Mission Statement

Through programs of Isadora Duncan repertory as well as original works inspired by her principles, the company will continually develop and share concepts that Duncan discovered and accessed in her work. We will also bridge these ideas with ways of seeing the modern world. Through this means, we both preserve as well as build upon her legacy. We contribute to the appreciation, scope and relevance of Isadora’s historical art, and also demonstrate that it is a contemporary, evolving art-form.

We 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.

Interdisciplinary Movement Art for 2022

March 6, 2022, 2 p.m.

Elmont Library Theater, through the Elmont Library 700 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont, NY 11003 

Morning Afternoon Evening brings to life imagery and ideas inherent in a lyrical and symbolic poem written by the creator’s daughter, Kyra Jucovy. For this program we are adding projected still and moving imagery! With 8 Dance Visions NY company dancers and actor Tzena Nicole, this holistic work consists of poetry, dance, theater and now visual art.  It encompasses timeless and timely themes of destruction leading to creation, darkness to light, ending to beginnings. After successful runs at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, at Dixon Place Theater in NYC and outdoor programs at historical sites on Long Island, we are bringing this work live to the Elmont Library where "Evening," the film, was shown in 2020. In addition The company will also perform a segment of authentic Isadora Duncan dances, repertory which seeds the choreography of Morning Afternoon Evening, and is accompanied with live music played by pianist Leonard Lehrman. This program is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and is administered by The Huntington Arts Council, Inc.

Past Events

"Evening" (live) as part of Dixon Place's and Creative Performances'Dance Bloc festival!

Description:

"Evening" from "Morning Afternoon Evening" is a dance/theater/poetry artwork that illustrates the cyclic nature of so much of our world and has particular relevance today with its themes of destruction leading to creation, endings leading to beginnings and darkness leading to light. The work confronts global and personal trauma and shows a process of accessing the strength, resilience and engagement that potential healing requires. It is also a reaffirmation of the beauty inherent in our universe and a reminder that "the darker the night, the brighter the dawn"  Daisaku Ikeda
