Eva Dean Dance is dancing into its 31st year! 2015 has been an inspired year of building a pathway from the past into the future, resurfacing vintage Eva Dean Dance repertory and creating new work. 2016 promises to be equally fruitful as we make plans to develop new work, showcase and display our vibrant and extensive history, and continue to provide our positive community based projects at our studio, Union Street Dance. Your support and belief in what we do is vital to keep us moving into the future. Eva Dean Dance is a Not-for-Profit Company and your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent of the law and is deeply appreciated.
Currently, I am in the beginning stages of developing Pendulum,as part of a larger trilogy Liquid Silver,with Company Members George Hirsch, Kirana Peters, Lucia Rodriguez, and Jeremiah Stanfield as a part of the competitive CUNY Dance Initiative 2015 Residency at Baruch College. The company and I will need more rehearsal time in 2016 to complete the first part of this trilogy. Stay tuned as we are planning Works-In-Progress showings (WIPs) at Union Street Dance. At these WIPs you will also be able to view videos and photos of my vintage and more current work such as Slice (1984, premiered at the Jewish Center NYC), Melba (1990, premiered at Danspace). Swirl (2002, premiered as a part of the FringeNYC) and Ellipses (2014, premiered as a part of Fringe Recklinghausen in Germany).
Union Street Dance’s Feng Shui is as strong as ever with its community spirit and creative energy. ChristinaNoel & the Creature is this year’s Eva Dean Dance recipient of the Mertz Gilmore Late-Stage Creative Stipend following in a line of talented choreographers who have received the grant previously: Francine Ott, Satoshi Haga and Rie Fukazawa, and Jamal Jackson. We also happily continue to provide subsidized rehearsal space to over 125 choreographers annually.
Your support will go directly towards Eva Dean Dance’s 2016 WIPs and will help us chime into the New Year with our community spirited projects. Thank you in advance for your belief and support of Eva Dean Dance.
"Dance has the power to communicate aspects of the human condition where words have failed." Eva Dean, Artistic Director
