  • If the post on Stephanie Miracle's work Recollecting Disappearing did not get you completely jazzed for lost, left, found & borrowed this weekend at Roundhouse Theatre Silver Spring, I present to you two more profiles of pieces in the concert: When Mind Moves Memory by Shula Strassfeld and Keith Thompson, and Companion Dances by Martha Wittman.

  • Dance Exchange Artistic Director Cassie Meador will be teaching both our Over 50 Class on Mondays, and our FRIDAY CLASS for the month of January. We jokingly call the way Cassie moves "Meador Technique", and although I'm not in favor of creating another codified technique, I can say that my dancing changed drastically when I began working with her. On first glance, her movement seems to be about sequencing through the body, quick rhythmic changes, and finding weight in the pelvis. The way these qualities manifest into movement is interesting,  but in Cassie's phrasework, its the relationship between these three things that is most exciting, and most challenging.

    A month of Meador.

  • This week, we're featuring q & a's with a few of the choreographers with work in lost, left, found & borrowed, happening this weekend at Roundhouse Theatre Silver Spring. First up is Stephanie Miracle, one of my dance role models for the generosity and joy she brings to dancing, making work, and teaching. We're lucky to have her in DC!

  • I woke up this morning with the strong sense that this week is going to be a great one: snow flurries in the forecast, the start of 30 Rock's season on NBC, Dance Exchange's show at Roundhouse  Silver Spring this weekend, and...the return of FRIDAY CLASS at a new and improved time!
