahrs Dance, and is the administrative consultant for the Charles Weidman Dance Foundation. The People Movers premiere And He Saw That It Was Good, with music composed by Sontag Shogun. The piece takes its inspiration from Jose Saramago’s novel Cain, as well as excerpts from the bible and modern-day stories about faith. It examines the idea that tests of faith are the supreme indicator of one’s character and the basis upon which one is judged and then punished or rewarded. The People Movers is a contemporary dance company that creates and performs original works by creative director Kate Ladenheim (14-15 Leimay Fellow at CAVE). The People Movers' work reveals the abstract and inherently performative qualities of the world through complex and highly athletic physical expressions. There is a constant search for the relevance in dance as an art form. Ladenheim founded The People Movers in January 2012 as a platform to explore her choreographic goals and ideas. Her group has been selected to show work at the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, the DUMBO Dance Festival, the CURRENT SESSIONS, NYC10 Dance, Dixon Place, Symphony Space, and Triskelion Arts. The company has enjoyed residencies through The Field’s Subsidized Block Rehearsal Space Rental Program, White Wave Dance, and with The Ballet and Dance Center in Syracuse, New York. The People Movers were also commissioned by the Juventas New Music Ensemble to create HackPolitik, a new contemporary ballet based on the Hacktivist collective Anonymous. Ladenheim also works in marketing and advocacy for the arts, and is the founder of CRAWL, a series of day-long arts events in NYC (launch: December 2014). www.peoplemoversdance.com | www.jointhecrawl.com “stunning… an interplay of oppositions… pure, unbounded physicality meeting intricate, balletic delicacy” (The Dance Enthusiast) BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT presents Skyfire, a collaborative event inspired by impressions of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, featuring choreography by Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen. Crafted to travel through a surreal rendering of space and time, this abstraction draws upon universal ideas and images surrounding love, betrayal, labor, and the pure joy of existence, set to an original score by James Guastaferro and Zac Selissen. BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT, a NYC-based contemporary dance company, presents the choreography of Artistic Directors Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen through live performance and workshops. Collaborators include Jim Simons (mathematician), Sirius String Quartet, Ray Anderson and Band, Falkor Systems (autonomous pet drone), Sally Taylor, Reggie Watts, James Guastaferro (composer), Lindsey Boise (projection), and more. B/S P has been presented across the U.S and abroad including Jacob's Pillow, SUNY Stony Brook's Staller Center, Dixon Place, The Flea, Tempe Center for the Arts, UferStudios in Berlin, Germany, Yogyajakarta, Indonesia via 3D Hologram, the Edinburgh International Conference Center in Scotland as part of the Booking Dance Festival, and Grange Hall on Martha’s Vineyard for the inaugural ConSenses festival. Barkin received her BA from UCLA and has worked with Doug Elkins, Isabel Gotzkowsky, and Carolyn Dorfman among others. Selissen received his BFA from Butler University and is a member of the Limón Dance Company. Both have been long time members of Janis Brenner & Dancers. For more info, please visit barkinselissenproject.com. “Some groups … give strong performances, others offer new and intriguing choreography, astute musical choices or a deep emotional connection. Barkin/Selissen, however, has the lot.” (Kelly Apter, The Scotsman, August 2014)

"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

Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance organization since 1970, makes its annual return to the Apollo stage to present the New York Premiere of its first evening-length narrative work, CARMEN.maquia, choreographed by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano, in a one-night-only engagement on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 8pm. The performance is sponsored by Goya Foods. Tickets are $28-$58 and are available online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at (800) 745-3000, or in person at the Apollo Theater Box Office at 253 W. 125th Street, NYC. For more information, visit www.ballethispanico.org. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia, like Georges Bizet’s iconic opera about a passionate gypsy, is riveting from start to finish. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with the subtleties of the Spanish paso doble and flamenco dances. A stunning set design by Luis Crespo and minimalist black-and-white costumes by fashion designer David Delfin evoke the paintings of Pablo Picasso. Highly original and full of elaborate partnering, CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying reimagining of this tragic tale. “Storytelling and movement is intrinsic to our culture and woven into the fabric of who we are as human beings, and I am thrilled to give New York audiences the opportunity to experience the story of Carmen through the eyes of a contemporary Spanish choreographer,” said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director of Ballet Hispanico. “Gustavo Ramírez Sansano has created a seductive, bold, and brilliant work that will delight and inspire.”

