Get Excited For These Livestreams!

Looking for some guilty pleasure procrastination? Dance Magazine's got you covered. We're hosting two great livestreams at the end of this week.

Thursday, April 6 at 7 PM:

First up is a two-part performance hosted by the Martha Graham Dance Company at its headquarters in New York City. Swedish choreographer/filmmaker Pontus Lidberg is working on a new dance film project, and he's tapped Kaitlyn Gilliland and Christopher Adams to perform a few excerpts from it live tomorrow night. Afterward, he'll sit down for an interview about the film and his work with MGDC artistic director Janet Eilber.

Later that same night, we'll also stream an in-studio performance of the Graham dancers in Lidberg's Woodland, the 2016 commission that first brought Lidberg and MGDC together.

Tune in to our Facebook page Thursday night to catch both parts.

Friday, April 7, All Day:

To close out the week, Ebony Williams is giving us a peek into a day in her life—in real time. The Cedar-Lake-Contemporary-Ballet-star-turned-commercial-dancer has a lot going on these days. Between dancing for Beyoncé and choreographers like Francesca Harper, Williams stays busy working on her own short dance film and shopping for fabrics as she develops EbonySkin.

Williams is also an eternal student: "Even though some younger dancers see a vision of a dancer who may have made it," she says, "it's a continuous struggle to stay in shape, do research and learn. I am always taking classes and private lessons."

All you have to do is tune in to our Facebook page on Friday as she shares the many activities that make up her day.

Interlochen’s New Breathtaking Dance Center Is Ready for Class

After months of practicing in a cramped space at home, young dancers have dreamed of training in a spacious, airy studio. And when the facilities are as resplendent as the brand-new dance center at Michigan's Interlochen Center for the Arts, everyday technique class is to be savored.

The recently renovated and vastly expanded 26,000-square-foot Dance Center at Interlochen is now a world-class facility on par with those of premier conservatories and professional companies. Joseph Morrissey, Interlochen's director of dance, says a lot of careful thought went into the architecture: "This could not just be a building that dance is going to go into. This is a building that is made for dance." To build the best facilities for his students, Morrissey sought out Flansburgh Architects, the group behind the beautiful Perles Family Studio at Jacob's Pillow.
