The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago presents the Chicago debut of Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company BalletX as the opening performance series of its 2014–15 season. Co-directed by Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan, the 10-member company performs two works by Joshua L. Peugh: Slump, a wild, aggressive dance about courtship and the instinctual rituals of mating, featuring some Korean dance steps and set to Klezmer, jazz and mambo music, and Valentine’s Day, a pas de deux commissioned by BalletX that deals with the ideas of giving and receiving, romance and obligation, support and struggle, inspired by the simplicity and purity of Japanese animation. Jodie Gates’ Delicate Balance, lauded by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “a dreamscape of motion,” is a physically and emotionally powerful piece that highlights the athleticism and artistry of the BalletX dancers, set to Arvo Pärt, Henryk Gorecki, Gavin Byers, David Lang and Max Richter. Named a “Dance Favorite for 2013” by the New York Times, Neenan’s The Last Glass is a ballet that slowly awakens like a city, part mysterious pageant and part raucous celebration, featuring the wild street-parade sound of American indie-rock band Beirut.

Ballet Academy East is proud to announce the addition of a dance class called Dance for PD® for people with Parkinson’s this fall on Fridays from 11:00-12:15pm at Ballet Academy East, 1651 Third Avenue, NYC. Dance for PD classes, developed collaboratively by Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group, are currently offered at Mark Morris Dance Center, The Juilliard School, and at several locations in The Bronx and Queens. The class at Ballet Academy East represents the program’s first East Side location and provides access for an area of Manhattan previously underserved by this kind of resource. “Ballet Academy East is honored to collaborate with Dance for PD in bringing the joy and physical benefits of dance to people with Parkinson’s disease. Our goal is for every participant to leave class feeling uplifted and inspired by their abilities,” said Julia Dubno, founder and director of Ballet Academy East. Dance for PD, which originated at the Mark Morris Dance Center in 2001, offers specialized dance classes accompanied by live music for people with Parkinson's, their caregivers, family members and friends. Professional teaching artists integrate movement from modern, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing, and choreographic repertory to engage participants’ minds and bodies and create an enjoyable, social environment for artistic exploration. Because Dance for PD focuses on the aesthetic movement of dance rather than acting as therapy, participants in class they are encouraged to approach movement like dancers rather than as patients. Dance for PD classes provide a social environment for participants to interact with other community members, and to share a positive, stimulating activity together with their partners. Participants report that the classes boost their confidence levels, transform their attitudes about living with a chronic illness, and help them manage some of the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Consistent interaction within the close-knit community of the dance class helps to combat social isolation and depression while empowering participants with a sense of physical possibility and artistic achievement. In Dance for PD classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. The program is built on one fundamental premise: professionally trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge is useful to persons with PD. This acclaimed program is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required. Participants will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing, and Mark Morris company repertory in a non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers. Classes modeled after Dance for PD now occur in more than 100 communities in the US, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Holland, Italy, India, Israel, Mexico, and the UK. For more information about the program, please visit www.danceforpd.org. There is no charge for the Dance for PD classes. Advance registration required through the Dance for PD website (www.danceforpd.org) or by calling 718-218-3373. About Ballet Academy East Ballet Academy East, established in 1979 by director, Julia Dubno is made up of four divisions. The Pre-Professional Division for ages 7-19, led by artistic director, Darla Hoover, trains dancers for professional careers in ballet. An audition is required for admission to the Pre-Professional Division. The Enrichment Program is open to students ages 7 and older who wish to study ballet recreationally. The well-known Young Dancers Division offers creative movement, pre-ballet, tap, and modern to ages 18 months to 6 years. BAE’s Open Class Program offers adults of all levels classes in ballet, tap, Pilates, Zumba, and yoga. The Dance for PD class will be part of the Open Class Program.

