The School at Jacob’s Pillow
TAP

Dianne Walker, Program Director
June 28-July 11

Guest Artist Harold Cromer
Artist Faculty Derick K. Grant, Ray Hesselink, & Tasha Lawson
Music Director Paul Arslanian

Dianne Walker leads a diverse artist faculty in sharing the traditions of a variety of tap styles, from rhythm tap to musical theatre. Dancers spend in-depth time learning how to communicate effectively with musicians, develop musicality, rhythmic statements, and working as an ensemble.

Artist faculty create work on the dancers and teach the repertory standards of tap. Dancers perform these works for public July 3 and 10 on the free Inside/Out series. Daily classes concentrate on footwork techniques and use of the full body as an expressive medium. Artist faculty share their extensive knowledge of the history and evolution of tap using video clips from their own collections and the Pillow's Archives.

Attending Festival performances, talks, exhibits, master classes, and access to the Archives are part of this immersion experience in dance. Visit www.jacobspillow.org for faculty bios and program updates.

For 25 advanced pre-professional and professional tap dancers with strong performance skills, age 16 and up.

Haitian Choreographer and Family Need Housing in San Francisco
Djenane St-Juste, who is a native of Haiti and an accomplished choreographer and dancer, and friend of Dance Monks director, Mirah Moriarty, is looking for housing for the next six months, starting immediately for herself and three family members: including her mother Mambo Florencia Pierre who is a healer, renowned choreographer, dancer and co-artistic director of Institute De Danse Jaka in Haiti. Ideally, it would be a space large enough for four people (Djenane, her son, her mother and brother) and free of cost. They are currently fund-raising for money to pay for rent and food for the next months, so compensation is probable.

Please pass this information on to all of your friends and family.

Please contact Mirah directly by email if you have suggestions or further information: dance_monks@yahoo.com or 510-704-1403. Thank you!
