Mission Statement

Dance Visions NY's mission is to enable audiences to experience an emotional, spiritual and intellectual connection to the world of dance and to inspire audiences to engage with the challenges we face in today's world. Through the Isadora Duncan aesthetic and original works inspired by the principles, the company will continually explore and express our shared humanity. This includes timeless themes as well as the experience and perspectives of our current times. We hope to illuminate the connection between past and current issues. We build and educate dance audiences and contribute to the appreciation, scope and depth of the art both locally and beyond.

We hope to expose people to the joy, scope, and richness of dance as a vital and living art. Through presenting the authentic Duncan works as passed on by Duncan mentors Anna Duncan, Julia Levien and Hortense Kooloris, we preserve and give life to Duncan's artistic visions, technique and repertory. Dance Visions NY aspires to continue the Duncan artistic legacy by presenting the original Duncan Dances as well as new dance creations that take on a different form in the modern world.

I Hear America Singing, I See America Dancing, in Long Beach

Description: 2019 is the 200th birthday anniversary of poet Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819) and we celebrate his legacy with an Isadora Duncan dance program in his honor: I Hear America singing, I See America Dancing. 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 are illustrated by complementary Duncan dances. Pianist Mark Fiedler will play many of these works live, to the music of Chopin, Brahms, Gluck, Strauss, Schubert and we are excited to have revived "Labor/Famine" created by Irma Duncan to the music of Micheal Sheyne. To learn more about Whitman, Duncan and their connection as well as about this program, see this article in the French publication, IdEas, by Adeline Chevrier-Bosseau. 

Fast Forward at Dixon place

Description: We are delighted to be part of a  shared evening program along with Double Take Dance for Fast Forward at Dixon Place. We are presenting Earth Trilogy, a three-part work. The first section includes Isadora Duncan dance solos that celebrate the wonders of our natural world. The second section, Delicate Web, created in collaboration with the performers, depicts how we, humankind, in our self-absorption, have destroyed the precious natural world that we have taken for granted. It alludes to the present-day issues that will challenge us even more drastically in the future…. unless we take extremely dramatic action.  The 3rd section, Hymn, is a prayer for the  Earth.  Hymn is in juxtaposition with, and serves as an aftermath for, Delicate Web. Program includes Tzena as poetry reader, Willow Interfaith Women's Choir, and our ten dancer/collaborators.
