With its long-running Once Upon a Ballet Series, New York Theater Ballet consolidates the classics into hour-long productions for the under-10 crowd and puts parents’ minds at ease.” – The New York Times Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker – December 19-21, 2014 New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns for a fourth year of Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker, an enchanting holiday ballet. From clockwork imps to a luminous owl that flies above the audience, mice dressed in polka dots and dancers dancing with huge chopsticks, this timeless, re-imagined classic bursts with energy and excitement. This holiday ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is set in Art Nouveau style circa 1907 with innovative choreography by long-time NYTB choreographer, Keith Michael, and costumes by Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera, Sylvia Nolan. “One of the most kid-friendly around!” – The New York Times Cinderella – February 7-8, 2015 With a Dancing Clock, wacky Stepsisters and everyone’s favorite princess, Cinderella features choreography by Donald Mahler, costumes by Metropolitan Opera’s Resident Costume Designer, Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan and sets by Gillian Bradshaw Smith. Appropriate for girls and boys of all ages. GOOSE! – March 7-8, 2015 The wit, wisdom, and whimsy of a lively baker’s dozen of Mother Goose characters. They literally leap from the page to the stage to stir the imagination of the young and the young-at-heart, just as they have for centuries! Carnival of the Animals – June 6-7, 2015 In a magical forest, Queen Diana and her shaggy lion rule a charming assortment of animals who live more or less peaceably until a pair of lost children wander in, and then the fun begins! Choreography by Beth Storey Taylor. “The most endearing and engaging part of the show happened … during a prelude led by the company’s artistic director, Diana Byer. In an effort to acquaint young audiences with the behind-the-scenes work of putting on a ballet, Ms. Byer invited her animated production manager, Pepper Fajans, to demonstrate the meticulous art of marking the stage to indicate where props and dancers should go. This also served as a basic math lesson, as Mr. Fajans divided the floor into halves and quarters with bits of colored tape. Ms. Byer then ushered out five “dancing examples” (children from New York Theater Ballet’s school) to show how this task helps to organize bodies in a given space. My 8-year-old companion never seemed more enthralled than when other kids her age arrived onstage, dutifully arranging themselves into a diagonal, a triangle, a square. Their simple, swift and spirited performance, more relatable than any fairy tale, was hard to top.” – The New York Times ABOUT NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB), founded in 1978 by artistic director Diana Byer, is the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States and has been hailed by The New York Times as “an invaluable company.” NYTB is dedicated to inspiring a love of dance in diverse audiences through performances of chamber ballet masterpieces and bold new works, as well as innovative one-hour ballets for children, all at affordable prices.

The Women in the Arts and Media Coalition, Inc. will present the 2015 Collaboration Award recognizing Women Working With Women. This is the fifth Collaboration Award presented by the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, whose mission is to focus the power of its member organizations together and to use that combined strength to address issues of concern to women in the arts, media, and new media. The Coalition is committed to being the link between its member organizations as they work together to impact the various topics that affect women in our industry through advocacy, networking, and events. The $1,000 Collaboration Award and additional honorable mentions are designed to encourage professional women in the arts and media from different specializations to work collaboratively on the creation of a new artistic work. As the aim of the award is to encourage women to work collaboratively with women of other disciplines, each collaborative team must be comprised of female members of different Coalition associations, unions, guilds and affiliates of The Coalition. Eligible teams may submit any form of creative collaboration on a new work that had its first public performance within the last two years, 2013-2015. A public performance can include, but is not limited to a staged reading, gallery show, screenings, concert series, etc. Shellen Lubin, co-president of Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, Inc., states "For the Coalition, collaboration is particularly important to acknowledge for two reasons: first, as women are breaking down barriers in all these different disciplines, they have too often been the only woman on the creative team, and we want to honor women who choose to work with other women; second, we have been learning for awhile how women collaborating with other women often work together differently than men do with men, and even more so than men do with women. We want to honor these women's unique, ever-evolving collaborative processes." Submissions will be judged by a Selection Committee made up of accomplished professionals, and will be assessed on the basis of artistic excellence, diversity, and clarity. All topics and subjects will be considered. Special attention shall be given to those projects which reflect the goals of the Coalition: to advance women’s work and women’s issues. The application is online at www.womenartsmediacoalition.org and can be saved and re-worked there until submitted to us. A PDF application may also be accessed there for offline submissions. Deadline: The deadline for the return of completed applications is 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, 2015. Award winners will be announced by September, 2015. The selected team and honorable mentions will be invited to be recognized at an awards ceremony in New York in October 2015. Women outside of New York may send a designee to speak about their project and accept the award. Applicants must be members in good standing of two different organizations and/or affiliates with The Coalition. Those organizations are: Actors’ Equity Association, Dramatists Guild, League of Professional Theatre Women, New York Women in Film & Television, Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, Writers’ Guild of America, East.

