    New Voices Launches Dance Now Miami’s 19th Season in Miami Beach and Kendall 12/1/18

    New Voices Launches Dance Now Miami’s 19th Season in Miami Beach and Kendall

    South Florida’s leading contemporary dance ensemble, Dance NOW! Miami, entering its 19th year, is expanding its footprint with its “New Voices” initiative by commissioning a work from Jamaica-born and Miami-raised choreographer Christopher Rudd. The world premiere of his work, sponsored by Miami Salon Group and Citizens Interested in Arts, will be featured in the company’s first major program of the season, on Saturday, December 1, at Miami Beach’s Colony Theatre, with an encore presentation on Sunday, December 9, at the Alper JCC in Kendall.

    The program also includes a revival of Dance NOW Artistic Directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten’s “Random Patterns of Falling Leaves”, Salterini’s “Melody in Four Parts: Just Traveling”, and the world premiere of Baumgarten’s “Grace.”

    “Chris is a perfect fit for Dance Now’s Florida-rooted but international-in-scope approach to today’s dance world,” says Baumgarten. “We are excited about his work, which melds multicultural influences with his own signature style, created specifically for our company’s dancers.” Mr. Rudd’s choreography draws on contemporary ballet, modern dance, and aerial approaches. He trained at the Thomas Armour Youth Ballet and is a graduate of Miami’s own New World School of the Arts. He has gone on to perform with and choreographed for many leading groups, including Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal, the Elizabeth Streb company, and Cirque du Soleil, and is the director his New York-based ensemble, RudduR Dance.

    “Random Patterns of Falling Leaves” is Salterini and Baumgarten’s critically acclaimed homage to autumn, its revival timed for the ending of fall with its early December dates. Salterini’s “Melody in Four Parts: Just Traveling” is a metaphysical journey from birth to death and the beyond, created after the passing of his mother, with an original score by Ohio composer Jenny Bernard Merkowitz and text from Seattle-based poet Janée Baugher. The world premiere of “Grace,” choreographed by Baumgarten, will tell the story of her Biblical namesake Hannah, bringing a Jewish and female perspective to the performance.

    Tickets for the Saturday, December 1 Colony Theatre evening are $35 general admission, and $15 students (at the box office in-person only). Regular price tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.dancenowmiami.org and in-person for all tickets at the theater box office, 1040 Lincoln Road, in Miami Beach.

    Cady dazzles his audience with his ability to go from the jazz stylings of Eddie Jefferson to lead singer in Teddy Harris Jr’s Bebop Society Jazz Orchestra. Just when you think you’ve heard it all, he pulls out songs from R&B greats. He makes each song his own. His venues have ranged from small clubs to concert halls to major jazz festivals. He has performed in cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, and Miami. He’s performed with noted musicians such as Marcus Belgraves, Harold McKinney, Rudy Robinson, Marion Haden, and more.

    When Michael hits the stage, he exudes confidence. This was instilled in him by his mother, the late, great Susie Garrett, an actress/singer. His stage performances include “Great Legends and Great Music” a DeeDee McNeil production directed by Ron Milner. His most recent project was “A Tribute to Horace Silver” for which he received an overwhelming response from Metro Times.

    Arts Garage is located at 94 NE 2nd Ave in Delray Beach. Tickets are $35-$40-$45 at artsgarage.org or 561-450-6357. BRING YOUR OWN … WHATEVER!

    Reiki . Sound Bath . Andara Crystal Healing . Breathwork . Aromatherapy

    Join Francine for this monthly reset and healing event happening the last weekend of every month. Each month Francine collaborates with different healers and/or doctors to create a safe space for men and women to treat themselves to a deep and relaxing (read: mostly passive) self-care session for 2 hours. The combination of several therapeutic modalities — including breathwork, crystal sound bowls, aromatherapy, guided meditation, Andara crystal healing and Reiki energy work — open up the body, clear the mind, neutralize the emotions, and balances your energy so as to alchemize anything you’re ready to let go of — old stories, limiting thoughts, emotional traumas, physical pain– into energy that is restorative, refreshing and uplifting.

    This month she is joined by natural born healer, Medium, and Reiki Master Teacher Donna Freeman, of Spirit & Beyond. Together the two will lead a journey through opening and clearing each of the major chakras using breathwork, aromatherapy, and a guided Andara Crystals* meditation, followed by a deep receiving of a Reiki energy cleanse paired with a crystal and quartz bowl sound bath.
