Teacher Training Testimonials
“Lori Belilove trains beautiful Duncan dancers—any dancer serious about teaching and performing Isadora Duncan’s works should consider this certification program. My training under Lori’s mentorship has led me to teaching in a range of contexts, including private studios, festival workshops, and university residencies. As a performance coach, Lori is detailed and exacting, facilitating dancers’ discovery of nuance in musicality and qualities of weight, and encouraging dancers to experience freedom within the sculptural form of Duncan’s dances.”
— Meg Brooker, MFA, is Assistant Professor & Director of Dance at Middle Tennessee State University and Artistic Director of Duncan Dance South, a founding organizer of Isadora Duncan International Symposium, and a former company dancer with Lori Belilove & Company. She holds an Advanced Certification in Duncan Technique and Repertory, under the mentorship of Lori Belilove.
 
“Prior to this experience I only knew about Isadora in the context of a dance history lesson, and the process of not only uncovering this rich history but seeing it and feeling it fully alive and breathing in today’s world has been immensely rewarding. Belilove is a masterful educator and brings incredible knowledge and sensitivity to her classes. Her approach to Duncan is inquisitive and inviting, and the total experience has reaffirmed for me that both movement and education flourish in a joyous, creative setting.”
– Becky Allen, MFA, MA in Dance Education, is a company dancer with Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company and works for The Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation, managing Educational Programming in addition to assisting and teaching Duncan dance classes. She is also a Teaching Artist with New York City Ballet and founder of LatticeWorks Dance Collective.

Dear Dance History Teachers Discussion Group,
 
The DHTDG will be meeting at the upcoming Dance Studies Association annual meeting in Evanston, IL.  I’m looking forward to seeing you all and meeting new faces as well.  Here are the details:
 
Date and Time: Thurs, August 8, 2-4 pm
Location: Orrington Hotel, Wheeler Room, 9th floor
 
If you have any topics you are interested in discussing, please send them to the group.  Even if you are unable to attend, please send any questions or thoughts you may have.    
 
Here are some topics I have in mind:
-If only one semester of Dance History is offered at a school, what topics are essential?
-Dance departments are attempting to diversify in many ways.  How can we teach dance history in a more inclusive way?
-Textbook/reading options
-Methods (or specific activities) to incorporate movement into lecture-style classes
 
All Best,
Katy

Thursday, October 10th

7PM: Ceremony & Gala Performance

8:30PM: Buffet Dinner & Party

THE 2019 DUMBO DANCE FESTIVAL will kick off with WHITE WAVE’s Opening Night GALA Celebration. The evening will be hosted by a guest celebrity (TBA). We have selected two of our most distinguished supporters to honor the great impact they have had in furthering our mission this year. Their opening remarks will be followed by seven stunning contemporary dance troupes: Alessandra Corona Performing Works, Company | E, Patrick O’Brien Dance Project, Thryn Saxon and Brad Beakes, Buglisi Dance Theater, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company.

Afterwards, the audience will enjoy a reception with a buffet dinner of exotic Korean cuisine and a fabulous raffle (including gourmet wine baskets, “dinner for two” at local DUMBO eateries and much more)!

Tickets are $100 and $250 (VIP seating) per person; all proceeds raised will directly offset WHITE WAVE’s production costs for our 2019/20 Season.