Please send all inquiries and questions to: collaborationaward@womenartsmediacoalition.org. Quotes from Past Winners: “We are so honored to be accepting this award. One of the best aspects of making this very unconventional film was working together. We got it done using our creativity, mutual respect for one another, quality Skype-time with our families back home, plain old hard work, and as much good humor as we could muster. It means the world to us to have our film embraced by an organization that celebrates women in collaboration.” -- Jane Edith Wilson and Grace Lee - 2013 Winners “It was an honor for Stefanie and I to receive the Collaboration Award. It came at a critical moment for the DEVELOPMENT of Electric Baby as the award supported our work together on two DEVELOPMENTAL workshops and our world premiere production of the play at Quantum Theatre in Pittsburgh. Not only did this award support our work financially it gave our collaboration recognition in the field. Stefanie continues to be a key collaborator of mine on subsequent projects and having our relationship recognized publicly is invaluable.” -- Daniella Topol, Director - 2011 Winner "New work needs momentum. It’s simply not a reality that a play can be written in the attic and then magically find a production. Or that one production will lead to a second or third production. People need to hear about work. They need to hear about the artists who make the work. There is no question that this award not only helped The Electric Baby become a better play, but it gave the baby a life.” -- Stefanie Zadravec, Playwright - 2011 Winner “The Collaboration Award’s encouragement of women working together is terrific. It made all the difference in providing my collaborator and I with the time and support we needed to create a complex and dynamic theatre work.” -- Kristin Marting, Director - 2008 Winner “The evening of the Collaboration Awards was imbued with theatrical magic. Wendy directed an excerpt from my play, Birds, that captured the spirit of the play with great response from a wildly supportive audience. Birds is the third play of mine that we worked on together. It was a beautiful jumping off point for us in our process. It provided the opportunity for us to mine even deeper in our exploration of the world of this complicated play, and the support, enthusiasm and appreciation of this body of amazing women helped carry us through to the next step of our artistic journey.” -- Jen Maisel, Playwright - 2006 Winner About Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, Inc.

Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance organization since 1970, returns to the Joyce Theater from April 14-26, 2015 with 15 performances featuring five dynamic programs. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now at www.joyce.org. Under Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, Ballet Hispanico has melded its Latino roots with an eclectic, sleekly modern style that has made it one “of the best contemporary repertory ensembles” (The New York Times). Highlights of this year’s Joyce season include a raw and athletic world premiere by Mexico-based choreographer Miguel Mancillas and the dazzling New York premiere of Show.Girl. by Miami-based, Princess Grace Award-winning choreographer Rosie Herrera. Other highlights include the Joyce Premiere of Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia, a contemporary spin on the iconic story about a passionate gypsy with set design by Luis Crespo and costumes by fashion designer David Delfin; Sombrerísimo, choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and commissioned by New York City Center for the 10th anniversary of the Fall for Dance Festival; and El Beso, choreographed by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano, with original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez. For the first time during its New York Season, Ballet Hispanico will also offer a 90-minute matinee on Saturday, April 18 that is specially curated for children and families featuring excerpts from Ballet Hispanico’s diverse repertory and a Q&A with the dancers. Hosted by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro and Education Director AnaMaria Correa, Ballet Hispanico’s fun, interactive and educational Performances for Young People—now celebrating 30 years—give families a glimpse into the beauty of the arts and Latino culture. “Our New York Season truly offers something for everyone,” said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director of Ballet Hispanico. “The works this season highlight the full breadth of the company's powerful ability to interpret the many shades of the Latino cultural experience. From raw human expression to stylized theatrical seduction, each work is a chapter in the past, present and future of our American experience. And, I am particularly excited to offer our beloved and signature Performances for Young People to family audiences through a special Saturday matinee.” Ballet Hispanico’s New York Season at The Joyce Theater – April 14-26, 2015 Conquer (2015) – World Premiere Choreography by Miguel Mancillas A raw and athletic world premiere by Mexico-based choreographer Miguel Mancillas that explores, through notions of power and possession, the ways in which we seek to conquer spaces and people. Mr. Mancillas’s work came to fruition through Ballet Hispanico’s Instituto Coreográfico, an innovative choreography lab program for Latino dance makers. Show.Girl. (2014) – New York Premiere Choreography by Rosie Herrera A dazzling New York premiere by Miami-based, award-winning choreographer Rosie Herrera, Show.Girl. uses the Cuban cabaret aesthetic to explore the Latina female identity. Ms. Herrera’s work was commissioned in part by American Dance Festival and came to fruition through Ballet Hispanico’s Instituto Coreográfico, an innovative choreography lab program for Latino dance makers. CARMEN.maquia (2014) – Joyce Premiere Choreography by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, CARMEN.maquia is a Picasso-inspired contemporary take on Bizet’s beloved classic. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. 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. Sombrerísimo (2013) Choreography by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa An absorbing exploration of identity, Sombrerísimo references 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 (2014) Choreography by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano Spaniard Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s first work for Ballet Hispanico is a spirited look at the nuances of a kiss set to Spanish Zarzuela music and featuring original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez. Asuka (2011) Choreography by Eduardo Vilaro Asuka is a celebration of the music of Celia Cruz through the lens of the Latino experience.

