  • We have had such incredible interns during the last year at Dance Exchange. (You can read about them here, here, and here.) And our current interns are no exception! We begin with Amanda Paulick, our Production Management Intern. During Amanda's third week at Dance Exchange, she helped assistant stage managed "lost, left, found & borrowed" at Roundhouse Theatre Silver Spring. She came upstairs with a costume to fix that had a very small tear in it, and said: "I know the audience won't notice this tear, but I will, and it will drive me crazy". That kind of attention and care for the very small details has made Amanda a huge asset to Dance Exchange this spring as we plan for local performances, and prepare for Cassie's upcoming 500-mile walk.

  • Dancer/teacher/choreographer/facilitator extraordinaire Wayles Haynes is teaching FRIDAY CLASS this month and we are thrilled to have her! Wayles' class always provides me with ample opportunity to challenge my movement patterns through exploring pathways, rhythm, and initiations, and I always enjoy the emphasis on finding efficiency and ease in the body even in complex phrase work.

  • Today, Cassie, Matthew and I dropped by Syra Uke, a group of ukulele players who meet to jam in Syracuse. I sort of thought we'd be hanging out and listening to them play. Instead, we were handed ukuleles and immediately began learning chords.

  • Dance Exchange is halfway through a 2 1/2 week residency in Syracuse, NY, creating a new performance piece with members of the Syracuse community. Students, social activists, university faculty, life-long residents and recent transplants are sharing their experiences of cultural, historical, and geographic distances both in and beyond Syracuse. I, and the other artists here from Dance Exchange, have been warmly welcomed in to this community, and are thrilled to work with a group of  participants who are part of this process to move, make art, and find the connections between disparate parts of Syracuse.
