New York-based nonprofit performing and teaching organization Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company presents Dance With Us, an educational digital platform centered around the premiere of a series of new dance films. The resource launches from June 25-27, 2021 at 7pm ET with the premieres of the films and the reveal of the platform, a website whose URL will go live at this moment. The same program will feature Daniel Gwirtzman as emcee, and will be repeated on the three successive evenings, with a special guest host each night: Dante Puleio (6/25); Tiffany Rea-Fisher (6/26); Seán Curran (6/27); and Michael Novak, Artistic Director, Paul Taylor Dance Company, who will appear each night virtually.
Following a rapid-fire pre-show of photographs – a chronological slideshow documenting the Company's twenty-three-year history – Dance With Us ignites with a festive, pride-focused ribbon-cutting ritual initiated by each evening's guest artist. The swift-moving program will take audiences on a guided tour of the new platform, the heart of which is the release of footage from the Company's acclaimed productions of Encore. A show about putting on a show, this viewing of Encore is a dynamic, accessible way to usher patrons behind-the scenes and into the center of the creative and performing processes. The platform uses dance films to illuminate and illustrate dance concepts and compositional devices.
