This was so much fun last year that we are doing it again. Please join us in the studios at BDC for an evening of dance featuring our Advanced Dancers. We will present classical ballet variations and modern, jazz and tap repertory works. Many pieces will be works-in-progress and teachers will have the opportunity to talk with everyone about the process of creation. And of course...there will be cookies. This is a fun way for the BDC community to come together before the holidays. All are welcome!
PARENT OBSERVATION WEEK - SUNDAY DEC 9 - SATURDAY DEC 15
We invite each dancer's biggest fans - Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas, Siblings, and Friends - to come watch class for the week before winter break. Come see how much these dancers have learned this year and how hard they have been working. We are so proud of each and every one of them.
I (Christiana) am honored to have been asked to create and perform a piece for the upcoming Merce 100: Seattle Artists Respond to Merce, curated by Velocity Artistic Executive Director Tonya Lockyer and presented as part of the international year-long Cunningham Centennial. Merce 100 will feature nine Seattle artists from different generations performing, recalling, re-enacting, reading, teaching and transmitting the work and ideas of Merce Cunningham – one of the world’s most significant postmodernist artists.
A Washington native and former student at Cornish, Merce Cunningham is one of the most influential artists ever to come out of the city of Seattle. His seven decades of exploration and chance-taking reshaped dance into a new kind of art form, deeply influencing music, visual art, performance, and film along the way. Through experimental collaborations with John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Marcel Duchamp, Charles Atlas and others, he became one of the 20th century’s most influential choreographers.
MERCE 100: Seattle Artistis Respond to Merce
