Wearing Many Hats

Very few of us are just a dancer or just a dance teacher, we are usually trying to juggle many different roles at the same time and it can be challenging.  When I owned my studio I was constantly switching between studio owner, teacher, choreographer, office manager, grant writer, artistic…

Increasing Your Traditional Media Exposure

Keeping your studio or company name in front of the public is a challenge for most dancers.  Paid advertising can be effective, but costly and sometimes it's hard to know how to get exposure otherwise.  

The adage "You don't get something for nothing" is pretty much spot on when you are looking at marketing, but…

Dancing in Heels

Dancing in heels is nothing new.  Throughout the history of many dance styles heels seem to come in and out of fashion.  Historical pictures have documented dancers in heels going back as far as the middle ages for both male and female dancers for social dances, but it's only been recently where I've seen classes…

New York City Ballet Delights With a Varied Robbins Triple Bill

The All Robbins program offered this spring season by New York City Ballet is a testament to the range and depth of the choreographer’s genius. “Glass Pieces”, the 1983 work to the driving rhythms of music by Philip Glass, is an ideal opener with its masterful blend of postmodern and classical movement styles that call to mind the pulsating urgency of urban life.

On Friday, May 9th 2014, Rebecca Krohn and Amar Ramasar were outstanding in the section of “Glass Pieces”…

American Ballet Theatre Delights With Gallic-Flavored Highjinks in “Don Quixote”

On the rain-soaked evening of May 16th 2014, ABT delivered a mood-boosting performance of “Don Quixote” for a full house of grateful dancegoers at the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center. Dazzling Gallic-flavored dancing and full-throttle comedy to the music of Minkus helped to push dire flash flood warnings out of the minds of many in the audience. I heard plenty of comments during intermissions by people who said that driving in from the suburbs or sloshing through sidewalk puddles…

“The Men Dancers, Plus!” Celebrates the Life of the Legendary Frederic Franklin

A roll call of dance greats – performers, directors, critics, and historians – took the stage one after the other at the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts in New York City on the evening of May 30th 2014 to share their memories of one of the greatest of them all, Frederic Franklin.

 

Known to everyone as Freddie, the affable and gifted star delighted audiences during an astonishing eight-decade career beginning with his debut at 17 and closing with his portrayal…

The School of American Ballet Celebrates 50 Years of Workshop Performances

On June 3rd 2014, The School of American Ballet’s 50th annual Workshop Performance at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Lincoln Center once again proved that Balanchine was right when he famously said “But first a school”. That remark was Mr. B’s response after Lincoln Kirstein invited him to come to the United States to co-found a ballet company in 1933. Eight decades later, as evidenced by the overall high level of talent and artistry on stage, SAB continues to deserve its reputation as this…

DancerDeals

Dancers (and their parents) know the lifestyle of a dancer isn't easy - it requires fortitude against criticism, pain, and devastating rejection. The financial costs of classes, clothing, and time from work adds to their sacrifice. Yet, when the drive to fulfill their inexplicable passion carries them forward, their lives are forever changed. This is a fact.
My purpose is to help dancers. My joy is seeing students full of life and floating on clouds. But the underlying storms…

Boston Ballet Triumphs at the Close of Its 50th Anniversary Season During First Ever Visit to the Big Apple

On June 27th 2014 at the Koch Theatre in Lincoln Center during The Boston Ballet’s first ever engagement in New York City, the company proved to be better than the New York City Ballet at dancing Balanchine. I know I’m not alone in holding that opinion because I overheard several people seated near me express the same sentiment during the enthusiastic applause for Symphony in Three Movements. The principals and soloists were superb, but the corps de ballet was the true star…

Limón Dance Company Offers Somethings Old and Somethings New

A judicious mix of now-classic Limón works from the 1950s and 1960s along with pieces by current choreographers made for a superb evening of dance on Friday, May 3rd 2014 at the Joyce. For me, Limón’s decades-old masterworks have stood the test of time. Not only that, but I applaud artistic director Carla Maxwell for choosing to keep them alive for today’s dancegoers. As I always used to tell my ballet students, we can’t hang our history on a wall in a museum. The only way to preserve our…