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 JOYCE THEATER FOUNDATION, INC., a non-profit organization, has proudly served the dance community and its audiences since 1982. The founders, Cora Cahan and Eliot Feld, acquired and renovated the Elgin Theater in Chelsea, which opened as The Joyce Theater in 1982. The Joyce is named in honor of Joyce Mertz, beloved daughter of LuEsther T. Mertz. It was LuEsther’s clear, undaunted vision and abundant generosity that made it imaginable and ultimately possible to establish the theater. One of the only theaters built by dancers for dance, The Joyce Theater has provided an intimate and elegant New York home for more than 290 domestic and international companies. The Joyce has also commissioned more than 130 new dances since 1992. In 1996, The Joyce created Joyce SoHo, a dance center providing highly subsidized rehearsal and performance space to hundreds of dance artists. New York City public school students and teachers annually benefit from The Joyce’s Dance Education Program, and adult audiences get closer to dance through pre-engagement Dance Talks and post-performance Humanities discussions. The Joyce Theater now features an annual season of approximately 48 weeks with over 340 performances for audiences in excess of 135,000. Ballet Hispanico’s 2015 New York season is made possible by Jody and John Arnhold, Goya Foods, The Harkness Foundation for Dance, Bloomberg Philanthropies, The Fan Fox & Leslie R.

We will be inviting guest DJ's on rotation to join our 2 resident DJ's 4. We will be changing the music policy slightly because as it turns out we feel classic Kizombas and Zouks and Sembas should be part of every night but we will stick to only playing Ghetto Zouk & Tarraxinha from the last year or two if they are specially nice songs no older. The policy will be new songs first and older songs later. So expect the classics to end the night ;) The concept behind "Fresca" is that we will be only playing newest songs the latest Kizomba and Semba and Ghetto Zouk, Tarraxinha as well as a touch of Afrohouse, Afro Beat and and urban styles depending on the mood. This concept means our DJ's will be challenged to the maximum to work hard and dig out songs you never got exposed to and haven't heard 500 times in the last 5 years so you can always expect to hear songs you haven't heard to much everywhere else.

Known for making theatrical dances that are at once humorous and profound, Rogers’ newest evening of dance, all wound up and other works, includes four pieces ranging from a searing depiction of a deteriorating relationship to a spirited romp in football gear. 3 episodes big birds can’t do draws on portrait postures, physical descriptions, and favorite songs, as it envisions a kinetic conversation between David Hockey and Tennessee Williams. The quartet rough draft, inspired by the recent outings in professional American football, imagines a new arena for masculine relationships. Of the four pieces on the bill, two are world premieres. all wound up, a duet for Rogers and collaborator Tristan Koepke, considers the experience of the passage of time in fits and starts. The other premiere on the program is by guest artist Kendra Portier. With a particular blend of dance and theatre that merges virtuosity of the body into real world scenarios - romantic breakups, office settings, and domestic bliss - Red Dirt Dance showcases the dancing body as an invitation to imagine the possibilities of human interaction; the dances are interdisciplinary storytelling at its best.

WHAT is Soul de Soul? Soul de Soul (SDS) is a dance convention for dancers at any level of experience from ages 5 - 50. SDS offers classes in a variety of styles for "mini" dancers through teachers and everyone in between! Co-founded and directed by best friends, Hilary McAlister and Mackenzie Crosley, this convention is meant to be a way of sharing their passion for dance with other young artists. SDS reaches to empower dancers of all ages by creating a community where they can dance, risk and excel in a safe environment with some of the best teachers and choreographers in the industry. SDS offers class in several styles but believes the improv class is the true heart of Soul de Soul as it imparts a new understanding and true love of movement. WHY we created SDS: Soul de Soul was created out of our shared concern of the closed off community that we felt in our city due to the lack of opportunity to take from other local teachers outside of home studios and the desire to bridge the gap between studios and dancers who were training down the street from each other 3 times a week. Our efforts were to create a safe place free from those boundaries and to offer a safe place where dancers, students, teachers and anyone with the shared affinity for dance could come create and experience others' talents. This is the founding integrity of our company.

Announcing Arts for Art's April Evolving Series, presenting FreeJazz and Dance Improvisation. These 2 important streams in innovation and Improvisation each grew up in the Lower East Side in the 70’s and 80’s but only randomly interacted. Yoshiko Chuma & the School of Hard Knocks in collaboration with Patricia Nicholson Parker & Arts for Art, are bringing these improvisational streams together so that we can all see what might happen next. Arts for Art has successfully brought Free Jazz aka avantJazz to the attention of a world wide audience. Now it is time that these two improvising trends met and share with each other. We already know that the music, poetry and dance are without compromise. Now they will share the same space on an equal footing.

