ZOË KEATING & APEX DANCE COLLABORATION A STUNNING SUCCESS

A great thanks to all who helped to put the show together. This was one of those dream come true moments for me as an artist. To collaborate with so many amazing people: avante garde cellist Zoë Keating, textile enchantress Lynne Bruning, and the amazing dancers at Apex created an energy that is hard to express. The end result was a show that is sensually stunning. We received an almost immediate standing ovation from a Tuesday night audience that packed Chautauqua auditorium. We also had some amazing artists working behind the scenes to record the process. Dennis St. John at Veria Technologies Inc and Adam Tyler at Spin Echo Industries filmed the process from beginning to end with video clips and a full documentary of the creation of the show which will be coming out soon! Here is a sneak peek filmed at dress rehearsal.

The reviews for the show were glowing and you can read them by clicking on the links below.

Dance in the News: Cirque du Soleil on Jay Leno!

Cirque du Soleil

We just caught Cirque du Soleil‘s Kooza performance on Jay Leno and it was awesome! “Kooza” is a two-and-a-half traveling show that will feature clowns, crazy acrobats and colorful costumes (nothing new, but nonetheless awesome!) The show will run until Dec. 20.

Cool Dance Blog

I just found a super cool new website called 30 Seconds of Dance that has lots of neat little clips of the different genres out there. Best of all, the clips are in HD!

Check out some of the clips of modern dance, while you’re at it. Very cool.

Dance in the News: Models en pointe!

It’s fashion week in Russia and designer Tatyana Parfyonova stormed the stage with her gorgeous presentation of her new collection, inspired by and dedicated to the Russian Ballet. To enhance the “weightless” attributes of her new line, Parfyonova’s models danced down the catwalk en pointe! Check out the video here.
