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.

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.

Dance Visions NY was delighted to have played a significant role in the 4th bi-ennual Isadora Duncan International Symposium. Company presentations included a fascinating panel/discussion on the future of Duncan dance with dancers Louisa Cathcart, Hope Kroog, Shannon McMullan and Cathleen Deutscher, facilitated by Beth Jucovy. Also Beth presented a workshop "Duncan Dance as Music, as Poetry" and a showing, "The Poetry of Duncan Dances" which featured excerpts of Kyra Jucovy's epic poem, "The Power and Subject," juxtaposed with diverse works of Duncan repertory. In addition Beth and Adrienne Ramm performed together again, in Adrienne's showing " Dances of Eternity" The symposium, truly international, was a fascinating and inspiring experience for all involved.
