NYTB has produced its studio series, Dance on A Shoestring, for many years, which enables established and developing artists to try out new ideas. The performances are offered in a venue where the community groups can come to see high quality ballet offered by “their” neighborhood company at affordable prices.
The program includes:
An excerpt from The Alice-In-Wonderland Follies
Choreography by Keith Michael
Choreography by Marco Pelle
Choreography by Gemma Bond
Choreography by Antonia Franceschi with an original score by Allen Shawn
Three Shades of Blue
Choreography by Dan Siretta with an original score by Lynn Crigle
This popular and affordable series has guests David Parker and The Bang Group, Pam Tanowitz, Marco Pelle, Antonia Franceshi, Gemma Bond, Amber Sloan, and Yukiko Kashiki. We also had the chance to show works by Keith Michael, Merce Cunningham, Antony Tudor, Jose Limon, Philip King, James Waring, and James Sutton. The work presented this season will be a combination of classic ballets, new works, and popular NYTB productions. Four different programs will be presented each for two consecutive Friday and Saturday evenings from 7-8 pm. Special choreography for children from the NYTB training school is often included in the program.