Ballet Hispanico raised more than $1.1 million in support of the company’s artistic and educational work in New York City and around the country at their 2015 Gala on Monday, March 30, 2015. During the evening, Ballet Hispanico honored Ballet Hispanico Board President and President and COO of Palladium Equity Partners David Pérez and Milena Alberti-Pérez, SVP and Head of Global Corporate Finance at Penguin Random House, with the Civic Inspiration Award. Ben Rodriguez-Cubeñas, Chair of Ballet Hispanico’s Leadership Council and program director for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, was honored with the Nuestra Inspiración Award. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the creation of new Company works, need-based financial aid and merit scholarships in the Ballet Hispanico School of Dance, and community arts education programs. This year’s Gala, themed “Noche Cubana” and attended by 470 guests, featured live salsa music by Grupo Irék along with performances by the Ballet Hispanico Company and students of the Ballet Hispanico School of Dance and P.S. 87M. Attendees included Event Chairs Jody & John Arnhold, Kate Lear & Jon LaPook, Marcos A. Rodriguez, and Greidys Gil & Luis Zaldivar; Event Vice Chairs Herb Scannell and Charles Wortman & Laura Baldwin; and Milena Alberti-Pérez, Julia Arnhold, Paul Arnhold, Tony Bechara, Lorea Canales, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, Vin Cipolla, Ben Rodriguez-Cubeñas, Diana DiMenna, Anita Durst, Joan Finkelstein, Wes Gordon, Lane Harwell, Jacqueline Hernández, Cynthia López, Jim McCoy, Sharon Luckman, Scott Pelley, David Pérez, Jessica Rodriguez, Ann and Richard Sarnoff, Mikki Sheppard, Linda Celeste Sims, Marta Tellado, David Ushery, Jorge Daniel Veneziano, Eduardo Vilaro. Guests in attendance received the exclusive announcement that Ballet Hispanico is naming its Education & Outreach branch Puentes. “At the very beginning, Ballet Hispanico’s education program was a pathway connecting Latinos to the community at large,” said Eduardo Vilaro, artistic director of Ballet Hispanico. “Today, it builds bridges between many diverse cultures through innovative workshops, master classes and custom-designed arts-in-education learning opportunities, all taught through the lens of history, music and dance.” Puentes inspires students in classrooms, on stages and in the community – ultimately connecting everyone to the past, present and future of Latino cultures – and celebrates artistry, engagement and personal growth. • Last year, Puentes programs provided culturally relevant dance educational experiences for over 8,000 students, families and communities in New York City and nationwide. • Students in kindergarten through 12th grade, college, parents and seniors are reached through the Puentes program. • 78% of New York City public school students served by Ballet Hispanico’s Puentes programs were of African, Latino, or Asian descent, and 70% of these students qualified for free or reduced-price lunches. • Each year Ballet Hispanico offers more than $150,000 in need-based scholarships to students, some coming directly from the Puentes programs. ABOUT BALLET HISPANICO Since its inception in 1970, Ballet Hispanico has been recognized as the nation’s premier Latino dance organization. Led by award-winning Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the Ballet Hispanico Company has performed for audiences totaling over 3 million, throughout 11 countries, and on 3 continents. The Company’s commitment to contemporary repertory has produced world-class, multifaceted performances that have featured master works by Nacho Duato, cutting-edge premieres by Cayetano Soto and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and live music collaborations with renowned artists such as Paquito D’Rivera and Ruben Blades—to name a notable few. Through the work of its professional company, school of dance, and community arts education programs, Ballet Hispanico celebrates the dynamic aesthetics of the Hispanic diaspora, building new avenues of cultural dialogue and sharing the joy of dance with all communities.

Peter Carpenter and Margi Cole join forces to co-choreograph a dance that considers the importance of mimicry and imitation. How do imitations of others shape our sense of self? How can imperfect copies shed light on the excesses of the original? Can mimicry terrorize the status quo? Carpenter and Cole scheme to address these questions in a promenade-style dance-theatre hybrid that asks audience members to leave the comfort of their seats and traverse the onstage, backstage and lobby areas of the DCASE Storefront Theater. The performance showcases high-velocity dancing, irreverent theatricality and unorthodox compositional devices.

