MBDance at American Dance Festival Winter Intensive

ADFlogo  JAN 4–Maria is thrilled to moderate a panel she put together for the ADF Winter Intensive. 

We Stand on their Shoulders: Choreographers Who Dance New York

How can we be successful choreographers in New York? What does success in that realm even look like? Jawole Zollar, Nia Love, and Arthur Aviles will share their current projects; observations about the performing arts landscape as it has and has not changed for young artists, women, and people of color; and lessons they have learned along the way.  

JAN 6 & 7–MBDance teaches contemporary classes at the ADF Winter Intensive, New York. 

MBDance classes broaden the dancers’ physical resources while remaining true to their current range and strengths– contemporary dance emphasizing powerful, spatial fluidity and floorwork. We sweat our truths, flying into the floor safely and using our hands like feet! You can watch video and learn more about the work at www.mbdance.org.

  1. MBdance is making history or rather we should say her story and I am proud to be in some small way apart of this powerful print in the sands of time!
