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.

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.

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

Dances Patrelle presents The Yorkville Nutcracker from December 4-7, 2014 at The Kaye Play-house at Hunter College, E. 68th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues, NYC. Performances: Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7pm; Saturday at 2pm; and Sunday at 12pm and 5pm. Tickets are $45-85 (student and senior discounts available) and will be available beginning November 4, 2014 at www.dancespatrelle.org, by phone at 212-772-4448, or in person at The Kaye Playhouse Box Office. The Yorkville Nutcracker, set in 1895, includes lavish sets and costumes which takes the audience on a tour through Olde New York’s most beloved landmarks, including a holiday party at Gracie Mansion, dancing at the Crystal Palace in the New York Botanical Garden, and skating in Central Park. Addition-ally, The Yorkville Nutcracker provides an opportunity for young dancers to dance alongside profes-sional artists. This year, we are thrilled to have Abi Stafford and Adrian Danchig-Waring, both Prin-cipal Dancers with New York City Ballet, as our Sugar Plum and Cavalier. This will be Adrian Dan-chig-Waring’s first appearance with Dances Patrelle. Other dancers include Matthew Dibble and Julie Voshell dancing the Arabian Divertissement and Grant Dettling and Katie Keith Dettling as the Snow King and Queen. Dances Patrelle (dP) is a dynamic professional ballet company celebrating its 25th season! dP presents two annual seasons in New York -- the timeless holiday tradition, The Yorkville Nutcracker, and a spring repertory season featuring world premieres and classic Patrelle favorites. Mr. Patrelle’s body of work includes over 50 original ballets choreographed for Dances Patrelle, and spans an incredibly wide range of styles, from his beloved American Songbook collection, to such contemporary classics as Madame X, Macbeth and Rhapsody in Blue. Heralded by Lynn Garafola in Dance Magazine as a choreographer with “a personal vision…classical because it is rooted in metaphor and symbolic language [and] populist because of its legibility and broad cultural resonance,” Patrelle has also cultivated a long-time collabora-tion with composer Patrick Soluri, commissioning four original scores including 2009's Murder at the Masque for dP's 20th Anniversary. Known for attracting the great talent of each generation, Dances Pa-trelle is pleased to count ballet stars such as Marcelo Gomes, Jenifer Ringer, Donald Williams, Lourdes Lopez, and Cynthia Gregory among its dancers. For 25 seasons, Dances Patrelle has tapped into the human experience, connecting intimately with the audience and continuously reinventing dramatic dance. In 2013, the company was named the resident ballet company of the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center. “In Francis Patrelle’s ballets, the characters come alive. His choreography is full of heart and soul.” – Cynthia Gregory, Prima Ballerina For more information, visit www.dancespatrelle.org.

Elaborating on themes of cultural conflict, power struggle, widespread psychological trauma and disruption of daily life, the work explores the evolving dynamics of how personal and national identity are perceived in a globalized society. This work employs dramatic juxtapositions of Chinese folk dance styles with techniques of contemporary dance, in a broad expressive range from harsh to disarmingly harmonious. Where Your Voices Are sparks a critical dialogue on power struggles and cultural hierarchy. This multicultural experiential work is a platform, a catalyst, for individuals to craft their own definition of cultural justice.

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

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

Nadia Tykulsker, Saul Ulerio, and Tyler Ashley December 18-19, 2014 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts' Aldous Theater 118 N. 11th Street, 3rd Fl, Brooklyn, NY 11249 LOCATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Please visit www.triskelionarts.org for location updated info. TICKETS: $16 | http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/835727 Choreographers Nadia Tykulsker, Saul Ulerio, and Tyler Ashley present Soft Openings, an evening dedicated to tackling performance as research. Each artist is deeply invested in using the experience of presentation to inform the development of the works being shown. Nadia Tykulsker’s newest project, Saw you Yesterday, seeks to tread the line between reality and fantasy in hopes of reinventing the way we function as a community within the structure of “performance.” Saw you Yesterday is about diving in, following tangents, and putting non-sequiturs next to each other. It tries to make sense of where our minds wander and simultaneously accept that perhaps new possibilities exist within a wandering mind—that possibility lies inside of fantasy. The dancers create new bodies, new communities, and new energies before our eyes and are offered up to the audience lovingly on a platter. They will present an intimate look into the performers world as a stepping-stone to the next version of this work. Performed by Katie Dean, Tara Sheena, Brandon Washington, and Aya Wilson. Sound design by Christine Hucal, set design by Hiroko Ishikawa. Tyler Ashley’s KIDNAP ME investigates providing for an unborn family, answering to hunger of all kinds, and the slutty hustle of a wannabe-star. Bela Tarr’s film “The Turin Horse” and music of the late Julius Eastman serve as inspiration maps for duration, angle, and repetition. Ashley examines the family unit versus personal evolution in control, vulnerability, and desperation. Live drawing in the performance celebrates queer motifs embedded in our bodies and the art, and composes a historical record of the creation process and resulting show. Performed by Tyler Ashley, Arantxa Araujo, Diego Montoya, McSherry, Rakia Seaborn, Shane Shane, and Gillian Walsh. In Saúl Ulerio’s preparatory exercise no.10: nodancer aka. a dance for the hour of wolf, Ulerio continues his explorations in the intersection of Wagnerian ideals and Ingmar Bergman’s dramatic humanism. After a year of residency at New York Live Arts, this dance emerges from the tonality of aloneness, pain, folklore and repetition, while aims to evoke questions around expressionistic ideals and tamed queering. Natasha Heggen will join Ulerio in this last preparatory exercise. Performed by Natasha Heggem and Saúl Ulerio. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

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. By pairing the ballets of legendary creators with those of contemporary visionaries, NYTB brings a new understanding and appreciation of dance. The approach to live performance for children is groundbreaking and unique.

