MBDance February 2012: Seeds of Growth

MBDance takes a Stand

This month, MBDance shakes off the cold and builds up a sweat in the continued creation of our newest piece, Stand.  Stand investigates and responds to our generation increasingly standing up to pressing issues in physically powerful ways.  We look forward to the continued growth of this piece, which will be performed by two MFA candidates from Florida State University as a capstone to their educational careers.

Feeling left out in the cold? Get in on the action with this rehearsal footage of Rachel S. Hunter & Keisha Calderon:

Two Interns Join the MBDance Mission

MBDance is proud to welcome two new members to our team. James and Charlotte share a love of contemporary dance and excitement about helping others sweat their truth.

Meet James  and Charlotte:

James Murray, new MBDance intern

James is a native New Yorker and triple threat at Long Island University! When he is not busy tending to his three majors, he can be found mastering the game of Sudoku and taking dance classes at Peridance. James is quite enthusiastic about beginning his adventures with MBDance.




Charlotte Rosen, new MBDance intern

Charlotte is a passionate dancer from New Jersey, completing her last semester at Connecticut College. Graduating this May with a BA in Dance and Psychology, Charlotte also has a fervor for West African Dance and Pilates. She is pleased to help spread the gift of concert dance with others as a member of the MBDance team.
