Dear Dance Place,
Thank you for a wonderful residency! From the most fabulous director (Carla Perlo) to the newest intern, each person we interacted with was smart, hard working and a lover of dance and performance. We were able to create a work that was made for your beautiful theater with guidance and support of Ben Levine and the hard working crew.
We had the great opportunity to work with local dance artists that not only made a beautiful work of their own (in the lobby before the show) but provided a collaborative laboratory for us to workshop our material in preparation for the performance. Thank you Don Andress, Chelsea Boyd Brown, Lynne Price, Jayna Resman, Katie Sopoci Drake, and Ginger Wagg.
We also worked with the Dance Exchange to offer a workshop on Saturday that was packed with almost 30 eager participants. Thank you to Matthew Cumbie for making this happen. It was great to see familiar faces and new ones alike.
All and all it was a great week with great people and great work.
Chris and Angie
