Online ticketing available at www.theaterforthenewcity.net NEW YORK, January 4 -- Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, will present its 41st annual Thunderbird American Dancers Dance Concert and Pow Wow from February 5 to 14, 2016. There will be dances, stories and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northeast, Southwest and Great Plains regions. The event has become a treasured New York tradition for celebrating our diversity by honoring the culture of our first Americans. A Pow-Wow is more than just a spectator event: it is a joyous reunion for native peoples nationwide and an opportunity for the non-Indian community to voyage into the philosophy and beauty of Native culture. Traditionally a gathering and sharing of events, Pow-Wows have come to include spectacular dance competitions, exhibitions, and enjoyment of traditional foods. Highlights will include storytelling by Matoka Eagle (Santo Domingo, Tewa), a Hoop Dance by Marie Ponce (Cherokee) and Michael Taylor (Choctaw), a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance (from the Northern Plains people), a Stomp Dance (from the Southeastern tribes), a Shawl Dance (from the Oklahoma tribes), a Deer Dance (from the Yaqui Tribes of Southern Arizona), a Fancy Dance (from the Oklahoma tribes) and a Robin Dance and Smoke Dance (from the Iroquois). As the audience enters the theater, they will be serenaded by the Heyna Second Son Singers (various tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance/Friendship Dance (in evening shows) and a Contest Dance (in matinees). After the program, the dancers stay for photographs and to meet the audience. Pageantry is an important component of the event, and all participants are elaborately dressed. There is a wealth of cultural information encoded in the movements of each dance. More than ten distinct tribes will be represented in the performance. Throughout the performance, all elements are explained in depth through detailed introductions by the troupe's Director and Emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago). An educator, Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American crafts, jewelry will be sold in the TNC lobby. Matinees are kids' days, when children under twelve accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult are admitted for $1.00 (adults $10). At the conclusion of these matinees, young audience members are welcome to the stage to be photographed with the dancers. This component of the show was inspired by the troupe's school residencies. Says Louis Mofsie, the Thunderbirds' artistic director, "Educators try to supplement the kids' knowledge of Native Americans and to teach them about different cultures. But the emphasis is on how we used to live, in the past tense. The kids are never taught how to relate to us in the present. Now they can meet us, and be photographed with us, and it's present tense. It's more than just seeing us on stage." He adds, "Learning about different cultures is important to enlarging the kids' perspective, particularly in light of what's going on in the world. We're in trouble today because we don't understand different cultures." The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers are the oldest resident Native American dance company in New York. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women, all New Yorkers, who were descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago and San Blas tribes. Prominent among the founders were Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago) and his sister, Josephine Mofsie (deceased), Rosemary Richmond (Mohawk), Muriel Miguel (Cuna/Rapahannock) and Jack Preston (Seneca, deceased). Some were in school at the time; all were "first generation," meaning that their parents had been born on reservations. They founded the troupe to keep alive the traditions, songs and dances they had learned from their parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York and some who were passing through. Jack Preston taught the company its Iroquois dances, including the Robin Dance and Fish Dance. To these were added dances from the plains, including the Hopi Buffalo Dance, and newer dances including the Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance. The company was all-volunteer, a tradition that exists to today. Members range in professions from teachers to hospital patient advocates, tree surgeons and computer engineers. Now Louis Mofsie says, "To be going for 50 years is just amazing to me, and to be able to do the work we do." The troupe made a home in the old McBurney YMCA on 23rd Street and Seventh Ave. Within three or four years, they were traveling throughout the continental U.S., expanding and sharing their repertoire and gleaning new dances on the reservations. A number of Thunderbird members are winners of Fancy Dance contests held on reservations, where the standard of competition is unmistakably high. The Thunderbird-TNC collaboration began in 1975, when Crystal Field directed a play called "The Only Good Indian." For research, Ms. Field lived on a Hopi reservation for three weeks. In preparation for the project, she met Louis Mofsie, Artistic Director of the group and a representative of the American Indian Community House. They made plans for a Pow Wow to celebrate the Winter Solstice. The event has continued annually to this day. The troupe's appearances benefit college scholarship funds for Native American students. The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers Scholarship Fund receives its sole support from events like this concert (it receives no government or corporate contributions), and has bestowed over 350 scholarships to-date. Theater for the New City has been presenting Pow-Wows annually as a two-week event since 1976, with the box office donated to these scholarships. CRITICS ARE INVITED to all performances.

The greatest love story ever told is brought to life through Malcolm Burn's passionate choreography and Sergei Prokofiev's soaring emotional score. William Shakespeare's masterful play is known the world over for the powerful duel between the overwhelming emotions that rule the human soul: love and hatred. Propelled by a series of events that ultimately consume the storyline's two young lovers - Juliet Capulet and Romeo Montague - the bard's tragic tale has been woven together from the familiar threads of the ecstasy of a first love, the intensity of a violet hatred, and the wrenching heartbreak of loss. Colored by the richness of Prokofiev's evocative and romantic score, this tale of young love destroyed by hate returns just in time for the Valentine's Day weekend.