Manhattan Youth Ballet and Manhattan Movement & Arts Center present The Knickerbocker Suite from December 12-14, 2014 and December 19-21, 2014 at the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, 248 West 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) in the Lincoln Center area. Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for students. Tickets are available at manhattanmovement.com/calendar or by calling 212-787-1178. Performances: Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays at 3pm and 7pm, Sundays at 3pm. The Knickerbocker Suite features New York City landmarks, such as The Statue of Liberty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and NY sports teams, weaved into the time-honored holiday tale of The Nutcracker. Classic Nutcracker scenes like “The Land of the Snow” are transformed into a snowy frenzy of shoppers dancing in and out of stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s for last minute gifts. Perhaps one of the more well-known scenes, “Mother Ginger and her Polichinelles,” will be played by the Statue of Liberty and dancing immigrants who just arrived from Ellis Island. With scenes of shoppers on Fifth Avenue, the angels at Rockefeller Center, the Statue of Liberty, NY sports teams and the romance of Central Park in the winter, The Knickerbocker Suite is a celebration of New York City, its culture and the magic of the holiday season. The production with a story by artist, Elliott Arkin, features an opening scene with narration by Tony Award winner, Michael Cerveris; the choreography of Brian Reeder, Deborah Wingert, Daniel Ulbricht, Marina Stavitskaya, Nick Kepley & Natalia Boesch; illustrations by Katy DeHay and photography by Erin Baiano. About Manhattan Youth Ballet Modeled with an emphasis on European classical ballet, Manhattan Youth Ballet (MYB) offers world-class training in a nurturing environment focused on discipline, precision and artistry. MYB is the culmination of Ms. Rose Caiola’s effort for the past seventeen years to create a viable, curriculum-based ballet academy in Manhattan in order to serve the needs of the multifaceted community. Principal members of the faculty have received their training in schools such as the The Kirov Ballet, School of American Ballet, and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. The faculty strives to bring out the individual potential of each student with an emphasis on artistry as well as technique to create truly versatile dancers for the current dance world. Manhattan Youth Ballet has acquired a reputation for excellent teaching in an intimate and individually supportive environment. The school’s graduates have danced professionally with American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, Ballet de España, San Francisco Ballet and Complexions. Education is a top priority at Manhattan Youth Ballet and the school has numerous community outreach programs to promote dance education. Since moving to its new home at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center in September 2008, over 2,500 New York City school children have participated in lecture demonstrations and/or been MYB’s invited guests at full-length performances. For more information, visit www.manhattanyouthballet.org. About Manhattan Movement & Arts Center Manhattan Movement & Arts Center was developed by Rose Caiola as the home of the Manhattan Youth Ballet. Ms. Caiola, a former dancer and actress, founded the academy in the fall of 1994 as Studio Maestro at 48 W. 68th Street, and today serves as the youth ballet’s executive artistic director. As the ballet academy grew, the search for a larger space inspired in Ms. Caiola a highly personal vision of a studio and theater complex that would encompass all aspects of dance education and performance. mmac opened its doors in June 2008, occupying a dramatic bi-level space within The Element, a luxury high-rise condominium. mmac’s theater, has become a popular off-broadway venue for both sit down and limited run productions. mmac’s studios host a variety of classes including open ballet and fitness, a full mmac kids curriculum, as well as a number of Broadway Workshops and rehearsals with stars such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Natalie Portman, and Alec Baldwin.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College and Anton Krilloff present a Russian holiday fairy tale, The Snow Maiden (Снегурочка), on Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 4pm.

Ticket prices range from $35 to $65 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tues-Sat, 1pm-6pm). The running time is 1 hour and 10 minutes with no intermission. In this magical Russian Christmas version of the Cinderella story, Grandfather Frost (the Russian Santa Claus) transforms a poor young girl into the beautiful Snow Maiden after proving her worthiness. This delightful children's extravaganza incorporates traditional Russian songs, dances and elaborate costumes to create a winter wonderland. At the end of the performance, every child in the audience will receive a Christmas candy gift box. The festivities begin with a musical interlude of Russian folk music played by the ensemble Barynya, followed by entertainment and riddles by skomorokhi, traditional Russian clowns who historically traveled from town to town, performing in the streets and at fairs, singing comedic songs and acting out satirical sketches. As the pre-show comes to a close, Grandfather Frost (the Russian Santa Claus) is introduced, who acts as a type of narrator for the musical fairy tale to follow. The Snow Maiden premiered in 2008 in Moscow. The creative team on this show includes an honored Russian writer and director Boris Boreyko (The Bremen Town Musicians), director and choreographer Andrey Ivanov, and costume designer Tatyana Kudryavtseva. All costumes were created by the Mariinsky Theatre tailors. www.thesnowmaiden.com.

Are you in need of a sultry Spanish night or a bohemian 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. "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. Allow for traffic and parking which is available next door or across the street.

The Joffrey Ballet is celebrated for "wise casting, wickedly talented dancers, [and] world-class choreographers" (Berkeleyside). Son of Chamber Symphony by Stanton Welch, which premiered to rave reviews at Jacob's Pillow, is set to John Adams's restless score, and Alexander Ekman's West Coast premiere of the rambunctious Episode 31 opens to urgent, explosive rhythms before settling into a serene duet dance to a reading of Christina Rossetti's poem "Color." Val Caniparoli's abstract work Incantations is set to a score by Russian minimalist composer Alexandre Rabinovitch-Barakovsky, and continuous movement of the piece creates a zen-like spiral of movement and emotion.

"There has been no company I have been so glad to discover as Noche Flamenca and, above all, its lead dancer, Soledad Barrio. I can think of no current ballet star in the world as marvelous as she." —Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times Sizzling flamenco electrifies the stage as this Madrid-based company of dancers, singers and musicians provides an authentic look at a fiery and expressive art form. Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca promise a passionate journey through the very heart and soul of flamenco. All aspects of flamenco – song, dance, and music – are interrelated, creating a true communal spirit among the group’s ten performers. But Barrio is the indisputable star, a great artist without pretense, who makes you aware that, above its virtuosic feet, flamenco is an art of curves, arcs and circles. Her body is her soul’s instrument, ensnared by the music, and you feel yourself fortunate to be in the same space with her. Tickets: $23-55 (Prices include $3 restoration fee)
