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.

Dance Visions NY at the Isadora Duncan International Symposium

Description:

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. 


I Hear America Singing, I See America Dancing at Whitman's Birthplace

Description: 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 are 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. We are delighted to present an outdoor program, on the lawn of the Walt Whitman Birthplace.