Atmospheric scenery transports audiences through starry skies to the tangled forests of Neverland and the decks of Hook’s Jolly Roger.

Lauren Anderson, the First African-American Promoted to Principal Dancer at Houston Ballet, to Host 3rd Annual FLORIDA YOUTH DANCE GALA at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth – February 13. Founder/Director Mauricio Cañete Will Present 50+ Dancers from Leading Dance Academies Around the State in a Romantic, High-Stepping Salute to Valentine’s Day. Following this year’s sold-out success and once again sponsored by Só Dança . Dedicated to “celebrating and gathering talented dancers” from all over the state, the FLORIDA YOUTH DANCE GALA will “showcase new choreography, finalists from major dance competitions and some electrifying young dancers, resulting in one of the most memorable dance event of the coming season,” said Cañete, a former dancer with Houston Ballet, Ballet Florida and Ballet Eloelle, who has wowed audiences in England, Russia, Hong Kong, Canada, Austria, Germany, Japan, China and all over the Far East. “My goal is to give the next generation of dancers the opportunity to perform in a professional environment. In fact, we have already confirmed participation of dance academies in Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Brandon, Fort Myers, Hallandale Beach, Jacksonville, Jupiter, Miami, Oakland Park, Orlando, Palm Beach Gardens, Port St. Lucie, Sarasota, Tampa and West Palm Beach.” What is most gratifying to Cañete – not only as a dancer but as producer of the annual FLORIDA YOUTH DANCE GALA – is that so many of his participating dancers have already gone on to major dance schools around the world: Francisco Serrano from Sarasota Cuban Ballet School went to The Royal Ballet School in London; Aran Bell from The Arts of Classical Ballet went to the American Ballet Theater Studio Company in New York; Tatiana Melendez from All American Classical Ballet, Madison Russo from Ballet East and Carina Castaneda from Boca Ballet Theatre, all went to Houston Ballet Academy; and from the School of Ballet Arts, Victoria Volpe went to New York’s School of American Ballet and Daniela O'Neil went to the Pre-Professional Program at Pittsburg Ballet Theatre. Reserved seating tickets are $30 for orchestra, $20 for balcony, and can be purchased online at www.FloridaYouthDanceGala.com; or by phone at 855.222.2849; or via the Gala’s Facebook page.

Having participated in premiere division's workshops, I received the most precise and professional training. Nadege hottier treats her school like a "boutique" in which each student receives the care and attention it takes to create a clean and polished foundation. Premiere division helps dancers create such a strong and secure basis that, I believe, promotes strong versatile dancers. Hallie Lahm who has worked with Premiere Division for three years

“Some of the dance steps, phrases and constructions by choreographer Pam Tanowitz are among the finest being made anywhere today,” declared The New York Times about Heaven on One’s Head when the work premiered at The Joyce in 2014. A 2009 Bessie Award winner and a “clear sighted modernist” (The New Yorker), Tanowitz brings Heaven back to The Joyce along with a Joyce-commissioned world premiere, an abstract love letter to romantic ballets set to a new electronic score by Dan Siegler. The evening features live music by the FLUX Quartet and displays Tanowitz’s distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework.

BULLY is a collaborative physical response to the caricatures of horror movies, and how a witness responds to discomfort. The company questions how proximity, invitation, and risk are a means to ignite our discomfort, an emotional state that leads us to various responses – judgment, laughter, and empathy. They focus on showing how a range of physical events can generate that state for a multitude of responses to lead to self-reflection, while giving homage to the horror movie caricatures they’ve grown to love.

NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET to perform at New York Live Arts as part of the series Legends & Visionaries 2015 February 24-27, 2016 New York Theatre Ballet will perform at New York Live Arts from February 24-27, 2016. New York Live Arts is located at 219 W. 19th Street, NYC. Performances: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm; and Saturday at 2pm and 7:30pm. Tickets start at $15, and are available online at http://newyorklivearts.org/event/nytb_2016, by calling the Live Arts box office at 212.691.6500, or by visiting the box office, Monday-Saturday 1pm - 9pm and Sunday 1pm – 8pm. New York Theatre Ballet will present three ballets in an unforgettable evening. The program includes an untitled World Premiere set to Philip Glass' Piano Etudes choreographed by Steven Melendez and Zhong-Jing Fang, featuring the NYU Steel Drum Ensemble led by Jonathan Haas, Director of NYU Percussion Program, as well as Jerome Robbins' Antique Epigraphs and Richard Alston's Such Longing. Melendez and Fang’s untitled World Premiere piece centers around the Individual, exploring one’s unique experiences and feelings. Each audience member will find a reflection of them self and walk away with something different. The company will also revive Jerome Robbins' Antique Epigraphs, staged by Kyra Nicols to Debussy’s “6 Épigraphes antiques”, and Richard Alston's Such Longing to “Mazurkas” by Frédéric Chopin. Steven Melendez was born in New York City in 1986 and started his ballet training as part of the LIFT Scholarship Program at Ballet School New York at the age of 7. As a teenager he attended summer intensive programs with the San Francisco Ballet Academy, Houston Ballet Academy and Kaatsbaan International School. In 2001 Steven joined New York Theatre Ballet as an apprentice and in 2006 was promoted to Principal. While there he performed leading roles in choreographies by Fredrick Ashton, George Balanchine, John Butler, Agnes DeMille, Donald Mahler, Antony Tudor and others. In 2004, while dancing with New York Theatre Ballet, he graduated from the American Ballet Theater Studio Company Associate Program, the program culminated in a performance of Oblivion by Jessica Lang and Continuo by Antony Tudor. Steven returned to New York City in March 2010 for New York Theatre Ballet’s Signature 10 series as a Principal Guest Artist performing José Limon’s Mazurkas and rejoined the company full-time for the following season. In 2011 Steven worked with British choreographer Richard Alston to create his new work A Rugged Flourish and performed Limon’s Moor’s Pavane for NYTB’s Signatures 12. In 2015 Steven celebrated his 15th season with New York Theatre Ballet performing world premieres in works by Pam Tanowitz and Nicolo Fonte and a U.S. premiere of Richard Alston’s Such Longing. He is a frequent guest artist at the Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica and Ballet Palm Beach. Steven is a faculty member of Ballet School New York and also holds an annual summer workshop in Nagoya, Japan. In 2008 Steven received a Diploma from the 5th Rudolf Nureyev International Ballet Competition in Budapest, Hungary. He also received special recognition from head jurist Maya Plisetskya for his second round performance of Onegin. Afterwards, he was invited to perform in the gala entitled Celebrating the Classical Male Dancer and later represented Estonia at the 13th International Baltic Ballet Festival in Riga, Latvia. In 2009 he performed in the Johvi International Ballet Gala for Agnes Oaks’ farewell tour and in 2012 performed at the Jacob’s Pillow International Dance Festival Gala The Men Dancers: From the Horse’s Mouth. Steven is a Van-Lier Fellowship recipient and was a 2012 Clive Barnes Foundation Award Nominee. For the 2006 season Steven was invited to Buenos Aires as a Guest Soloist to perform with Ballet Concierto, directed by Inaki Urlezaga. His repertory there included Carmen(Alonso), Don Quixote (Baryshnikov), Symphonic Variations (Ashton) and Borodin(Ariaz). While performing with Ballet Concierto Steven traveled extensively performing in international ballet galas and festivals in Argentina, New Zealand, Thailand, Venezuela, Ecuador, Estonia, Spain and Italy. In 2007 Steven joined the Vanemuine Theater Ballet Company in Tartu, Estonia, as a Principal dancer. With the Vanemuine Theater he has performed Principal roles in Onegin (Medvedjev), The Nutcracker (Isberg), Giselle (Feco) and Peter Pan (Titova). The leading male role in Par Isberg’s Uinuv Kaunitar (Sleeping Beauty) as well as the title role in Ruslan Stepanov’s Kevade were both choreographed on him. Zhong-Jing Fang was born in Shanghai, China, and received her early training at the Shanghai Ballet School where she trained for seven years. Before joining ABT's Studio Company in 2002, Fang graduated with a major in ballet from the Performing Arts College of Shanghai Drama University. In 2000, Fang was the winner of the famed Prix de Lausanne, and winner of the Rudolf Nureyev Foundation Prize at the Ninth International Ballet Competition in Paris. In June 2001, Fang won First Prize in the Junior Division of the Helsinki International Ballet Competition. Most recently, she won first place in the Junior Division of the Shanghai International Ballet Competition. In April 2003, Fang joined the main Company of the American Ballet Theatre as an apprentice and, in January 2004, became a member of the corps de ballet. Her roles with the Company include Aya in La Bayadère, Twig in Cinderella, Prayer in Coppélia, Zulma in Giselle, the Old Mother in The Green Table, Nanny and the Sugar Plum Fairy in Alexei Ratmansky's The Nutcracker, a Harlot and Rosaline's Friend in Romeo and Juliet, the Fairy Canari qui chante (Canary) in The Sleeping Beauty, the Hungarian Princess and Lead Czardas in Swan Lake, the Prelude in Les Sylphides, Ceres in Sylvia and roles in AfterEffect, Black Tuesday, Continuo, Kaleidoscope, Sinfonietta and Symphonic Variations. She created a leading role in Pretty Good Year. Ms. Fang’s performances with American Ballet Theatre are sponsored by Fred and Irene Shen. Virtuoso timpanist Jonathan Haas has raised the status of the timpani to that of a solo instrument throughout his unique career that has spanned more than twenty years. From classical concertos to jazz and rock & roll, from symphonic masterpieces to the most experimental compositions of living composers, Haas has championed, commissioned, unearthed and celebrated music for his instrument, becoming, as Ovation magazine hailed him, "The Paganini of the timpani." His concerts on the world's most prestigious musical stages and his ground-breaking recordings have delighted critics and listeners on both sides of the ocean. The New York Times wrote, "Wherever one finds a percussion instrument waiting to be rubbed, shook, struck or strummed, [Haas] is probably nearby, ready to fulfill his duties with consummate expertise... he is a masterful young percussionist." Most recently, Haas has garnered widespread praise and attention for his performances of Philip Glass' Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra, a piece conceived by Haas and completed because of his quest to spotlight the timpani. The Concerto Fantasy features not only two timpanists, but also 14 timpani, all placed downstage in front of the orchestra. In 2000, Haas performed the world premiere of the piece with the American Symphony, and he has subsequently performed it at Carnegie Hall and in Phoenix, New Jersey, Baltimore, Pasadena, Long Beach (California), St. Louis and Mexico City. Haas also performed the European premiere with the BBC Symphony in London, the world premiere of a chamber orchestra version with the Iris Chamber Orchestra in Memphis, the Czechoslovakian premiere with the Prague Symphony Orchestra at the International Music Prague Spring Festival, the Norwegian premiere with the Bergen Philharmonic, and he will perform the Australian premiere with the Sydney Symphony and the Turkish premiere with the Istanbul Philharmonic. Haas' successful efforts to expand the timpani repertoire have led him to commission and premiere more than 25 works by composers in addition to Philip Glass such as Stephen Albert, Marius Constant, Irwin Bazelon, Eric Ewazen, Thomas Hamilton, Robert Hall Lewis, Jean Piche, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Andrew Thomas, and many others. NYU Steel is a significant performance ensemble within the NYU Steinhardt Percussion Program, where Professor Jonathan Haas serves as Director. Under the direction of Joshua Quillen, NYU Steel is dedicated to exploring the art of steel pans to the fullest, performing rare compositions and arrangements ranging in scope from Philip Glass and Jason Trueting, to David Rudder and Lord Kitchener from Trinidad and Tobago, where the art form was invented. The ensemble presents several unique performances each year, collaborating with composers globally, while enriching the steel drum repertoire. Recent noteworthy accomplishments include the exclusive recording of Philip Glass’ Piano Etudes, arranged by Joshua Quillen, which was released by Orange Mountain Music in May 2011, as well as promotional and tribute performances for Glass’ 75th birthday. NYU Steel emphasizes an artistically and culturally diverse array of performance styles that break with traditional boundaries surrounding the esoteric genre of steel pan music. NYU Steel seeks to create a bond between artist and audience that warrants an environment of creativity and community. With a hunger for innovation and desire to explore all the possibilities of steel pan music, NYU Steel has created the most unique ensemble of its kind, drawing from the rich cultural sounds of the Caribbean while incorporating the works of prominent composers such as Philip Glass in order to gain the instrument prominence on the world stage. As part of a global initiative instituted in collaboration with New York University, NYU Steel is constantly pursuing ways to reach audiences in an international scope, driving to cultivate a niche in the world stage. At the same time, NYU Steel continues to nurture relationships with the local community, intent on becoming leaders in education, performance, and creativity. Whether engaging audiences with upbeat island tunes or dazzling them with the mellifluous sounds of Philip Glass, NYU Steel is becoming one of the premier university steel pan ensembles on the East coast. Enriching both the community and the city, NYU Steel is discovering all the possibilities when you combine glass and steel.

