She was one of two School of American Ballet pupils featured in a lecture-demonstration presented by esteemed teacher and former New York City Ballet dancer, Suki Schorer. I was immediately struck by Peck's verve and aplomb,...

It's a moment that would be complicated in any musical: In the current Broadway revival of Spring Awakening, at the start of a song in the second act, a group of actors faces upstage, backs to the audience.

A new dance-play evokes the remarkable life of Pearl S. Buck --- Daniel Ezralow's career has gone global in recent years, so it seems appropriate that he's directing and choreographing Pearl, a "multicultural dance-play" that's inspired by the life of Pearl S.

Moses Pendelton and his vision for Momix -- Momix founder and choreographer Moses Pendleton fits the bill of a mad dance scientist: His creations are otherworldly – etched with ethereal visuals that incorporate inventive technology – and since he asks dancers to slip between classical technique and acrobatic pyrotechnics, he seems...