NYTB is committed to reaching underserved audiences by performing in small cities throughout the U.S. Its professional school provides ballet training based on the Cecchetti syllabus.

Princeton Youth Ballet (PYB) will be performing The Snow Queen at Princeton High School Performing Arts Center on Saturday and Sunday, December 20 and 21 at 4 PM. The ballet is based on the same Hans Christian Andersen story that inspired the hit Disney movie, Frozen. “Ours is a much more accurate telling of the original story,” says Artistic Director and choreographer Risa Kaplowitz, “but the theme of love’s ability to triumph over evil is pervasive in both.” The production begins with best friends Gerda and Kai living happily in a tiny Scandinavian village. During Christmas Eve festivities, shards of a mirror enchanted by the devil lodge in Kai’s eyes so that all he sees is ugliness in his heart, which causes it to turn cold and cruel. The once loving boy soon mocks the townspeople and spurns his longtime friend. Kai is abducted by the beautiful yet wicked Snow Queen, who revels in his callousness. Gerda embarks on a quest to save her erstwhile playmate, braving sorceresses, robbers, and the Snow Queen's army of Ice Maidens in order to rekindle Kai’s inner flame of kindness. “The Snow Queen is the perfect introduction to classical ballet,” says PYB board president, Kathy Azaro. “It has a compelling story, gorgeous costumes, and of course beautiful dancers. Children absolutely fall in love with this show – and seeing their mesmerized faces is enormously gratifying for us all.” Instead of the traditional backdrop, the performance features state-of-the-art projections, created by David Haneman, which transport the audience to another world: from a small Scandinavian village during Christmas time, to a midnight forest, to an ice castle in the mountains. "Projection is a wonderful tool to help tell a story that has many scenes," says Ms. Kaplowitz. "It adds movement to the entire production and really takes the audience on a thrilling ride." Princeton Youth Ballet is thrilled to announce that alumna Jillian Davis will be reprising her role as The Snow Queen. Ms. Davis, a current member of the famed Complexions Contemporary Ballet Company, trained at Pacific Northwest Ballet on full scholarship after graduating from Princeton Dance and Theater Studio and Princeton Youth Ballet (then DanceVision). Ms. Kaplowitz reflects, "Jillian was made for this role. At over six feet tall, she is a fierce and stunning dancer. The audience is in for a real treat." Also returning this year is Max Azaro, a Princeton Dance and Theater alumnus who won a full scholarship to study at the American Ballet Theatre JKO School. “One of our missions at Princeton Youth Ballet is to give talented and well-trained young dancers the chance to perform principal roles in professional-quality performances,” says Ms. Kaplowitz. “Another is to encourage a love and appreciation for classical ballet through inspired storytelling, magical productions, and uncompromising artistry.” Princeton Youth Ballet is selling a limited number of VIP tickets for the Sunday performance which include admission to a special Snow Queen Tea. Guests will be treated to delicious treats, a special gift, and a visit from the Snow Queen herself, along with other principal cast members. Princeton Youth Ballet also offers special discounts to Girl Scouts, as well as a “Dancer” badge workshop specifically for Brownies. All Scouts receive a goody bag with a custom PYB fun patch. For more information email info@princetonyouthballet.org. The Snow Queen is the perfect holiday ballet for all ages. Tickets are just $20 for adults and $15 for children, students, and seniors, when purchased in advance online at www.PrincetonYouthBallet.org or by phone at 1-800-838-3006. Tickets at the door are $25 for adults, and $20 for children, students, and seniors. For group discounts, email info@princetonyouthballet.org or call 609-948-8065.