THE PERFORMANCE JAM Workshop in Contact Improvisation & Performance Research with SCOTT WELLS February 26-28, 2016 Tanzfabrik Berlin COST: Early bird 150€, thereafter 170€ REGISTRATION: For registration details and workshop questions please contact me by e-mail at xs4jan@gmx.de EVENT WEBSITE: http://contact-improvisation.net/2015/10/02/performance-jam-workshop-by-scott-wells-februar-26-28-2016/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/events/839951566118693/ WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION Scott: „My main work is as a choreographer and I rigorously investigate partnering and acrobatic movement ideas. This allows me to bring unique movement vocabulary and training to my workshops.“ We will also work with ensemble dancing. Dancing, contacting with connection and awareness of the group. „I’d like to create an atmosphere that has more intention and group focus than a jam, but less stringent than a formal performance. We’ll develop our ensemble work and gain performance skills and resources. Contact Improvisation will be an element of our practice, an element to mix with soloing, ensemble and compositional work.“ We will take single elements (e.g. a flying skill) into scores. We will use this progression: 1) Connecting with yourself, using body sensations or images as they come up or the stories in your head. Noticing impulses to move, being able to feel your impulses, and pick which ones to follow. 2) Connecting with others (ensemble), awareness of others in the group. For example, if your working with levels, can you track the others’ levels as you move. Mirroring or copying others is one of our skills for this. 3) What is interesting to watch? Connecting with the watchers (audience). Do you sense what is interesting for them to see? Do you sense what place onstage will be psychologically dynamic OR make the picture of what is happening see-able. This is composition. Scott Wells will support this score through teaching contemporary dance technique, improvisation, contact and partnering. Scott’s style of contact is athletic and emphasizes freedom of movement, flying, fluid acrobatics (easy to advanced), safety, precision, pleasure and technique. What students often like best in Scott’s classes is the variance between the meditative, listening, slow and sensual dancing and the fun, playful, very physical dancing. And students appreciate how the scary or advanced moves are safe, relaxed and made possible. BIO Scott Wells Scott Wells discovered the pleasure of Contact Improvisation in 1981 shortly after becoming obsessed with the struggles of modern dance. He received his M.F.A. in Dance (the highest academic degree for dance) from the University of Illinois in 1991. During his university training Wells received the Creative and Performing Arts Fellowship, (University of Illinois), Martha Hill Award form the American Dance Festival and Bates Dance Festival Emerging Choreographer Commission. Scott Wells, Artistic Director of Scott Wells & Dancers, has created new works in San Francisco every year since 1992 and is known for his inventive and “electrifying” partnering. In 2010 and 2005 he received the Izzie, The Isadora Duncan Award for Outstanding Choreography (San Francisco’s most prestigious dance award). Scott has been selected by Dance Magazine as “one of the 25 To Watch”, received a GOLDIE (with Kathleen Hermesdorf) and the Lester Horton Award for Choreography (Los Angeles, 1995). He has taught at A.C.T, the San Francisco Conservatory for Dance and UC Berkeley and was an artist in residence at ODC Theater. Wells has been practicing Alexander Technique for twenty five years and BMC for fifteen. He recently completed his certification in Radical Counseling. Scott has created works for skateboarders, for boxers and choreographed West Side Story for Sonoma State University. http://scottwellsdance.com/performance VIDEOS of Scott Wells & Dancers: https://vimeo.com/71350780 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAxE41NM5Pg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBnus7agXHk https://vimeo.com/132053009 https://vimeo.com/69625456 SCHEDULE February 26-28, 2016 – Friday: 4-8pm – Saturday: 10am-6pm (break 1-2pm) …than public Contact Jam: 7-10pm – Sunday: 11am-6pm (break 2-3pm) LOCATION Tanzfabrik Berlin Möckernstr.68, 10965 Berlin (Kreuzberg) Studio No.4 http://www.tanzfabrik-berlin.de/en/studios TRAFFIC LINKS U6 & 7 Yorckstrasse / Mehringdamm S1 & 2 Yorckstrasse Bus M19 Katzbachstrasse https://www.google.de/maps?daddr=10965+Berlin,+M%C3%B6ckernstr.+68 PHOTO CREDIT David Papas

