One Weekend, Two Presentations, Three Dates

Dear Friends!

I am having an amazing time rehearsing for Usha Gupta's dance that will premiere at the beginning of June. KHOJ is going to be pretty spectacular! I've been sitting in on rehearsals as the dramaturge for the piece.

The ensemble of dancers is really amazing. Everyone of them offers something unique and beautiful, but what is really something, is how they meld into an ensemble. This is especially obvious in a section that follows a very traditional concept, and yet it feels so contemporary. It's called BAITHOK, and is an improvisation in which the dancers play, compete and encourage each other to push their rhythmic prowess. It's similar to B-boying. The cypher, or circle, is alive with play and wildly individual dancing.

Dear Friends!

In just a couple weeks we hold our Annual Art Auction Brunch! Yes, we've gone back to our original format, because who doesn't love brunch?

Plus, we have some amazing pieces from an estate sale. Quite simply, BWDC could not accomplish our goals without the support of artists and YOU!

Toronto Dance Theatre on their 50th Anniversary Tour

Dear Friends!

We're so excited to be bringing Toronto Dance Theatre to Edmonton on their 50th Anniversary Tour. House Mix features dances created by iconic choreographer Christopher House over the last three decades.

"Christopher House explodes with movement invention! Throughout his career, he has infused each of his dances with such amazingly beautiful movement, and of course, his dancers eat it up! It makes them dance full out. I have always been so moved by each dance experience with Toronto Dance Theatre."

Warmest Regards,
Brian
