Saturday, November 16, 2013 Having a Ball!
The New York Baroque Dance Company and modern dance company a canary torsi, directed by Yanira Castro, invite you to take hands as we gambol together through the pavan, canary, minuet and a Playford country dance. This rare opportunity for audience members to learn early ballroom dances alongside our professional dancers has become an annual event not to be missed! This year we will have the added experience of “what’s past is prologue” with a rare glimpse into the creative process of Yanira Castro, contemporary choreographer, who will talk about her focus on the canary as a catalyst for her new work, Court/Garden.
We are also delighted to have guest dancer Niel Vincent de Marino leading and calling the country dance, The Indian Queen, with music by Purcell and published by Playford.
NYBDC dancers include Matthew Buffalo, Caroline Copeland, Carly Fox, Olsi Gjeci, Amanda Salituro, Alexis Silver, Catherine Turocy and Gregory Youdan.
