Seeing Michelle Dorrance with my amazing tap dance teacher Tony Mayes!
Miami City Ballet brought out the best of Christopher Wheeldon’s choreography. Love how the dancers defy gravity in Polyphonia.
Trisha Brown’s two dancers are as incredible as yesterday. It’s amazing how they stay so synchronized and connected despite dancing the majority of the choreography facing away from each other.
Still deeply impressed by the creativity and amount of energy in Vincent Mantsoe’s work!
Fall for Dance opened tonight at New York City Center with four amazing performances.
Dorrance Dance was stunning. I love how much life, character, and personality Michelle Dorrance gives to tap dance.
The dark horse of the night goes to Vincent Mantsoe in his solo work “Gula” (or “Bird”) where he brought to life the movements (and singing!!!) of a free-spirited animal. The opening fog was really cool, but I wasn’t sure how it was related to the rest of the performance?
Learnt more about (post-)modern dance with Trisha Brown’s “You Can See Us”! I much enjoyed seeing more of how dance was developed in the 20th century.
With incredible precision and techniques, Miami City Ballet opened tonight’s performance with Christopher Wheeldon’s “Polyphonia.”
