Presented will be premieres of new work by guest choreographers Taylor Drury, an alumna of the Juilliard School and cast member of Sleep No More and Tisch School of the Arts graduate Rachel Hagan, artistic director of CEMA Dance. They will join Steffi Nossen School of Dance faculty choreographer/teachers Annie Doss and Fatima Logan who are creating new work on the school’s Master Classes. Producer Gierre Godley, artistic director of Project 44 will create a solo for Chappaqua high school senior and Steffi Nossen Dance Company President Allison Dammann. The Company will also perform Mt. Kisco native and Steffi Nossen alumna Jessica DiMauro’s “a través de sus ojos”. The Friday and Saturday concerts will feature a special performance by Verlezza Dance, a company of professional dancers of various abilities, rooted in the classical modern dance traditions of the May O’Donnell technique that explores individuals’ creative potential regardless of what is traditionally perceived as limitations.
Show producer Gierre Godley says of the Steffi Nossen School of Dance, “Now in its 78th year we happily preserve and celebrate the diverse legacy of the Steffi Nossen School of Dance. While honoring the remarkable Nancy Lushington, artistic director of SNDF for 19 years, we are excited to connect our dancers and audience to new artistic voices.”