An explosive mash-up of music, dance, technology and silent film that offers a fresh take on this timeless tale. Original songs and powerful live performances blend with the 1925 silent film to create a show-stopping-spectacle that brings the Lon Chaney classic to three-dimensional, high-decibel life. Singers, dancers and musicians give voice to the silent film projected behind them, playing off each other, the audience and the onscreen story to create a magical exchange. Latin and French for "Voices of Light,” Vox Lumiere is equal parts rock concert, opera, musical theater and multimedia spectacle, all working together to tell a story with projected silent movies. Each evening begins with a red carpet entry for the patrons, photo ops with the cast, refreshments and pre-show entertainment in the lobby. Once inside, patrons experience a live band, surround projection screens, hi-definition sound and a light show. The singers and dancers are lavishly costumed in steampunk-inspired attire.

A workshop with choreographer/dancer Peggy Choy that explores notions of breath as a potent focus of the mind, and “writing” with the body. Choy is interested in a process of interrogating current dance notions of hybridity and fusion. Having grown up in Hawai‘i, where colonial occupation bumps up against cultural diversity from a plantation past, dance is her tool to re-position Asian movement and martial arts in a global landscape, and to question what it means to be a Korean American woman creating in a conflictive and unstable world.

We will be posting updated information in the next two weeks. Please contact us or visit the website for confirmation on location.) The Split Bill program is designed to support emerging dance artists looking for a stepping-stone between the showcase format and full, evening-length self-production. At least two of the participating artists or companies will be selected to share a run as part of the Triskelion Arts Presents program during the 2015-2016 Season. September’s series features Justin Rivera, DanceTheYard, Quentin Burley, and Sum Bones Co. Schedule: Thursday, September 25: Justin Rivera and DanceTheYard Friday, September 26: Quentin Burley and Sum Bones Co. Saturday, September 27: DanceTheYard and Quentin Burley Sunday, September 28: Sum Bones Co. and Justin Rivera About the Artists: Justin Rivera presents Foster a Tale, a piece that explores the way we experience and interpret memory. It displays a few of the extreme human conditions and asks the audience to connect (or not) based on their own history. Inspired by memoirs and personal diaries, the work asks viewers to reflect on their own experiences and what those experiences mean now. Dance The Yard‘s Co-Artistic Directors, Jesse Keller and Alison Manning, premiere untitled, a work inspired by the stages of life, the multi-faceted and complicated reality of the human experience. Apparent, but without literal representation, the performers explore the self; womb, emergence, fear, persecution, love, community, identity, support. The viewer is brought on a journey through the strength of the soul and of community. Quentin Burley’s new work investigates how three dancers can inhabit a thousand ideas. By becoming entirely new beings at every turn, this trio explores a cinematic way to sequence random events into an absurd adventure. This splattered collage ranges from the surreal to the utmost mundane – resulting in an awkward odyssey rich with dry humor and grand virtuosity. Adrian Galvin of Sum Bones Co. presents Solar Well, a kinetic mythology of greatly varied amplitude. Two separate dance-organisms have been fused together into a symbiotic creature of uncommon dynamic range, contrast, power, and intimacy.

Gallus Gallus Domesticus Project Description It is a dance about being chicken; always afraid the sky is falling; about being a post-modern domesticated free-range female searching the environment for threats. It is about the conceptual object of the body, a breast, a thigh, a wing and where the ability for flight was lost. It is about the memory of wildness and the language in the prayers of a prey animal. The intersection of cultural conditioning and biological imperative in this banal, brutal human form is vain, afraid of aging, illness, loss and death.

THE FIREBIRD
 CHOREOGRAPHY: Stephen Mills AGON
 CHOREOGRAPHY: George Balanchine
 © The George Balanchine Trust MUSIC: Igor Stravinsky
 LIVE ACCOMPANIMENT: Austin Symphony Orchestra Sparks fly in September as we open the season with two fantastic works, both with dramatic scores composed by Igor Stravinsky. The production begins with The Firebird, in all its vivid glory. Adapted from a Russian folk-tale, the Firebird gives her life for love, but ultimately rises from the ashes like a phoenix. Artistic Director Stephen Mills pairs this piece with George Balanchine’s Agon.
 
 Created in 1957, Agon has been acknowledged as one of Balanchine’s great masterworks. One of a series in his “leotard ballets,” Balanchine strips away all costumes and scenery to allow the audience to “see the music, hear the dance.”

