ALMA NYC presents "Thank You, Ten: A Decade of Soul, Spirit, and HeART"
ALMA NYC is a not for profit dance company with philanthropic initiatives driving their creative work.
Ushering in their tenth year as a company, ALMA NYC invites you to celebrate with them for Thank You, Ten: A Decade of Soul, Spirit, and HeART, opening December 3, 2021 at Paul Taylor.
Thank You, Ten will take you across the choreographic works created over the years from Yellow, which premiered at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, to runway performances from New York’s couture fashion week, and HOMAGE: An ode to jazz, an unfinished work in celebration of Ella Fitzgerald, as well as the company’s premiere of Rhapsody in Blue, an original ballet filmed in Manhattan's Lower East Side.
Sunday, December 5th, marks a return to “Connect Performances” where individuals are invited to join the cast for an on-stage movement warm-up and a short Q&A. “A company built on love” is a phrase that has long guided the work and community ALMA NYC strives to foster. The company encourages its audience to take on this same spirit of community by sponsoring a seat for individuals who lack access.
For the past ten years ALMA NYC has had their hand on the pulse of New York City, bringing dance to numerous programs and hundreds of individuals, creating original dance works spirited in collaboration, and maintaining an open-door, safe space policy for their dancers and collaborators. The company's performances range from work created for the United Nations' Sustainability Summit to international performances at Beijing's Tianqiao Theater. With buckets of tenacity, we kept moving throughout the Covid-19 global pandemic, and are beyond excited to connect with you at our first live performance.
Directed and choreographed by Zanza Steinberg with associate direction and choreography by Kaitlin Niewoehner.
Dancers include: Davonna Batt, Hannah Balagot, Olivia Barbieri, Neville Braithwaite, Jake Corcoran, Danielle Burdick, Joseph Fierberg, Zuri Foreman, Andy Frank, Courtney Murray, Kaitlin Niewoehner, Melodye Redding, Hannah Russell, Paige Sabo, Ashley Talluto, and Kateryna Tyno.
