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.
Dance Visions NY is delighted to be part of the KoDaFe festival 2018, held at Ailey citigroup Theater. We will be presenting a suite of Isadora Duncan solos to music of Chopin, Schubert and Brahms along with other companies in exciting and unique works with the theme of The Poetic Spirit. The poet "has the power to 're tune' and reconnect a discordant, divided world." With dancers Louisa Cathcart, Vanessa Ferranti, Hope Kroog, I-Nam Jiemvitayanukoon and Beth Jucovy. https://www.ikadadance.comTicket Info

Description: We produced our first NYC season! at University Settlement Dec. 4-17, 2017. Highlights of this program include rarely-seen dances of Isadora Duncan's that are particularly relevant in today's political climate. Furthermore, we will be performing works that highlight Duncan's strong affinity and respect for nature and her philosophy of humanism and hope, also so relevant in our current times.. The concert will also feature artistic director Beth Jucovy's original works that are propelled by Duncan principles including Through the Portals, Blurred Boundaries and other of her major works created over the past decade.
Our work, Blurred Boundaries was selected to be part of the Sans Limites Festival this year, in the company of several other unique works by emerging and established choreographers. This work explores responses to death and the concept of alternate, intersecting universes. It is dedicated to the eternity of Theda and Len Detlor, to Johnny Cathcart and all those who have passed too early from our realm, and all those they left behind.
We will present inspiring and rejuvenating dances from our repertory in celebration of the Spring season, a time of hope and renewal. Repertory includes dances of Isadora Duncan and original works of Beth Jucovy at the newly renovated, fully equipped theater of North ShoreTowers.
Highlights of this culminating program of our Summer series included Isadora Duncan masterpieces that celebrate the resiliency and triumph of the human spirit: the company's acclaimed staging of Duncan's "Russian Workers Songs" and the heroic Allegro Molto Vivace section of the Tchaikovsky Symphony "Pathetique." In addition Duncan's Chopin dances celebrating nature, favorites from Gluck repertory with themes of Greek mythology and Beth Jucovy's original work, "Rejuvenation" were featured. These dances were presented outdoors in the natural setting of the UUCSR beautiful estate. Hosted by actress Shirley Romaine with live music. . This project was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Huntington Arts Council.