Low cost parking is available at the city's garages, just a half block south on Locust Street. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she's equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cookwith what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448 For additional information please contact Manager Richard

Have We Come A Long Way, Baby? curating is always in conversation with history, is a program celebrating and exploring the West Coast postmodern dance lineage through an intergenerational lineup of female soloists: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Peiling Kao and Hope Mohr. Between 1962 & 1964, the Judson Dance Theater in New York City radically shifted the course of dance history. Through a series of influential concerts at Judson Church, they crafted provocative performances that challenged traditional conceptions about what counts as dance. Their abstract pieces, which included humorous, pedestrian and improvised movement and text, made space for new approaches to artmaking in ways that continue to drive innovation in contemporary dance. With the recent 50th anniversary of the Judson Dance Theater, the time is ripe for discussion and celebration of the West Coast’s postmodern lineage. Halprin will perform The Courtesan and the Crone (1999), her acclaimed solo that addresses the aging body. Forti will perform her Logomotion improvisation. Mohr will perform Carnation, Lucinda Childs’ seminal 1964 solo. Additionally, Mohr will present a new solo, shard, based on decades of journals and performed by Peiling Kao.

TRISKELION ARTS PRESENTS Launch Movement Experiment & Second Nature Friday October 3 at 8pm Saturday, October 4 at 3pm* and 8pm *The matinee performance is a FAMILIES WELCOME show! Tickets: $16* http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/794396 *at FAMILIES WELCOME shows, each regular priced adult ticket admits one free child (under 12.) Each additional child’s ticket is only $5! Launch Movement Experiment’s latest experiment features an improvised collaboration of lighting, sound, and movement. Unfettered by prescriptive notions, the work is an immediate, spontaneous composition. It is action without pre-planning. Each moment, the performers consider their external and internal dreams, allowing hidden narratives to emerge. In the forms and fractures of this work, we see ourselves. Lighting by Andy Dickerson. Moves by Rachel Mckinstry. Sound by Layton Weedeman. This musical/physical/vocal exposure of the present moment reveals what we’ve known all along – nothing happens for a reason. Next to nothing, there’s always something clamoring to exist. In this fully improvised performance, Second Nature’s Triad Without Title, distinctly evolved narratives dovetail with intricately ferocious dances. Songs avalanche out of sound and morph into gestural architectures with a keen ear for broken rhythms and altered states of mind. Will-o’-the-wisp moment is made flesh in the company’s ongoing exploration of physical immediacy and the poetic supernatural, with a real-as-your-hometown comic flare. Performed by Cassie Tunick, Heather Harpham, and Danny Tunick.

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’s rabid imagination. It’s an investigation of omnipresent insecurities, that are, perhaps, imaginary. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Wine from Llano Estacado Winery will be served in addition to light hors d’oeurves. Admission is $15, and can be easily added on to any Select-a-seat ticket order. In Quiet Tribute - Choreographer Sarah Mondle presents a solemn look into grief and those lingering memories of loss in this contemporary quintet accompanied by music from composers Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. What the Flock? - Choreographer Valerie Komkov Hill explores the behavior associated with sheep, the mentality of the flock vs. the need to express ones' individuality, as well as the physical traits often observed in...........oh who are we kidding?!! It's all about sight gags and cheap laughs at the dancers' expense. Ewe can just think of it as a baaa--d dream'. She Is... – Inspired by her own strong feminine role models, choreographer Kyla Olson explores the unique characteristics that make women so vital and enriching in our lives. The piece features the hauntingly beautiful compositions of Max Richter. This piece debuted in April 2011. Shoo Be Doo Wop (Scat a Tat Tat) – Choreographer Ali Duffy explores a fusion of jazz, swing, and contemporary dance genres in a bright and bouncy work featuring seven dancers. A layered investigation of structure, variance and group form, the piece maintains high energy and focuses on the traditional performative elements of American vernacular jazz dance. Shoo Be Doo Wop is set to the music of Count Basie, Nat King Cole, and Billie Holiday. Runaway - Choreographer Genevieve Durham DeCesaro uses a quirky and intimate sound score as the background for a beguiling duet that weaves in and out of independence and partnership. The Virgin, A Whore, The Wife and An Other – Choreographer Genevieve Durham DeCesaro plays on old, tired, yet perpetuated female archetypes in this witty and cynical quartet. Of Earth and Sky, a fusion of dance, body percussion, and visual art, re-imagines Popol Vuh, the ancient text of Mayan creation stories. Epic and fantastical, the image-laden text inspired a ritualistic large group dynamic of full-bodied, athletic movement. Body percussion bonds this tribe and projected imagery further intensifies atmosphere of striking dimension. Choreographer Ali Duffy, visual artist Bryan Wheeler, and percussionist Kris Olson join forces, mixing aesthetic textures and layers in the work. Lumina - Lighting designer Emmett Buhmann and choreographer Rachel Ure partner in exploration of light as a tangible medium through three contrasting vignettes in styles of character jazz, contemporary, and group improvisation. They invite the light to not only support the dancers but to become a principal character on stage. In this unique marriage of light and movement, dancers partner with light, at times being enveloped and embraced by it, and at other times flirting with it while playing in shadows. Rhythm & Grooves- Choreographer/director Sarah Mondle, with help from dynamic camera man duo Eric Barton and Adam Gallegos present a video dance exploring the ideas of rhythm and "groove-ment" in a non-traditional setting. The idea is that movement maybe spontaneous or choreographed, but that either one undulates and resonates with the beat of life. Set amongst concrete immobile structures, impassible brick alleyways, and lonely empty spaces, the dance fills and moves these spaces according to this beat of life. One thing is for sure, the rhythm is going to get you! Duel - Inspired by William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 100, Nicole Wesley explores the struggle of artist’s block and the redemption of creative invention through her new work Duel. The clock is ticking… Where is that inspiration? Do you have it? If so, I want it back. For more information, contact Artistic Director Ali Duffy: ali@flatlandsdance.org