Choreography as they usher in their 15th season with an ambitious new work, Vermilion. Referencing the brilliant red pigment seen in stop signs and exit signs, red carpets, bing cherries, cardinals, lipstick and blood, Vermilion corkscrews down through meshed experiential layers using subtly shifting physicalities, risky improvisations, and tightly choreographed scenarios in pursuit of a deeply visceral embodiment. Intimate yet sweeping, the piece ponders connection and isolation in an homage to contemporary culture, which is both cohesive and brittle, and revels in the mysterious-familiar through the body in all its miraculous everyday. Vermilion is choreographed by Elizabeth Dishman, in collaboration with the performers: Myssi Robinson, Julie Seal, Lynda Senisi, and Anthony Shevlin. The lush and quirky score is composed and arranged by Jeremy McDonald, and performed by himself (upright bass), Christopher McDonald (pump organ), Kristin Slipp (vocals), and Alec Spiegelman (woodwinds). Dishman + Co. Choreography is joined by guest artists Brian McGinnis and Jennifer Sydor, who will be presenting Weatherone. Performed and choreographed by McGinnis and Sydor with a musical score by Daniel Fabricatore, this work is an exploration of the limitless power of shifting natural forces. Ultimately, we must surrender as transcendence beckons us forth. More Info: www.triskelionarts.org