Movement continues their fascination with the cyclical nature of relationships and living. The work offers the observer the freedom to receive, relate or simply notice what is happening; just as one does in everyday living. “While we continue along our individual courses of existence, it is commonplace to become ignorant of what is all around. Whether it is conscious or unconscious we inevitably coincide. This affects what is, and what is to come.” raja feather kelly | the feath3r theory premieres the 5th work in JAMES MEETS ANNE | A TRILOGY IN 5 PARTS. The title personas of ANNE and JAMES are loosely drawn portraits of poet Anne Sexton and actor James Dean. The cycle distills emotion and realizes, through movement, a poetic sensibility related to who we deal with love, tragedy, and hope. The cycle contains 5 works in 3 chapters developed and presented in 2013 and 2014 at The University Of Florida, Joe’s Pub, Gowanus Arts Project, Dixon Place Dance, WaxWorks, and Roulette Brooklyn.

All Dancing! All Singing! is the first Lyrics & Lyricists™ dance revue, celebrating Irving Berlin’s contributions to Hollywood musicals. Artistic director/choreographer Randy Skinner directs a cast of hand-picked young vocalists/dancers – Darien Crago, Danny Gardner, Drew Humphrey, Kristie Kerwin, Con O’Shea-Creal and Kristen Beth Williams – who are joined by veterans Sandy Duncan and Don Correia as special guests. Performances are May 2, 3 and 4. “Irving Berlin had a profound effect on how movie musicals were made, with his rhythmic, danceable songs created especially for film,” notes Randy Skinner. “The groundbreaking work he did with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers led to some of the most famous dance numbers in film history—like ‘Cheek To Cheek’ and ‘Let’s Face the Music and Dance’— by marrying song and dance in a brand new way.” The show focuses on the songs by Berlin that premiered in movies and follows his journey through the studios he worked for, such as RKO, Paramount and MGM. The dance numbers feature tap, ballroom, jazz and a couple of the dance crazes Berlin’s music started.

I don't know who Harold is, but I'm pretty sure I hate him. Florida, 1985. Chris isn't eating his broccoli. There's a knock at the door. Grams says it's a little boy named Harold who lives upstairs. He has come to eat our dinner. We clean the plates just in time, but he returns again and again. Harold, I hate you. is an exploration of the many incarnations "the boy from upstairs” took on in cakeface director Amanda Szeglowski’s rabid imagination. This new work is an investigation of omnipresent insecurities, that are, perhaps, imaginary.

“shadowy, softly ephemeral, full of surprises. It also sparkles with a gentle wit” --Rita Felciano, 2014, Dance View Dissolver is Funsch Dance Experience’s new full-length work structured as a series of duets and trios that become subsumed into a group work for seven dancers. Wistful yet sensual, with a hint of humor lurking at its edge, Dissolver seamlessly blends everyday gesture and more abstracted movement in support of its mood. Though partitioned into duets and trios, Dissolver uses the group to fluidly represent one authorial point of view.

Intrinsick will be the first live psychological thriller dance work performed by OdDancity, based in Los Angeles, California. Intrinsick is built on using human’s greatest addictions and the process of what might happen if these dependencies were taken away. It has resemblances to solitary confinement reactions, but what you will discover most is that with your numbness prohibited, your real self emerges. Restraint or lack thereof. Inner whispers. Guilt. Abandon. Helplessness. Judgement. Manipulation. Deception. Intrinsick will leave you out of breath and searching…for…

Cats Paying Dues (CPD) and founding artistic director, Andrew Nemr, will celebrate their 10th Anniversary Season with the world premiere of “Three Suites” at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center (199 Chambers Street) for six performances only from May 13-17, 2015. “Three Suites” is a celebration of CPD’s history and a vision of the future featuring three suites of new work, each highlighting a unique interpretation of tap dance. The first suite, “Ever for Love” combines popular songs with tap dance to tell a story of the pursuit of love, reminiscent of CPD’s debut show “All For Love”. The second suite “Remembrances”, primarily an cappella work, combines rhythms from around the world with live vocals performed by the dancers themselves, and explores the universal nature of percussive dance alongside stories of love, longing, and strife. The final suite, "Entering the Waters", a special collaboration with hammered dulcimer virtuoso and composer Max ZT, and his band, House of Waters, charts a path for the future of the company both aesthetically and as a forum for collaboration. The six performances will benefit Cedar Home for Girls, an orphanage in Nabay, Lebanon, that serves orphaned and at risk girls, and is currently challenged with an increased need due to the extreme circumstances in the region. This is of personal significance as artistic director, Andrew Nemr, is the son of Lebanese immigrants. In addition to performing with the company, Nemr will offer his unique brand of tap dance story telling as interludes between each suite. “In a world that has much pain and suffering, Tap dance can be used to bring us together, to share universal stories, and to better the lives of those who are in need the most.” said Andrew J. Nemr. “As we celebrate a milestone, it’s important to remember the responsibility we have as artists and use its power for good.” Andrew J. Nemr and Cats Paying Dues 10th Anniversary Season and World Premiere of “Three Suites” runs Wednesday – Sunday, May 13-17, 2015. Schedule is as follows: 5/13-5/15 at 8pm, 5/16 at 2pm and 8pm, and 5/17 at 2pm. An Artist Talk-Back will follow the May 16th, 2pm, performance. A VIP Reception hosted by Byblos Restaurant will follow the May 13th performance.

