This Week on Artist & International Dance (7/26)24 Jul 2020, Posted by Uncategorized in
This Sunday the weekly program, Dance Diplomacy with Jonathan, continues:
A transatlantic Zoom call brings Jonathan Hollander together with Alastair Macaulay, who shares intriguing memories of his first days as Chief Dance Critic of The New York Times. Reminiscences of attending previous Battery Dance Festivals at the water’s edge downtown and at the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival reveal his voracious appetite for dance of all kinds. His return to London has enabled him to keep up with the dance world there while simultaneously hosting his own series of virtual interviews with the great ballerinas of New York. Says Hollander, “Thirty minutes pass in a flash with Alastair’s characteristic erudition and charm. One is reminded of how much we have lost when this true dance-lover returned to his first and most comfortable perch in London.” Tune into Battery Dance TV at 9am and 12 noon to hear more.
Later in the day, Amanda Treiber, principal dancer with New York Theatre Ballet and teacher at NY Theatre Ballet School will teach a Cecchetti Basics class at 2pm EDT.
At 4pm EDT, she will perform “Three Things,” a solo choreographed by Rachael Kosch with music composed by Michael Kosch.
Artist Talk: 9am & 12pm EDT
Cecchetti Basics Class: 2pm EDT
Performance by Amanda Treiber: 4pm EDT
