Gaga. I must keep moving until the end.

June 20, 2012

It’s no doubt that this Spring semester has taken a lot out of me. We finished off our choreographic works, have performed student works and professional repertory, the highlight of which was dancing on the main stage at Suzanne Dellal. This week, I finish my studies with technical exams. But in an effort to squeeze out just a little bit more dance from this experience in Israel, I’m turning to Gaga.

We’re Dancing at Suzanne Dellal

May 28, 2012

 

 

In true Israeli fashion, I’m not sure what the full program is just yet, and how much of it I’m in, but the details will fall into place before the curtain goes up at least. I kid, I kid. I do know that the Jerusalem Academy Dance Ensemble is performing, along with some of the best student works from the Gertrud Kraus choreography competition. But please, if you’re in the Tel Aviv area, check out what the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance is up to. We’re performing at the Suzanne Dellal Center, Israel’s main stage! June 12 at 21:00.
