Nederlands Dans Theater Returns
A Postcard from Photographer Bill Hebert
Hello Dance Enthusiast fans,
Welcome to my first of many - I hope - guest spot photo columns for The Dance Enthusiast. The column may only showcase a handful of pictures at times or it may be a mix of images with brief dialogue. The main point is to spotlight the fabulous New York dance scene in performance or rehearsal.
For my debut column, I chose to spotlight a few pictures of the internationally renowned Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) performing in New York this past week for the first time since 2004. A very special thanks to Sharifa Ameerali, Public Relations for NDT, for helping me set things up to bring you all these images.
Here are photos from Sehnsucht with choreography by Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot.
