Festival for Choreographers with
Neil Greenberg, Susan Rethorst, John Jasperse, and Jeanine Durning
Studio Upsun* in Pennsylvania is a new initiative designed to provide opportunities to engage in in-depth investigations of choreographic practices. We have looked for rigorous and sophisticated choreographers who are also interested in teaching and its relationship to making. We have given them an entire week to work with a limited amount of students (max 14) via composition, repertory, mentoring, or any combination of practices they feel useful. It is our hope that these workshops will result in a give and take of knowledge and practice that is rigorous, personal, intense, and intensely pleasurable.
*Upsun: (noun) the period between the rising and setting of the sun.

REMINDERS AND SHOUT OUTS
ALUM OF THE WEEK
Lynn Dally is a record breaker: Artistic Director of Jazz Tap Ensemble, the longest-running tap dance company in the world; producer of this week's Women In Tap conference at UCLA - the first ever in the history of the universe; and she holds the best track record for artistic matchmaking and creative hook-ups in all 50 states.
PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO THE WOMAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN
Greetings, fine folk of our dance department. I bring you studio news!
Our studios (including Pomerene) are the proud new owners of their VERY OWN
dust mops. Taped in red, green, and yellow, each dust mop is labelled with its
appropriate studio number. If you find a mop inappropriately located, please
escort it to its proper home/studio.
After hours of tedious experimentation, Dave Covey and I have ascertained that
the new studio curtains (Studio 1 and Studio 3) like to travel in one direction only. To better help you identify which direction they prefer to travel, I have labeled each wall with the following suggestions:
"Please store curtain against this wall when it is not in use" (in green) and
"Do NOT store curtain here when not in use!" (in red).
What could be simpler?
If we all make an effort to keep the curtains stored (i.e. gathered) against their proper walls (Studio 1 against the sound cabinet, and Studio 3 behind the piano area), they will open and close quite smoothly. I have also added a tie-line rope to help you open and close the curtain. If you can't find the rope, chances are good that you're pulling from the wrong end of the curtain!
Shout outs to Vera! Yeah!