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College presents Moscow Festival Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet / Carmen Saturday, March 5, 2016 at 8pm Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2015-16 season with Moscow Festival Ballet’s double bill of one-act ballets, Romeo and Juliet and Carmen, on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at 8pm. Tickets are $36-45 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm). The power of love and the finality of death collide as two of the greatest tragic masterpieces of all time are paired in an evening of one-act ballets. The program begins with a restaging of Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet, set to the music of Tchaikovsky and choreographed by legendary Bolshoi principle dancer Elena Radchenko. This is followed by Alberto Alonso’s fiery Carmen, inspired by Bizet’s sensuous and spirited opera. Moscow Festival Ballet’s 2016 spring tour of Romeo and Juliet will feature Maria Kluyeva, Maria Sokolnikova, and Olga Gudkova sharing the role of the ill-fated Juliet, with her star-crossed lover Romeo double-cast with Nurlan Kinerbaev and Dmitry Sitkevich. The rest of the cast includes Evgeniy Rudakov (Tibald), Anton Baglikov (Mercutio), Denis Onufriychuk (Paris), Dmitry Romanov (Lord Capulet), Natalia Ivanova (Lady Capulet), Alina Stenina (Nurse), and Ivan Zviagincev (Priest). Created especially for celebrated Russian ballerina Maya Plisetskaya (1925-2015), Carmen features a score by Plisetskaya’s husband Rodion Shchedrin (inspired heavily by Georges Bizet’s opera) with choreography by Alberto Alonso. It received its world premiere in 1967 in Moscow. Casting for Carmen includes Maria Klyeva (Carmen), Alexander Daev (Don José), Denis Onufriychuk (the Toreador), Evgeniy Rudakov (Corregidor), and Elena Khorosheva (Fate), with Olga Sharikova, Malika Tokkozhina, Hanna Zimovchenko, and Daria Lednikova as the Tobacco Girls. About Moscow Festival Ballet The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet Sergei Radchenko sought to realize his vision of a company which would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company within the framework of Russian classic ballet. Under his direction, an exciting new company of leading dancers from across Russia have staged new productions of timeless classics such as Giselle, Don Quixote, Paquita and Carmen. Since its inception, the Moscow Festival Ballet has completed two tours of Europe, with extraordinary receptions in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and the Netherlands. Two tours of the United Kingdom, including capacity audiences at London’s famed Coliseum, have resulted in reengagements during the 1995-96, 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, and 1999-2000 seasons. The Moscow Festival Ballet first toured the United States in the Winter/Spring of 1997 and has returned seven times since then. The company has also performed with great success in Turkey at the Istanbul Festival and in Greece at the Athens Festival, and recently completed a two-month tour of Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Under the direction of Sergei Radchenko, the Moscow Festival Ballet continues to expand its repertoire. In addition to commissioning new works from within Russia and abroad, the company specializes in Twentieth Century full-length ballets such as Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet, Legend of Love, Stone Flower, and The Golden Age. Mr. Radchenko has researched the original choreography and stage productions of several of Marius Petipa’s classic ballets, including new productions in the year 2000 of Don Quixote and Paquita, and a recreation of Jules Perrot’s and Jean Corallli’s Giselle. About Sergei Radchenko, Artistic Director Born in 1944, Sergei Radchenko graduated from the Moscow School of Dance in 1964 and then joined the Bolshoi Ballet, where he worked for 25 years. He danced the entire repertoire at the Boshoi, but enjoyed a special reputation for Spanish dance, particularly the role of the bullfighter in the Bizet-Schedrin Carmen Suite. He is the founder and artistic director of the Moscow Festival Ballet and has achieved a remarkable feat in the establishment and development of this young-but-great Russian ballet company. Mr. Radchenko presents a large number of master-classes, inviting leading teachers from the Bolshoi and Mariinksky theatres to ensure the continuation of the rich traditions of the Russian classical school. Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts’ presentation of Moscow Festival Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet / Carmen is made possible, in part, by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation and The Harkness Foundation for Dance.

Americana looks to the iconic images and interpersonal struggles of the migrating American family during the Great Depression era.

See Between the Lines provokes a response to the moving image. The three works on the program are collaborations with visual artists. In Incidence, a life-size kinetic sculpture created by Howard Connelly is manipulated by the dancers. As dancers reconfigure the sculpture’s puzzle-like parts from vertical to horizontal, it restricts and elevates. Nested is performed with Rosemary Covey’s Not A Day Goes By, a visual art piece created by using eight wood blocks printed on Japanese paper and painted. The work references memory but can also be viewed as purely from nature. Small shimmering flower petals come to life in response to the quick passages of the performers. Wash Over You Part I finds travelers moved along an unpredictable, serene yet powerful river. There are many stopping places but can they get ‘off the boat?” Along the way, you’ll be on a raft, on dry land and on the wrong side of the fence. The only thing to do is pack your bag, stuff your friend into a trunk and let this new work Wash Over You.

Hailing from the Hebei and Henan provinces in the People’s Republic of China, The Golden Dragon Acrobats have toured the United States continuously since 1978. Its members are athletes, actors, and artists who have studied and trained for their craft since early childhood. The group averages 200 performances each year and has toured more than 65 countries across the globe as well as through all 50 states; in fact, they are the only Chinese acrobatic company touring year round in the United States. In 2005, their seven-week run at the New Victory Theater in New York City earned two prestigious New York Drama Desk Award nominations (for Best Choreography and Most Unique Theatrical Experience). The reputation of the company is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form. World renowned impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, and both ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty. The group’s founder, producer, and artistic director, Danny Chang, is one of the world’s leading promoters of Chinese acrobatics. He began his training at the age of eight with his family’s acrobatic school in Taipei, and joined its touring wing, The Golden Dragon Acrobats, at age ten. He is the recipient of many awards, including the prestigious Medal for International Faith and Goodwill by the Republic of China’s Coordination Council for North American Affairs. In 1998, Chang restructured The Golden Dragon Acrobats to form Asian Artists Productions, Inc. (AAPI). While the new company continued to produce and tour The Golden Dragon Acrobats, AAPI expanded to create theatrically elaborate shows like Circo Magnifico, Dream, Pagoda, Cirque D’or, Cirque Ziva, and others, each for a specific US market. Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts’ presentation of The Golden Dragon Acrobats is made possible, in part, through the generous support of Macy’s.

