There is much to report on the Antaeus Dance home front. Summer classes come to an end tomorrow evening. FALL CLASSES BEGIN AUGUST 24th and run through October 28th. These mixed-level classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30pm in the beautiful Antaeus Dance studio at Pilgrim Church in Tremont.
The Company leaves for Pennsylvania this Sunday for the annual Allegheny Summer Dance Intensive at Allegheny College in Meadville. I have been directing this intensive for the past 10 years and look forward to it every year. This year Heather Koniz, Sherri Mills and former company member Carla Monzo will be teaching classes along with yours truly.
The Company returns to PA a week after the intensive to film for Prospect & Refuge (more on that below).
Catch us at Pandemonium at CPT on Saturday, September 11th. If you've never been, you must. It's a great party for an even greater cause.
Participants from the summer intensive will perform in Antaeus Dance's annual fall concert at the College, this year on Saturday, October 16th. We will be performing much of the work from our recent Home Front concert, featuring dances by Jenita McGowan and Marissa Glorioso.
After that the company focuses on the Prospect & Refuge project with dance maker and performance artist Doug Lodge, film maker Cynthia Penter, and composer Bill Sallak. Parts of the work were unveiled in Cleveland Public Theatre's DanceWorks 2010 series. The full premiere will be in the Gordon Square Theatre May 19-22, 2011 as part of DanceWorks 2011.
Last, but not least, Antaeus Dancers Shanna Sheline and Sherri Mills are featured in photographs by Rev. Tricia Gilbert at Truffles Pastry Shop (11122 Clifton Boulevard). They will be up through August 2oth.
More to come!
