A word from Artistic Director, Angela Harris:
Thank you for checking out our new blog! We look forward to you joining in on the fun, creativity, brainstorming, and love that our choreographers will share through their stories. Over the next few months we will introduce you to some talented new faces from our new “Drawing Board” choreographers to our 2014 DC NEXT students. We will be announcing updates on pARTy for ART 2014, as well as putting a call out for submissions for our 2014-15 Season.
We also have some exciting news that we will be sharing in a few weeks. As many of you know, January was Dance Canvas’ last show at the 14th Street Playhouse! After 6 wonderful years at our theater home, the 14th Street Playhouse was recently sold to SCAD, and will no longer be available for performances. We are in the process of selecting a new theater, and with a new theater comes new and bigger programs for Dance Canvas!
On a separate note, Dance Canvas is focused on creating and nurturing the next generation of dance artists and arts leaders. We know the importance of developing young talent “both onstage and backstage”. To kick off this blog, I am pleased to introduce you to our DC Intern, Patrice Bryant, who will be curating the blog series. Patrice is a senior dance major at Kennesaw State University, and has been interning with us since January. Patrice served as the Assistant Stage Manager for our 2014 Performance Series at the 14th Street Playhouse. Now, we have asked Patrice to create, produce and curate our new Dance Canvas blog, and be the face behind all of our social media platforms. We think she is doing a FANTASTIC job, and is a wonderful addition to the Dance Canvas team!
Have a great start to your spring! We will continue to create…make sure to follow our process!