Triskelion Arts Presents... ChrisMastersDance December 20-21, 2014 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts' Aldous Theater 118 N. 11th Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11249 LOCATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Please visit www.triskelionarts.org for updated location info. TICKETS: $16 | http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/835751 Triskelion Arts is pleased to present ChrisMastersDance’s new work, Exit Strategies, focusing on the phenomenology of black holes. Exit Strategies features sixteen movers with an original music score by Sven Britt of Stranger Cat and Ex-Fiancée. Rife with storytelling, intricate patterns, and lush partnering, the work questions issues of identity, home, and necessary chaos. This project also includes work by collaborator Robert Flynt, renowned New York based photographer and video artist David Fishel. ChrisMastersDance is a Brooklyn-based dance company built by a team of interdisciplinary collaborators and directed by Chris Masters. The organization’s philosophy in dance making is that the work should function as a container, seamlessly blending movement invention, theoretical investigation, and character-driven theatricality. Like a container, the work can be unpacked dependent on the witness’ interest or experience in viewing dance work. Often theoretical, always cerebral, the dances crafted by Chris Masters in collaboration with his movement artists and creative team offers an invitation to engage in a myriad of ways. The primary objective is to create an empathetic avenue for dialogue between performer, witness, and community. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College and Anton Krilloff present a Russian holiday fairy tale, The Snow Maiden (Снегурочка), on Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 4pm. The Snow Maiden is performed in Russian with English subtitles. Ticket prices range from $35 to $65 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tues-Sat, 1pm-6pm). The running time is 1 hour and 10 minutes with no intermission. In this magical Russian Christmas version of the Cinderella story, Grandfather Frost (the Russian Santa Claus) transforms a poor young girl into the beautiful Snow Maiden after proving her worthiness. This delightful children's extravaganza incorporates traditional Russian songs, dances and elaborate costumes to create a winter wonderland. At the end of the performance, every child in the audience will receive a Christmas candy gift box. The festivities begin with a musical interlude of Russian folk music played by the ensemble Barynya, followed by entertainment and riddles by skomorokhi, traditional Russian clowns who historically traveled from town to town, performing in the streets and at fairs, singing comedic songs and acting out satirical sketches. As the pre-show comes to a close, Grandfather Frost (the Russian Santa Claus) is introduced, who acts as a type of narrator for the musical fairy tale to follow. The Snow Maiden premiered in 2008 in Moscow. The creative team on this show includes an honored Russian writer and director Boris Boreyko (The Bremen Town Musicians), director and choreographer Andrey Ivanov, and costume designer Tatyana Kudryavtseva. All costumes were created by the Mariinsky Theatre tailors. www.thesnowmaiden.com.

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

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with theater master Mario Biagini Associate Director of the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards This LEIMAY Ludus Lab is open to actors, dancers, body-rooted performers, or anybody interested in exploring the elements of the actor’s craft. Within the whole duration of this LEIMAY Ludus Lab taught by guest director Mario Biagini, participants will explore fundamental elements of the actor’s craft such as organicity, relation, contact, impulse, intention, action and reaction, the relation between process and form, and strive towards an understanding of the difference between movement and action. Under the direction and guidance of Biagini, participants will work on the creation of individual and collective acting scenes, on singing ancient traditional songs, and learn elements of the physical training developed at the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards over the past twenty-eight years.

Modules will explore the basic but complex constitutive elements of the actor’s craft: • Relation: precision / organicity • Relation: tradition / individual work • Relation: ritual / drama • Composed movement and rhythm • Singing • Vibration of the voice • Body resonators and spatial resonance • Awareness of space and reacting to its constituent elements • Improvisation: the impulses / the vigilant mind • Improvisation within a structure • Search for a precise line and logic of impulses and physical actions: the score Full Schedule: Monday January 12th-Saturday, January 17th 2015, 10:00AM - 6:00PM Detailed Schedule: Module 1: Singing and Organic Behavior: Jan 12, 13, 14, (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 2: Physical Training: Jan 15, 16, 17, (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 3: Intentional Action – Spontaneity and Structure Jan 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, Monday - Saturday afternoons, 3:00PM - 6:00PM Full Tuition: $756, Module 1 - $240, Module 2 $240, Module 3 $360 Online registration is required.

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer Mari Osanai This LEIMAY Ludus Lab with guest dancer Mari Osanai is divided in three different modules: 1) Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part One, 2) Noguchi Taizo Part Two, and 3) Movement Creation and Structure. Modules can be taken separately or together. However early registration and discounts are only open to those who plan on taking all the modules. This LEIMAY Ludus Lab is open to dancers, body-rooted performers, physical actors of all levels, ages, and capabilities. Within the whole duration of this LEIMAY Ludus Lab participants will explore fundamental elements of Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics). During the third module under the guidance of Osanai, participants will work on the creation of short individual and group pieces. Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics) was created in Japan by Michizo Noguchi (1914-1998) during the same period as butoh was being developed by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. The aim is to develop the uniqueness of each individual movement and to relieve any undue strain. Taizo means ‘gym’ in Japanese, but not in the conventional sense. As Osanai explains, “This technique has nothing to do with the swelling of the muscles nor resistance forces. The body learns to move in a certain way but is loose and fluid. It becomes soft and flexible as it uses its own weight to be moved.” These modules will allow participants to experience Mari’s unique approach to dance and understanding of Noguchi Taizo, and to discover their own individual and unique approach to movement creation. Dates: January 28th - February 8th Detailed Schedule: Module 1: Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part 1: Jan 28, 29, 30 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) 6:00PM - 10:00PM Module 2: Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part 2: Feb 1, 2, 3 (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 3: Creating your own Movement: Feb 5, 6, 7, 8, (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 6:00PM - 10:00PM Price: Full course - $580, Module 1 - $198, Module 2 $198, Module 3 $264 Pre-registration is required Members’ discounts and other discounts valid for online payment only http://leimaymain.cavearts.org/?p=3119

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

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