JUNE BDC AIR ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE: Randall Anthony Smith
We are delighted to welcome Randall Anthony Smith to Bainbridge Dance Center back to BDC in June. As the répétiteur and assistant to the late choreographer Donald McKayle, Randall was here for a week in January to set McKayle’s Rainbow Etude on our most advanced dancers. His master classes and rehearsals were inspiring immersions in the movement language and artistic ideas of one of the most important, impactful and renown black American choreographers. Randall will return in June to coach the students before their end of the year performance.