This year, after 20 years of shows and over 300 original works of choreography, Loco-Motion will present a retrospective performance reworking some favorite dances from the past. These will include a humorous dance about puberty using health class film audio from the 1950's; a piece about colors set to the jazz word music of Ken Nordine that is infused with parables on racism and human behavior; and a dance utilizing Maya Angelou’s poem A Brave and Startling Truth. New works feature in depth exploration on racial profiling in America and a class of Middle School children will bravely tackle issues that stem from their viewpoints on “high stakes testing” and labeling within the educational system. In addition to participating in Loco-Motion's curriculum of modern dance, dance composition, ballet and improvisation techniques, 95 students from seven different dance classes have spent the last nine months in extensive choreography workshops. Young artists who are relatively new to the choreographic process will have the opportunity to showcase their work along side of Loco-Motion's older and more experienced choreographers. Their combined training and performance backgrounds have coalesced and transformed this dedicated group of children into a formidable ensemble. It will prove to be an entertaining and thought-provoking experience for audiences of all ages.

The original turned into a cult classic, so they remade it. The remake was crap, so they made it into a Broadway musical, which was described as a “flavorless marshmallow”. Obviously, what IS needed is a one-man clown version to lay the whole thing to rest. Into this void steps Carlton Cyrus Ward! No matter the stakes, he will turn Bomont into a footloose town once and for all. "But, hands down, Mr. Ward, ...playing an awkward daredevil, steals the show." – Catherine Rampell, New York Times, 2012 Laurel Snyder creates movement-based performance that celebrates the fluidity of self, the stability of mobility, and the complexity of human emotion. She relies heavily on improvisation for creation and is interested in simultaneously embracing and challenging the natural impulse. Snyder is presenting two works: GRUFF, an ongoing solo exploration of full-bodied transformation, and the premiere of a new group work, we all fall down, inspired by the beauty and science of building demolitions. "Powerful, spiral-y and lyrical, she filled The Tank with energy unlike any other performer in the evening and provided a much-needed breath of fresh air.” - Jeremy Finch, Culturebot More Info: www.triskelionarts.org

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance presents The Mantises Are Flipping W.3 as part of the DANCE: Access series* at Danspace Project from May 21-23, 2015 at 8pm at St. Marks Church, 131 E. 10th Street, NYC. Tickets are $20 ($15 for Dancespace members) and can be purchased on dancespaceproject.org, by calling the Dancespace Project box office at 866.811.4111, or by visiting the box office in person. For more information, please visit http://bodystoriesfellion.org. Derived from Teresa Fellion’s original solo work, Mantises utilizes contrasting movement qualities, while creating polyrhythmic movement where the upper and lower body performs separate dynamics and rhythms. With Fellion’s direction, the company dancers are investigating themes including: the nature of opposites, “sanity versus insanity”, the effects of sound on the body both internally and externally, and the changing psychological states of several individuals in a thread of isolation. These have informed their ever-changing imaginative development process to cultivate new discoveries. “The Mantises Are Flipping W.3 is a long-term contemporary dance project which has evolved during three separate, detailed stages of fresh development, exploring duality that creates a voyeuristic point of observation into idiosyncratic worlds and relationships among individuals,” said Teresa Fellion, Artistic Director of BodyStores: Teresa Fellion Dance. “World One premiered at ICA Boston and CPR-Center for Performance Research in 2013, exposing our sound and movement vocabularies, created to contain opposing qualities simultaneously. World Two premiered at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center and Bryant Park Summerstage in 2014, offering layers of cohesion to four distinct, rich environments. Through further movement and sound development, as well as extended spatial and interactive design research, in May 2015 we will premiere a new work, Mantis W.3, which will give the audience an immersive experience in the imaginative, playful, yet ‘unfortunately adult’ world of Mantises Are Flipping.” Mantises will feature dancers Iman Barnes, Zach Bergfelt, Corey Bliss, Mia DeWeese, Alex Jenkins, Monica Mordaunt, and Audrey Rachelle Stanley; with costumes by Ljupka Arsovska; lighting design by Tim Cryan; and live music and original composition by Ryan Edwards and John Yannelli. “Bodystories: Teresa Fellion Dance have stepped bravely up to the mirror and refused to shy away from our most unpleasant characteristics, while unfailingly celebrating the potential for beauty within each of us. Through repeated movements, loving touches and some of the angriest dance I have ever seen women undertake on the stage, this group has created true magic.” - Edinburgh Festivals Magazine *DANCE: Access is a self-produced series administered by Danspace Project that serves independent choreographers and dance companies. BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance is a contemporary dance company that strives to capture and communicate universal human encounters through dynamic, purposeful movement. We are a multifaceted, highly physical company laced with provocative, emotional, political and humorous edges. Our mission is to examine depths of society in their darkest and brightest moments and to inspire audiences to physically sense emotional and psychological aspects of the human condition on stage. Live music is an important factor in many of our works. We also consistently work via in-depth collaborations in lighting, costume, video and set design. In addition to creating and performing innovative works, our company is committed to reaching diverse populations through outreach and education and maintaining a stable business model to sustain our work. Our company values international exchange; we collectively speak nine languages and research, perform, and collaborate with artists from five continents.

