Hartwell Dance Theater
More About The Performance:
Choreographer Marisa f. Ballaro returns to SUNY Brockport with her NYC-based Company, Ballaro Dance, to present an evening of dance. Going FULL CIRCLE, the performance is a time capsule of the past, present, and future of Ballaro Dance.
Some of what you'll SEE on the program includes a new premiere by the Company, a dance/tech piece developed virtually during the pandemic, dance films made by longtime collaborator Zoran Prodanovic, and a dance choreographed by Marisa when she was a student at Brockport in the Dance Department 16 years ago! Joining the Company on stage are participants from the SEE MOVE SHARE Dance Intensive & Performance Project hosted by the Alumni Association on campus throughout the week. Ballaro Dance is eager to dig deep into the archives and return to the stage at Hartwell Dance Theater where it all began.
Ballaro Dance values community and collaboration at its core. Through ongoing opportunities to SEE, MOVE, & SHARE together in and through dance, the Company takes pride in cultivating an approachable, welcoming environment. Through each project and collaboration, Ballaro Dance continues to redefine how to effectively share dance through unique sensory-based experiences while inviting audience members to act as participants, generating a longer-lasting impact on community.
We dance to engage with people; we choreograph to tell stories; we produce art to build community.
