Happy New Year, Tulsa! Delighted to be back in blogging action here.
I’m thrilled to welcome in the new year with a couple of happy announcements. First and most important, tonight begins a three-night series of workshops in the GaGa technique created by Ohad Naharin of the Batsheva Dance Company, which wowed Tulsa audiences with its performance here last spring. The master classes the company offered that week were mindblowing for me and all those who attended. Through a web of beautiful connections, Tulsa Modern Movement, which I co-direct, was put in contact with Texas-based GaGa teacher Amy Morrow, who offered to share some classes with our community. TuMM is proud and excited to share this opportunity with you.
Below is the Facebook event page. Tonight and Friday at 6pm, Amy will offer GaGa/Dancers, for dancers 16+. Tomorrow, January 3, at 6:30pm, anyone and everyone 16+ is invited to GaGa/People. All classes are $10 and take place at the Kendall Hall black box theater at the University of Tulsa.
The second announcement is that yours truly has been included as one of Tulsa’s “Hot 100” people in Urban Tulsa Weekly … oh my. When a dance writer can be considered a hot cultural item, well, that’s just pretty wonderful all around. Thanks, everybody.
