Thursday, March 7 (6pm)
Exploring the importance of dance, community, choreography and dance pedagogy, Argentinean choreographer Anabella Lenzu celebrates 23 years of teaching dance in a book of her writings in Spanish and English. Having opened her own dance school at 18, Lenzu recounts her experiences teaching in South America, Europe, and the US, as well as publishing an arts magazine and creating repertory for her dance company. Lenzu's eloquent prose reveals reflections of a life devoted to dance performance and education. Photography by Todd Carroll fully documents the performances and provides a glimpse into the creative process. This book is an inspiration to dancers and teachers alike, and the first of its kind as a bilingual text on dance pedagogy. Set for international release in March 2013.The program will feature a reading, dance performance and photography by Todd Carroll. Refreshments will be served.
