by ashleyandersondances

New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to read this 2010 wrap-up of all SLC Dance.

In addition to writing about the new space near Capitol Theatre & the accolades of large companies Ririe-Woodbury, Ballet West & RDT, Kathy & Celia also write about developments at the U and loveDANCEmore’s peformance journal, online blog & Mudson performance series for works in progress.

Thank you for including us in the category of building dance muscle!

dance & more, a new event

by ashleyandersondances

Juan Aldape just sent a forward with the link to a new event he’s part of in SLC called 5 Days New Artistic Experiment.

Their event page says…..

Like the 48hr film festival, only with several kinds of mediums. We will have illustration, photography, poetry, dance, and music. The catch is that ALL of it must be created in the first 5 days of the new year. Everyone has 15 minutes.

projects near and far

by ashleyandersondances

below find tons of links to 2011 dance calendars showing a dance metropolis the western united states appears to be.
and remember if you have events to add to the calendar we’ve listed for winter/spring 2011 let us know.
that way we can make sure they get reviewed on the blog in some capacity or another.

the link below announces the REDCAT line-up in LA. Dance events are at the bottom and include another iteration of the AWARD show (wait til March to read a couple of Manifestos about that concept), Eiko & Koma (who I think are in SLC this summer?), Meg Wolfe and more….

also in LA you can follow pieterperformanceartspaceDANCE their events calendar is on the link below and what’s amazing is they only accept non-monetary donations to their free bar, free boutique or the studio (i.e. trash bags and toilet paper).

also also in LA you can check out more low-tech events called Anatomy Riot

While there are no projects listed on the site below I know that a new space is currently being located by the awesome people of the Denver based Control Group Productions. Patrick Mueller and friends were amazing when hosting an SLC tour and bookmark this website for 2011 when more inevitably awesome events ensue.

some links

by ashleyandersondances

So the LA Times does all these big 2010 year-end review articles. And I was really excited to see what was written about dance but oops. There were two about pop music, two about classical music, several about visual art, the list goes on, but no dance. Dance did however get mentioned in the theater bits because of Natalie Portman in Black Swan and how admirable they find her acting as a dancer. It wasn’t only listed in that article but then in another highlighting other, more under-rated dance flicks, including Showgirls.

Both articles linked below.,0,4197887.story

Also below is a article from the NYTimes about performances at MOMA.

as much as i hate doing this…

by ashleyandersondances

I am about to post another article about the Nutcracker. By the continuously despicable Alistair Macaulay.

However….he says nice things about kids from good old SLC like Satchell & Juliette who are apparently amazing as Clara and Fritz. According to Alistair (aka the Grinch) the kids here are some of the best of the billions of kids dancing with trumpets all across this great nation. He doesn’t even insult their weight like he does the adults in New York! That’s worth posting right?

In any case there is nothing else as the LATimes has a bunch of reviews of the Grinch Musical & all the local company seasons have ended for now & even the Tribune has resorted to posting the love story of two Ballet West company members.
