Hindsight: recognition of the realities, possibilities, or requirements of a situation, event, decision etc., after its occurrence.
Now in the 20th year of the company, the only constant is change. Possibility flourishes in each dancer’s artistry, each teaching artist’s warmth, in the administrative team’s commitment, and in our Board, funders, and volunteers’ stalwart support. It is such a privilege to share the joy of dance, offering students and audiences in-roads to discover inspiration, meaning, and joy. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, I am filled with gratitude for all that we have discovered, for the community we have built, and all that lies ahead.
Our 20th Anniversary Performance Season March 5-7, 2020 is supported by a 2020 CUNY Dance Initiative Residency at Baruch Performing Arts Center. With a focus on reflection and memory, Hindsight is an evening-length work that references signature structures from two decades of richly layered repertory and explores the growth possible from looking back at history. “Distinctive, off-kilter elegance.” – The New Yorker Our latest evening-length work entitled Crossroads, premiered in June 2019 at New York Live Arts. The piece explores forging into uncharted waters and that tumultuous process of self-discovery. Inspired by works of Magritte and Escher, Crossroads shapes a surrealistic landscape that lingers in moments at the crossroads, choosing one path or another, and how those moments steer the course of our lives.
We have recently brought on new Board members, new Teaching Artists, and new Administrative Staff into the organization and I am excited about the talent and passion they bring. Every day, I am profoundly moved by the imagination, expressiveness, and soulfulness of my dancers, designers, teaching artists, administrators, board, and volunteers. This community has blossomed over our 20 years in ways I never could have dreamed.
