June 1st features Jacksonville Dance Theatre under the direction of Rebecca Levy with additional choreography by Tiffany Fish; June 2nd welcomes Beth Megill & Company; June 8th & 9th will include unrepeated choreography from Joelle Martinec's SoleVita Dance Company. Patrons that wish to see more than one performance will receive a discount on subsequent concerts during the two weekends of work.
Director, Nancy Evans Doede says of her fellow contributing choreographers, “Jacksonville Dance Theatre, Artistic Director Rebecca Levy was very active in the dance community in Los Angeles with B.E. Productions, a modern dance company she directed with Eryn Schon-Brunner for several years. Rebecca moved to Florida to take a dance teaching position at Florida State College, and we’re delighted to have her new company working with us in this concert. In one of their dances, our company will be joining them for a small section. We’re learning it via video, and will rehearse it with them for the first time at dress rehearsal!
Nancy continues, “June 2nd will be Beth Megill & Company and Artistic Director Beth Megill’s choreography is full of humor, invention and musicality! June 8th and 9th will be SoleVita Dance Company, Artistic Director Joelle Martinec. SoleVita performed in our Friends/Family Dance Festival last November, and we’ve asked them to join us for the second weekend of shows. They will do different pieces in each performance. Joelle’s choreography is energetic, jazzy, lyrical and fun!
Nancy adds, “There will be a solo piece that I will do as an homage to my mentor and friend, Hanya Holm. I haven’t performed in a very long time, but this seems to be the moment..”