Sky Candy, Austin’s premiere aerial and circus arts theatre company and studio, is proud to announce the world premiere of Swings Asunder, directed by world-travelled dancer Nathan rumbaugh. This avant garde aerial dance exploration of gender identity and self-worth will run June 20th - July 3rd, 2015 at the Rollins Theater at the Long Center. Swings Asunder will examine gender duality versus fluidity, and how we struggle to fit the molds of masculinity and femininity through life’s rites of passage. A man cracks raw eggs and drinks them whole... Four women are contained by a metal cube, shifting within its bounds as it lifts into the air... Two men posture like peacocks as a herd of turtle-women drift nearby... Swings Asunder will draw from the lyricism of modern dance movement as well as the stylized, precise movements of gesture to create a world where gender roles shift fluidly within the same body and blow up to extreme proportions, identities develop, die, and are reborn anew, and perspectives shift through the courage of self exploration. The cast of Swings Asunder includes Sky Candy performers Chelsea Laumen, Caroline Poe, Jamie Roberts, and Cory Allen, and guest artists Hailley Laurèn, Taryn Lavery, Amy Myers, and Leila Noone. The design team includes Composer Justin Sherburn, Set Designer Ia Ensterä, Lighting Designer Patrick Anthony, and Costume and Makeup Design by Wendy Sanders of Blood and Glitter Makeup. This production has been generously funded by The Creative Fund's Q Rental Subsidy Grant program. The Creative Fund is a funding mechanism that provides much needed support to local performing artists enabling them to further their creative endeavors. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.

Returning for its second season in Washington DC, Chamber Dance Project will feature world premieres and favorite works at the gorgeous Lansburgh Theatre (450 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20004), all integrated with live music by CDP’s own string quartet. Celebrated choreographer Diane Coburn Bruning founded the organization in 2000 in New York City and moved to D.C. in 2014. She has gathered together an impressive roster of solo dancers from the Joffrey, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Washington ballets to perform contemporary pieces by four choreographers. Highlights of the program include the world premieres of Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Wild Swans and Diane Coburn Bruning’s Arranged, D.C. premieres of Ann Carlson’s satirical Four Men In Suits and Bruning’s sensuous Journey, encore performances of Bruning’s powerful pieces Exit Wounds and Time Has Come, and Jorge Amarante’s tango-flavored crowd-pleased, Sur. Each performance will also feature a segment of CDP’s enormously popular “structured improv,” where the dancers will create a piece from audience suggestions, offering a unique vantage point on the intersection between concept and creation, breaking down the fourth-wall between audience and artist.

