After 23 years in New York City, German born dance artist,Isabel Gotzkowsky is going home. It is hard to say goodbye. Gotzkowsky, began her career at Dance New Amsterdam back in the day when it was called Dance Space Center (actually not so many days ago.) She did everything there. One of the first work-study students at the school, she took afternoon classes with Lynn Simonson, evening classes with Katiti King, then even more classes with Laurie DeVito, whose company she later joined. She fell in love with Simonson Jazz Technique and Pilates and got certified in both. She cut her teeth as a teacher, choreographer and producer of concerts, then created a dance company populated with artists and board members she met through her creative life in the studios and hallways of Dance New Amsterdam.
