MBDance: Traveling, Young Dancers, & the NY Times

MBDance is hitting the road!

September 19-October 7, 2011: Teaching Residency with the Florida State University Dance Department

November 3-5, 2011: MBDance shares the stage at Dogtown Dance Theater in Richmond, VA, as guests of  Ground Zero Dance Company. We will perform 50 Ways to Say…, Women I Know, and Concerning Proximity.

Did you see the review in the
New York Times?

MBDance was part of E-Moves, a New York showcase of Emerging & Established choreographers of color. After that concert at Harlem Stage, Claudia LaRocco considered the work. While Maria Bauman has been written about as a performer, this is the first Times mention of her choreography! Read the review. Kudos to the dancers, Kendra Ross & Maresa D’Amore-Morrison!

Young Dancers Try On MBDance Repertory!

Dancewave students perform an excerpt from the MBDance work rejecting gender stereotypes, "Women I Know."

This summer, MBDance was tapped to teach Technique & Repertory for Dancewave’s Summer Dance Intensive in Brooklyn, NY. Our discussions and their interaction with the topics of gender roles, individuality, and media messages were quite invested and inspiring. It was great to delve into that material with teenagers!