The School of American Ballet announces 2016 WINTER BALL at the David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 14, 2016 The School of American Ballet (SAB) announces the 2016 Winter Ball at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 14, 2016, sponsored by legendary French jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels for the ninth consecutive year. Cocktails begin at 7pm and dinner will commence at 8pm, followed by The Encore dessert and dancing at 9pm. Attire is black tie. To purchase tickets, a table, or for more information, please contact the Special Events Office at (212) 769-6636. This glamorous annual dinner dance, presented each winter for the past 12 years, is attended by 500 patrons, including the School’s board members and alumni as well as leaders from the New York corporate and social communities. A highlight of the evening includes a one-time-only performance by the students of the School of American Ballet choreographed by Peter Walker, who was selected by Peter Martins, Artistic Director and Chairman of Faculty for SAB, for the second consecutive year. The proceeds from the event enhance every aspect of the School’s extraordinary ballet training program, helping to provide $2 million annually in student scholarships, as well as supporting faculty, maintaining world-class studios and offering vital student programs beyond the classroom. Famed French jeweler, Van Cleef & Arpels, will again act as the lead corporate sponsor for the gala. This long-standing partnership is a tribute to the friendship shared between SAB founder, George Balanchine, and one of the Van Cleef & Arpels founding brothers, Claude Arpels, who brought the famed French jewelry Maison to New York in 1939. Their shared passion for exceptional stones inspired a creative partnership that resulted in Balanchine’s Jewels ballet and its sumptuous costumes. The event is led by Chairmen Joyce Giuffra, Julia Koch, Serena Lese and Young Patron Chairmen Noreen Ahmad and Amanda Brotman. ABOUT SCHOOL OF AMERICAN BALLET The School of American Ballet, the official training academy of the New York City Ballet, was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein as the first and most essential step in their quest to create an American classical ballet company. SAB, located at New York City's Lincoln Center, is the premier ballet academy in the United States, training more students who go on to become professional dancers than any other school. SAB's former students fill the ranks of the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies. ABOUT VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Van Cleef & Arpels was born in Paris’ Place Vendôme in 1906, following Alfred Van Cleef’s marriage to Estelle Arpels in 1895. Always striving for excellence, the Maison has become a worldwide reference through its unique designs, its choice of exceptional stones and its virtuoso craftsmanship, offering jewels and timepieces that tell stories and bring enchantment to life. Over the years, the Maison has remained faithful to this highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, refinement and poetry. Whether inspired by nature, couture or the imagination, its collections evoke a timeless world of harmony and beauty. Peter Walker hails from Fort Myers, Florida, where he began his early dance training at age eight. He attended the School of American Ballet during the 2006 and 2007 Summer Courses and enrolled as a full-time student in the winter of 2007. Peter honed his choreographic skills while still an SAB student by participating in SAB’s annual Student Choreography Workshop; and in 2011, 2012 and 2014, he was selected by Peter Martins to choreograph for SAB’s Summer Course Choreographic Workshop. He was a recipient of SAB’s 2011 Mae L. Wien Award for Outstanding Promise and became an apprentice with New York City Ballet. He joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet in fall 2012. #

And two of the frumpiest, most overdressed stepsisters pout, skulk, and flirt their way through evil antics in the grand en travesti tradition.

Welcome to ScreenDance Festival at Dansmuseet in Stockholm! For the third year in a row, we present a wide range of amazing dance films. Filmmakers from all over the world have already found their way to our festival and send in their contributions from Jordan, Lithuania, the USA, Mexico, Slovakia, Greece etc. The juries are currently going through with the selection process. Filmmakers still have the chance to send in their works until the 1st of January! ScreenDance Festival was created by Cyntia Botello in 2014. By highlighting the genre of dance film, both nationally and internationally, the festival collaborates with filmmakers, dancers and others interested in screen dance from all over the world and has already been honored with the presence of Agite y Sirva from Mexico - France and Michiel Vaanhold from Holland. The project aims to get more people interested in the genre and invites the audience to start producing their own films, while spreading knowledge about dance film's considerable charm and artistic greatness. ScreenDance Festival takes place in the spring and has an open call until the beginning of 2016. The festival's continuing collaboration with Dansmuseet began in spring 2015. And we could not be happier. Located on Drottninggatan, situated in the heart of Stockholm, many dance enthusiasts have had the chance to visit the museum's beautiful exhibitions as well as the festival's screenings. Dansmuseet's beautiful premises will host ScreenDance festival 2016. The program also includes screenings of the 60secondsdance short film competition, an international, Nordic and national dance film contest with contributions of no longer than one minute. Despite their short format, the cutting-edge dance films offer unexpected and exciting choreography, script and interesting photography. Awards will be given out to three winners that will take part in the international as well as the Swedish competition. The first prize is 1200 euro, second prize 500 euro and the audience award winners will be provided with free passports to Loikka Dance Film Festival in Helsinki. In addition to the festival's screenings, there will be school screenings as well as workshops and public talks designed for professional dancers and aspiring filmmakers. This year's prize that will be awarded to a Swedish winner by the juries, is a two weeks artistic residency at Kultivera in Tranas, Smaland. Winners will have the opportunity to continue their creative works and develop and explore further possibilities within the genre of dance film - or find new forms of artistic collaboration. More information regarding the festival's program will be announced in February after the final dance films' selection has been made.

