The Mary Sano Studio of Duncan Dancing presents the twentieth annual Dionysian Festival, celebrating the 140th anniversary of Isadora Duncan’s birth. This progenitor of modern dance was born in San Francisco on May 26, 1877. Mary Sano, one of the foremost interpreters of the Duncan legacy, will perform original Duncan repertoire to the music of Chopin and Schubert.
Both returning neo classical pianist Benjamin Akeala Belew and singer/songwriter Tony Chapman will perform their original songs as well as playing and premiering new work with Mary Sano and her Duncan Dancers.
This 8 week series of Workshops will introduce basic Duncan dance concepts and technique to students who would like to experience Duncan dance for the first time or for those looking to keep up their technique. Each week, Ms. Sano, an expert on Duncan dance and a third generation Duncan dancer will teach the essence of this tradition in a friendly and positive atmosphere at her dance studio. Bring your Duncan tunic if you have one, and if not, we’ll make one!
Workshop Dates: January 20 – March 10 (winter session), 2017
Time: Sundays @12:30-3 pm, Wed. & Fri. @ 6:30-9 pm
Fees: Once a week: $220, Drop-in:$30
