Ramaa Ramesh will return for the Classical Indian half of Gesture of Dance joined by new instructor Lauren Ouano Yeremian who will teach Hula. We’re also delighted that Bethany Formica, still relatively new to our Program, will return to teach the Advanced Modern class and Marie Brown joins us for the first time and will teach the Intermediate Modern class. Felicia Cruz will be teaching the second half of Advanced Ballet.
Megan Mazarick who made a piece for us for the 2013 Concert. Both are highly regarded choreographers in Philadelphia and beyond and we’re delighted that they are back with us.
Kyle “JustSole” Clark will make a Hip-hop piece for our bi-co dancers. Besides a toddler at home, Kyle has been keeping busy in the last year or so by competing in and winning, with his wife Dinita/Princess Di, the House Dance Category at “Juste Debout” an international competition in Paris, and by being invited by the ALVIN AILEY company to set a hip-hop piece on their second company! (see left for a section from Kyle’s piece) Rev. Nia Eubanks-Dixon will return to choreograph the African Ensemble, planning to explore South African Gumboot dancing. In the Spring concert, April 21 and 22, these works will join a Modern Ensemble by Mady Cantor and a Jazz work by Shannon Murphy already in progress.
