Gatsby in the Square

Yesterday, the Hoover Dam Collective dancers performed in Greeley Square (at 33rd and Broadway) accompanied by pianist Alex Clough. The piano, resplendent, pink, and adorned with a gigantic floppy bow, is part of the "Play Me, I'm Yours" campaign funded by non-profit organization Sing for Hope.  Organized by Santino Lo, the HDC performed in partnership with MADart, alongside a piece choreographed by Lauren Camp.

The piece was a structured improvisation loosely set around the music, which was improvised around the theme of the "Maple Leaf Rag." We drew a good crowd, and people were whipping out their cellphones, cameras and video cameras to record the live performance. Overall it was a fantastic chance to share what we do with the public.

Dancers were: Theo Boguszewski, Katrina Cunningham, Lindsey Jones, Breegan Kearney, Francheska Lopez, Kat Rhodes, and Lucy Wilson. Special thanks goes to Rachel Pazdan for taking photos of the event, and Nicole Restani for videotaping the performance. I hope to have the video up on the blog soon. 

Also, stay tuned for a post about the July Residency show this coming Saturday night!
