A Quote from Donald McKayle about Dance Week.
"The Bay Area celebration of National Dance Week is a joyous and
absorbing
kaleidoscope of dance events for dance practitioners and dance lovers
alike. The panoply of activities is wonderfully diverse and will take
you
from observation to participation. It fully reflects the vibrant
cultural
richness of the area. This year the range of over 250 offerings is
particularly felicitous representing genres of concert dance, world
dance,
vernacular dance, and site specific performance, classes, lecture
demonstrations, and workshops that will intrigue all ages and levels of
experience."

"As someone who has spent a lifetime pursuing this vivacious muse, I
look
forward with delight to these ten days that celebrate the human body in
its
articulate language of dance and to the communion of all who
participate."

Donald McKayle

Free Dance Concerts
Celebrate National Dance Week

Who: Moving Arts Dance
and guest performers:
Mark Foehringer Project
Capacitor Dance Troupe

What: Free Dance Concerts

When: Saturday April 26, 2003

Where: SOLAD Dance Center
2260 Oak Grove Rd.
Citrus Marketplace
Walnut Creek

Time: 4: 00 p.m. and 7:00 pm

Cost: Free
Donations Appreciated

Call: (925) 938-3390 for more info

Why: Spotlight National Dance Week
April 25 through May 4


To celebrate National Dance Week, SOLAD Dance Center in Walnut Creek will
present two free public performances of contemporary dance by its resident
company, Moving Arts Dance, as well as performances by guest companies, The
Mark Foehringer Project and Capacitor Dance Troupe, both based in San
Francisco.

The performances will be held on Saturday, April 26th at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm
at SOLAD Dance Center located in the Citrus Marketplace, 2260 Oak Grove,
Walnut Creek. There is no charge for admission. However, donations are
gratefully accepted.

In a world premiere, Moving Arts Dance will perform a duet called From
Heaven to Earth, choreographed by the company's Founder and Artistic
Director Anandha Ray. The piece depicts the story of a widow on earth being
comforted by her husband in heaven. While current world events offer
inspiration for such a work, Ray actually created the dance as a memorial to
her cousin, who recently died in a plane crash.

The company will also perform "Babae" (Tagalog for Woman) by guest
choreographer Grethel Domingo of Diablo Ballet. The piece is a fiery and
dramatic tribute to women as life's survivors.

Several pieces will make their world premieres before they are taken to
national and international stages later this year. "Old Records" is
choreographed by Viktor Kabaniev, Diablo Ballet principal dancer. An
excerpt features Ray, whom Kabaniev coaxed out of dancing retirement. She
performs to "Amazing Grace", one of Ray's favorite old records. Another
world premiere piece is "Upstream", by Moving Arts Dance Resident
Choreographer Michael Lowe, a veteran of the Oakland Ballet. The duet,
influenced by Lowe's Chinese heritage, depicts the yin yang dynamics of
masculinity and femininity.

Following the concerts, Moving Arts Dance will take its production on the
road to perform in the 22nd International Choreographers Showcase at the
Kentucky Center for the Arts, in Louisville later this month.

Moving Arts Dance is a modern dance company and non profit organization
founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Anandha Ray. The company recently hired
dancers Barbara Guisti, who has relocated from Italy, Bay Area treasures Tina
Bohnstedt, Michael Lowe, Erin Yarbrough and newcomer Amy De Long. The
concerts will also feature veteran company dancers Devon LaRussa, Holly
Morrow, Linda Phipps and Denise Thomas.

Opened in January 2003, SOLAD Dance Center is the East Bay's newest dance
studio with a large studio that transforms into a 100-seat black box theater.
"We serve dancers of all kinds, working professionals looking to augment
their work out, former dancers who want to stay active, and people who love
dance and want to learn," said Ray. "SOLAD is the place that nurtures the
dancer within each individual."

SOLAD offers various classes to the public in ballet, ballroom, belly dance,
hip hop and modern dance. The Center also provides dance training for
athletes, Pilates, yoga conditioning and classes in movement for actors. "SOLAD's goal is to offer regular public concerts and create a community asset," says Ray. "We want to share our love for dance in the hope that others will learn to love it as well."

39 South Bay troupes to perform for free during dance week
By Anita Amirrezvani
Mercury News

Few people would guess that the South Bay is becoming a hotbed of dance, Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley's fiscal problems notwithstanding.

This is the first year that the South Bay is participating in National Dance Week, founded in 1981 to raise awareness of the art form. When the organizers of South Bay Celebrates National Dance Week put out the call several months ago for groups to offer free events, some 39 from San Jose to Palo Alto signed up.
