Very exciting news, we will be performing in the Arizona Dance Festival, October 8-9.
The Desert Dance Theater will be presenting the Arizona Dance Festival 2010 at the Tempe Center for the Arts Studio on October 8-9, 2010 at 730 pm. Each evening will showcase a different set of individual dance artists and emerging artist groups as well as professional companies from all genres and styles of dance, featuring dance artists and dance companies from Arizona, Nevada, California, Massachusetts, New York and Hawaii. Pre-show music will be performed by cellist Kristen Miller, playing selections from her newly released CD. A post-performance Q & A will be facilitated by the Arizona Dance Coalition directly after the show.
We are looking foward to this event and cannot wait! Thank you as always for your continued support.
This weekend's concert was a great success! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support us. We got a lot of positive feedback and wonderful thoughts. We could not do it without all of you behind us.
We were very excited to perform a couple of new works, Tango Pointe, choreographed by Kelly Roth and Body of Water 2 - The Aftermath, choreographed by Nannette Brodie, and all of our other pieces as well. We even got to see Nannette dance at duet with Andy Vaca, as well and she did an amazing job! It is always such a pleasure to get to perform a full weekend of dance and we were all sad to be done.
We are going to continue to work hard and have a lot of upcoming events, so please continue to check back on the website and our Facebook for upcoming information!
Thank you again for your continued support.
We are excited for our upcoming concert this weekend, which opens on September 18th! We have two shows on Saturday at 2 pm and 8 pm, and on Sunday the 19th we have one more show at 2 pm. The concert will take place at the Martha B. Knoebel Theater, at California State University, Long Beach.
We will be presenting a concert of works created by Nannette Brodie, Andrew Vaca, Lori Bryhni, Erica Villalpando, Peter Kalivas, Jennie Sustaita and Kelly Roth. The company will be joined by Andrew Vaca with his company, Jazzworks - Long Beach, for this event.
Nannnette Brodie and Andrew Vaca will premier a new duet commissioned by Mr. Vaca, choreographed by Lori Bryhni. The new NBDT work that will premier at this concert is Ms. Brodies work, Body of Water, with music by Shane Cadman, sets by Seth Arreola, lighting by Jody Caley and costumes by Diane Brown. This work has been a two year project funded in part by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Arts Council for Long Beach.