“The basis of my dance is an attempt to make visible what already exists in the environment but was hitherto invisible and without meaning.” In dance, if we position ourselves to perceive the environment directly, the environment itself will manifest in our body as presence, physicality, and movement. When the mind and body are in a status of acute listening, we can approach an expression of the true-self. This LEIMAY Ludus Training Lab will focus on physical and mental training to sharpen awareness, sensitivity, and concentration. How can the body be moved, not by self-volition, but by the properties of time, space, and matter? How to sense and embody the subtleties of density, weight, temperature, light/darkness, textures, and currents of time and space. How to clearly externalize and to direct felt sensations and desires as an expression. Dates: October 24th, 6:00pm-10:00pm // October 25th & 26th, 10:00am - 2:00pm Price: $160 full course / $56 single class Join us for another LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer and Body Weather Practitioner Sherwood Chen from October 17th - 19th! http://leimaymain.cavearts.org/?p=3015

Born in the Year of the Horse, Josephine Baker left her homeland in the USA in the 1920s to live in France where she became an international superstar and a symbol of the Jazz Age. Hers is a story of struggle, humour, dignity and survival. Kimberley Cooper uses the idea of Josephine Baker as inspiration to create a fictional fantasy in an exotic, erotic, otherworldly setting. Experience images, sounds and movement that celebrate the essence of Josephine Baker in the Year of the Horse. "... I improvised, crazed by the music... Even my teeth and eyes burned with fever. Each time I leaped I seemed to touch the sky and when I regained earth it seemed to be mine alone." - Josephine Baker

If you have not seen this group, this is an opportunity to experience their high energy and passion for their art that defines a new dimension in Flamenco and Spanish dance traditions.Carolina and her daughter Carolé offer a special evening for a date night, family gathering, or get together with friends and co-workers. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune Contact Carolina Lugo for additional information about classes, workshops, and bookings at 415-933-9391 carolinalugo1@msn.com or visit her website at www.carolinalugo.com For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448

Are you in need of a sultry Spanish night or a bohemian adventure? So brace yourself for a night when the well worn hardwood floors of Pachamama resonate with the pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar. If you have not seen this group, this is an opportunity to experience their high energy and passion for their art that defines a new dimension in Flamenco and Spanish dance traditions. Carolina and her daughter Carolé offer a special evening for a date night, family gathering, or get together with friends and co-workers. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune Best to arrive 30 minutes before show times for seating. Allow for traffic and parking which is available next door or across the street.
