Join us for Steffi Nossen Dance Foundation Choreography Showcase on Sunday, November 24th at 4:00 PM at the Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck. We bring together notable professional choreographers from across the region along with area pre-professional dancers in a performance highlighting new work in a variety of styles and representing a variety of cultures. The post-performance Q&A is a unique opportunity for both audience members and choreographers to gain insight into the choreographic process and feedback from audience members providing vital information.
North Salem Choreographer and dance educator Jessica DiMauro Marks, Artistic Director of the Steffi Nossen Dance Foundation, is the showcase producer; she will also premiere a new solo performed by DiMauro Dance Company member Crystal Rodriquez with live accompaniment by violinist Jason Boada. A Mount Kisco native and Steffi Nossen alumna and faculty member, Ms. Marks’ work has been shown at venues throughout the area. Her company, DiMauro Dance has been selected to perform at numerous festivals and curated showcases including White Wave’s COOL NY Dance Festival, and The HATCH
Also representing Westchester are Ardsley choreographer Barbara Angeline, Founder and Artistic Director of Hysterika Jazz Dance, a company that expands the legacy of jazz dance as a meaningful, historical, African American art form and SUNY Purchase faculty member Sue Bernhard.
The Steffi Nossen Dance Foundation has commissioned Dani Cole to choreograph a new work to be premiered by its pre-professional dance company. The Company will also perform an excerpt from Michael Foley’s ‘Telllin It Like It T’is’; also a Foundation commission it is set to Otis Redding’s “RESPECT” sung by Aretha Franklin. They will be joined by the Paul Taylor Teen Ensemble who will perform a Paul Taylor work.
Also on the program will be Ishita Mili’s dance company IMGE, presenting work inspired by Indian classical dance vocabulary and urban dance concepts and work by choreographers Mitzi Adams, Teresa Fellion, and Francisco Graciano.
Ms. DiMauro will wrap up the program with an always lively Q&A with choreographers, dancers and audience members exchanging views and questions.