The company continues to foster Graham’s spirit of ingenuity, inspiring new generations of choreographers and dance lovers. Program to include Nacho Duato’s new work, Rust, with an all-male chorus; Lamentation Variations by Kyle Abraham and others; a new work by Marie Chouinard; and Graham's Acts of Light.

Bryn Cohn + Artists makes their “homecoming” with a pioneering evening of dance, theater, original music, scenic design and an exciting intermission exhibition. The company, who has quickly gained recognition for their risk-taking worlds and emotional performances, will present a bold and memorable program with the world premiere of HOME and the long awaited West Coast debut of Skin. Two performances take place on Friday, May 6 + Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 8 p.m. at The Los Angeles Theater Center located in downtown Los Angeles at 514 South Spring Street. For more information please visit https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/cal/28125 or call 866-811-4111. Tickets are $32 and $24 for students and seniors. For information on the company, please visit http://bryncohnandartists.com. HOME draws upon ritualistic and traditional processes to elucidate through interpersonal encounters, environments and the pursuit of self and collective understanding. Scenic design elements, such as commonly seen furniture, are interwoven into kinetic movement languages to portray the loss, challenge and celebration that occur within this family. Through continuously evolving structures that transform the space and the complex relationships developed amongst the performers, we come to understand that our concept of HOME is constantly shifting as we move through life. By examining utopian models of the “picture perfect” family in contrast to human realities, the work provides a lens into a universal concept that we can all access to reimagine and define our own notion of what it means to find home. Skin investigates how we physically and metaphorically “build” a person in a continuous cycle of creation and destruction in response to social castes, gender, sexuality and political systems. Featuring six mannequins, Skin creates an immersive world onstage as the performers cultivate their own identities in juxtaposition to the empty and emotionless physical forms. Acting as voyeurs in the space, the mannequins become part of our understanding of what it means to be human, observing the entire performance but lacking the ability to fully participate. This intimate and risk-taking journey strips us of our fabricated spectacle and leaves us bare, in our own skin, to reveal a sacred truth about ourselves in conflict and harmony with our world. Skin (excerpt): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zMSSo6ddQ8 and Bryn Cohn’s Teaching Highlight Reel: https://vimeo.com/92250261 About the Company Founded in 2011, Bryn Cohn + Artists is a contemporary dance company comprised of diverse collaborative artists. Their mission is to construct artistic worlds of reality, fantasy and abstraction by investigating the edges of physical and imaginative boundaries. BC + A positions itself at the forefront of an honest dialogue about how human beings interact with, connect to, and isolate themselves amidst the complexity of our world. The building of a kinetic movement language, in conjunction with charged relationships fluidly guide the dancers into a compelling exchange of visceral and narrative concepts. Hailed as “groundbreaking, primal, graceful, flowing effortlessly, surreal and supernatural” (Brooklyn Buzz), the company has performed in premiere venues throughout New York, Boston and Seattle including Danspace Project in St. Marks Church in-the-Bowery, Ailey Citigroup Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Dixon Place, The Martha Graham Theater, Judson Memorial Church, The Center for Performance Research, 92nd Street Y, Abrons Arts Center, Baruch Performing Arts Center and in collaboration with the contemporary art galleries Foley Gallery and Castle Fitzjohns. About the Artistic Director Described as a “dancemaker who does not shy away from much” (DIY Dancer), Bryn Cohn graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from California Institute of the Arts in dance performance and composition. Cohn has been commissioned by the Missouri Contemporary Ballet, Billy Bell’s Lunge Dance Collective (formerly of So You Think You Can Dance and Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet), the fashion designer Betsey Johnson, Grand Valley State University, The Pushing Progress Contemporary Training Program, California State University at Fullerton, and The Youth America Grand Prix. As a sought after educator, she is on permanent faculty at Peridance Capezio Center, Greenwich Ballet Academy and for The Pushing Progress Contemporary Training Program, and has participated in master educational engagements at Broadway Dance Center (NYC), Gibney Dance (NYC), Loyola Marymount University (CA) and Velocity Dance Center (Seattle), among others. Cohn, born and raised in Los Angeles, is establishing a bicoastal presence through this premiere and is currently working within different sectors from commercial to education to concert dance.
