Every Little Movement Academy of the Arts (ELMAA) creates an exciting evening of dance to benefit the Hoboken Shelter. The program features performances by students ages 3-13 as well as professional guest artists. Don’t miss your opportunity to enjoy an evening of dance and make your contribution to the Hoboken community. Join us on June 13th at 6:30PM at the Debaum Auditorium 24 5th Street in Hoboken, NJ.
Founded in 2006 by professional dancer Francesca Todesco, Every Little Movement is a school of dance dedicated to teaching children and adults American Modern Dance. This year, Ms. Todesco’s students perform repertory works by Isadora Duncan, the mother of modern dance, including Dances of the Furies. Original works by Ms. Todesco showcase her students’ ability to express emotion through creative movement.
Dance of the Furies, by Isadora Duncan, features both ELMAA’s students and the guest artists. Dancing side by side these professional dancers, gives Ms. Todesco’s students an immeasurable experience which adds to their development as performers. For the audience, the dance offers a glimpse into the primeval world of Greek mythology.
Joining the student performers will be guest artists from New York City. Thoughts in Motion Modern Dance Company will premiere a new work by artistic director, Rae Ballard, whose choreography the Village Voice described as a “dance-theater style which rests on the bedrock of Hymphrey-Limon-Sokolow aesthetics”. Featured works by Catherine Gallant, Alexandra Pfister and Gisele Assi round out this varied and exciting program.
