In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Steffi Nossen School of Dance, Steffi Nossen Dance Foundation will present an expanded program of works by emerging and established choreographers. This annual “Choreography Showcase” on December 3 will take place at Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck. The program includes Sabatino Verlezza, whose sharp, crisp movements will be danced by members of Rioult Dance NY; DiMauro Dance, which will perform two works by its founder, Steffi Nossen’s Artistic Director Jessica DiMauro Marks; and the all-male company PROJECT 44, which will present the raw athleticism of Gierre Godley’s work. The event also includes Tracie Stanfield’s SynthesisDANCE, Dani Cole, and Erin Dillon & Dancers. Two pre-professional companies will perform as well: Steffi Nossen Dance Company will showcase the work of Annie Doss and premiere a new work by Matthew James, and Paul Taylor Teen Ensemble will dance Taylor’s iconic Airs. The afternoon will conclude with a post-performance Q&A between the choreographers, dancers and audience. For more info, visit: steffinossen.org.
