Dance Visions was founded by Beth Jucovy in 1990. Devoted to keeping the Isadora Duncan dances and aesthetic alive and current, the company also presents unique, original works which express our shared humanity in our current times. Often works are site-specific or tailored for particular venues or audiences. We bring pure dance works, dance/theater works and narrated, educational programs to local and wider audiences.

I Hear America Singing, I See America Dancing at the Amsterdam

June 9, 2019, 3 p.m.

The Amsterdam at Harborside,  300 E Overlook, Port Washington, NY 11050

On this 200th birthday anniversary of poet Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819) and Isadora Duncan's 141st birthday, (May 27 1878), we celebrate the  legacy of these two pivotal artists. Isadora Duncan was greatly influenced by Whitman, calling him her spiritual teacher. We will pay tribute to these two kindred spirits through word, dance and music.  Excerpts of  poems by Whitman will be illustrated by authentic Duncan dances presented by Dance Visions, NY, under the direction of Beth Jucovy. Duncan dance pianist Mark Fiedler will play many of these works live, to the music of Chopin, Brahms, Gluck, Strauss, Schubert and we are excited to be reviving a work to the music of Micheal Sheyne. This program will also pay tribute to longtime company collaborator and friend, the late Shirley Romaine, and will include recordings of her readings for sections of the program.

Earth Trilogy for Take Root at Greenspace

Description:

Earth Trilogy will premiere at Take Root at Greenspace. The 30 minute work explores the human impact upon the natural world in three sections. The first is based on Isadora Duncan dances that have rhythms and properties of our natural environment at their core, dances that celebrate the wonders of water, earth and air. The second section depicts how humankind might have destroyed the precious natural world that we as a species have taken for granted. Surreptitiously, our own waste products, a product of our self-indulgence and self-centeredness, destroy us. The final section—with a special musical appearance by the women’s choir Willow—is a statement of possibility, a hymn embodied in music and movement to honor our earth. Tickets available NOW. Friday evening performance

Saturday evening performance (with special appearance by Willow Women's Choir)
