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.

Israeli College Student Day 2012

June 4, 2012

Something I’ve really come to appreciate about the Jewish cultural Middle East is their celebration of a generous amount of holidays. Many of the ones that stop the city of Jerusalem in its tracks are described in sacred texts. Others, like Yom HaStudent (יום הסטודנט), or Israeli College Student Day, are simply widely observed mental health days.

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.

list-o-mania

May 11, 2012

 

The practice of list making makes me feel organized, yet a little crazy. Some might consider it a form of procrastination in itself, but I honestly don’t think that the busy month of May could at all be manageable if I didn’t write it all down on paper to see in front of me.

Without boring you all with the details, I am currently concerned with the following:

  • writing professional and personal emails
  • returning to a normal, busy dance class schedule
  • reviewing choreography for the Ensemble, finals, and student choreography
  • organizing the programs for Visiting Voices
  • ironing out the details for some small trips to Tel Aviv
  • attending interview this week for a potential short internship
  • planning my last rehearsal before Visiting Voices
  • searching for a good dance party to celebrate Kyle’s birthday
  • keeping myself well fed, well rested, and well hydrated
  • oh, and doing my homework

I would also like to blog more because there are so many amazing things to talk about. In short, this is an amazingly trying time because I really only have a month and a half left here. Though I’m very much looking forward to return, there are no words to describe how much I’ll miss Israel. But I’ll save the mushy, more poetic stuff for later posts.

As for now, I have a long list of things to do tonight and tomorrow if I want to get next week started right. Shabbat Shalom, everyone!

Visiting Voices

April 19, 2012

Choreography has been on my mind like crazy lately. Details in another post to come soon. I’m quite looking forward to presenting my work in two shows next month, including Visiting Voices, the collaborative show among the Rothberg International School arts programs, Art JerusalemJerusalem Sounds, and Dance Jerusalem, produced by Kyle Georgina Marsh.
