97-year old dance teacher still teaches and choreographs for adult dancers
MOVERS & SHAKERS:

Check out this AMAZING short doc and read up on Helyn Flanagan the 97-year old dance teacher still teaching and choreographing for adult dancers!

LEGENDARY LEGENDS:
Carmen de Lavallade Looks Back on an Extraordinary Career  


"Horton, [Carmen de Lavallade] says, 'choreographed  like a director. We were performing story ballets, like Salome and Yerma, dramatic pieces. The technique was difficult and quite wonderful and — choreodramas, he called them. He let you be an individual. He didn't expect cookie-cutter dancers'. "

DIVERSITY WATCH:
Dance review: Diversity Shines at newMoves Contemporary Dance Festival 

"Now in its seventh year, newMoves has supported more than 50 artists. This year's applicant pool alone exceeded 70, which was boiled down to 16 choreographers. But, in some ways, the festival has become about more than just cutting-edge dance. Looking around the theater, young and old, black and white, gay and straight filled the seats. On stage, there was a similar cross section of artists. In an art form that has been notoriously white and male dominated, it was refreshing and inspiring to see."

RESTAGING: L.A. Dance Project Takes on Merce Cunningham

"So it's fitting that the L.A. Dance Project, founded by Benjamin Millepied in 2012, has made Cunningham choreography a recurrent part of its repertory. Cunningham is the only dead choreographer whose work this troupe includes; he's also the greatest and, it's fair to say, the most divisive, choreographer it programs."

DANCE EDUCATION:

A Nonprofit in Harlem Wants to Bring Dance to Every Public School in America
National Dance Institute gives students free dance classes. Why? Because arts education matters. 

"My mother believed that children shouldn't be considered learned or educated without being able to play a musical instrument or sign or both; know something about theatre and have performed it; know something about poetry and have performed it; public speak; and dance". - Jacques d’Amboise, 82

"There are students who learn best through movement, which is the value of dance being offered in our school system... in community outreach programs, we see many young people finding their 'voice' in their body, in the freedom of expression that dance provides." - is the thing, I think, that keeps me sane." -Valerie Winborne

REVIEW:

At Danspace Project, Examining the Relation Between Bodies and Things
 

"Would you be all right holding my ankle?" she asked a woman seated by her feet. "Do you mind pulling on my elbow?" she asked the man closest to her propped-up arm. The resulting pose looked like a step on the way to lying down — reclining, interrupted.

REVIEW:

'Obsidian Tear' Is a Choreographic Breakthrough for Wayne McGregor"

"When the men dance together again, their duet is filled with resonant gestures — hands held close but not touching, as if blocked by a force field, one man's arm circling the other's face, a foot placed deliberately on a back."