OPERA SARATOGA Announces its 2015 Summer Festival Season La Cenerentola (Cinderella) Music by Gioachino Rossini, Libretto by Jacopo Ferretti Based on the Fairy Tale by Charles Perrault Directed by Lawrence Edelson, Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow Featuring Sandra Piques Eddy, Andrew Owens, John Brancy, David Kravitz, and Ryan Kuster July 2 – 26, 2015 Dido and Aeneas Music by Henry Purcell, Libretto by Nahum Tate Directed and Choreographed by Karole Armitage, Conducted by Nicole Paiement Featuring Jennifer Johnson Cano and ArmitageGone! Dance Company Presented in Partnership with the National Museum of Dance July 6 – 21, 2015 The World Premiere of The Long Walk Composed by Jeremy Howard Beck with libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann Directed by David Schweizer, Conducted by Steven Osgood Featuring Daniel Belcher, Heather Johnson, Caroline Worra, David Blalock, Javier Abreu, Justin Hopkins, and Donita Volkwijn July 10 – 25, 2015 Opera Saratoga announces its 2015 Summer Festival season, which will run from July 2 – July 26, 2015 at multiple venues throughout
Saratoga Springs, New York. The 2014/2015 season is the first programmatic year under the artistic and general direction of Lawrence Edelson and marks an expansion for the company in several ways: the first World Premiere presented by the company in nearly 30 years, three operas instead of two, and a longer festival season including performances at multiple venues in the region. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Opera Saratoga into its next chapter, and thrilled that my first season will provide opportunities for audiences to see three operas that show the breadth and depth of what is happening in opera today, with some of the foremost artists of our generation,” said Lawrence Edelson. “The season includes three operas that couldn’t be more different. La Cenerentola (Cinderella) is a bubbling comedy by Rossini that features virtuoso singing to impress the most passionate opera lovers, and is also an ideal introduction to opera for family audiences. Our presentation of Dido and Aeneas will be our first site-specific production, presented in partnership with the National Museum of Dance. Operas that prominently feature dance will be a part of our programming every season moving forward, and this particular production not only builds upon the region’s connection to dance, but also takes advantage of the stunning natural beauty of Spa State Park, where we are located. The world-premiere of The Long Walk marks a reaffirmed commitment to the inclusion of contemporary American opera as a regular part of our programming. The Company has produced 33 works by American composers in its history, 5 of which have been world premieres, but The Long Walk, by two of the most exciting writers in American opera today - composer Jeremy Howard Beck, and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann - will actually be the first world-premiere for the company in 27 years! This year, we are initiating new partnerships with a wide variety of cultural organizations throughout the region, enabling us to offer exciting new performance programs that compliment the season’s operas, which provide even more ways for audiences to connect with the company and our wonderful artists. By expanding the festival, and moving it into July, we are providing more opportunities not only for local audiences to enjoy our programs, but opportunities for audiences from around the country to enjoy the cultural riches that Saratoga Springs has to offer. With a train station in the heart of the city, and Albany airport less than 30 minutes away, we look forward to welcoming opera lovers from around the country to enjoy not only Opera Saratoga, but all of the restaurants, shops, cultural attractions, historic sites, and natural beauty that Saratoga Springs has to offer.” In tandem with the expansion of the season, the Young Artist Program – the second oldest program of its kind in the country – is being expanded to provide greater professional development opportunities for emerging professionals. The program will consist of three tiers for singers, as well as opportunities for pianists, conductors and directors, under the direction of Laurie Rogers. Opera Saratoga has selected 28 gifted artists from over 1,000 applicants from across the country, who will be in residence in Saratoga Springs this summer. A complete list of Young Artists may be found at http://www.operasaratoga.org/2015-young-artists/ OPERA SARATOGA’S 2015 SUMMER FESTIVAL PROGRAMMING LA CENERENTOLA (Cinderella) Music by Gioachino Rossini, Libretto by Jacopo Ferretti, Based on the Fairy Tale by Charles Perrault Directed by Lawrence Edelson, Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow Featuring Sandra Piques Eddy, Andrew Owens, John Brancy, David Kravitz, and Ryan Kuster Performances: Thursday, July 2, 2015 at 7:30pm; Saturday, July 11, Tuesday, July 14, and Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 2pm; Sunday, July 26, 2015 at 7:30pm Opera Saratoga opens the 2015 Summer Season with Rossini’s beloved version of Cinderella. Based on Perrault’s timeless fairytale, La Cenerentola features plenty of magical enchantment; the ridiculous, over-the-top situations and toe-tapping melodies that you expect from the master of comic Italian opera; and heartfelt emotion to bring together this story of forgiveness and true love. The ultimate rags to riches tale; it's a Cinderella story...but not quite as you may know it! Opera Saratoga is proud to present the company debuts of five extraordinary singers in La Cenerentola: Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy sings the virtuoso title role along side tenor Andrew Owens as Prince Ramiro, baritone John Brancy as his valet Dandini, David Kravitz as her wicked step-father Don Magnifico, and Ryan Kuster as the mysterious philosopher Alidoro. Gary Thor Wedow also makes his company debut conducting this new production by Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson.

Performances: Monday, July 6, 2015; Sunday, July 12, 2015; Sunday, July 19, 2015; Tuesday, July 21, 2015 Opera Saratoga is thrilled to present the first Baroque opera in the company’s history in a truly unique production under the stars! One of the earliest English operas, Dido and Aeneas is one of Purcell's foremost theatrical works. This heartbreaking opera recounts the love of Dido, Queen of Carthage, for the Trojan hero, Aeneas, and her despair when he abandons her. The combination of exquisite vocal music and extensive use of dance has inspired many interpretations of the great score. Opera Saratoga has invited world-renown choreographer and director Karole Armitage to create a very special site-specific production for Saratoga Springs that embraces the natural beauty and history of The National Museum of Dance located in Spa State Park. The production will feature Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano in her company debut Jennifer Johnson Cano as Dido, along with the exquisite dancers of the ArmitageGone!

His performance as Escamillo in their production of Carmen was called “pure bravado.” The Classical Voice said of his performance as Masetto in Don Giovanni, “Handsome Ryan Kuster sang beautifully, and acted so convincingly that it was hard to believe he’s an Adler Fellow.” This season’s appearances include: a concert of his signature repertoire with North State Symphony, the title role in Don Giovanni at Opera Memphis, Escamillo in Carmen at Opera Grand Rapids and Knoxville Opera, Angelotti in Tosca with Orlando Philharmonic, Alidoro in La Cenerentola at Opera Saratoga, and makes a triumphant return to Dallas Opera in late 2015.
