Weekly Announcement – Janaury 25 to January 31


This Week: New NDEO Student Chapter at Rutgers, Crew Request Forms, BFA Opportunities, Professional Opportunities, and Special Events.


Your help is needed to start a National Dance Education Organization Student Chapter at Rutgers in Spring 15’!

The aim is to fully initiate a graduate student chapter during Fall 2015. In order to start this process, this semester we need 10 students to commit to the development of the chapter and become the founding members!

Rutgers requires a Constitution (which has been developed) along with a mission statement (which is in the process of being drafted). By submitting all of this, we can be recognized as an active GSO (Graduate Student Organization) through the GSA (Graduate Student Association). By becoming affiliated, we receive funding for the annual fee NDEO requires, funding for other opportunities, space to hold meetings and workshops/events, etc. The benefits are endless, but first we need YOU! During our first meeting we will further develop a mission statement and any other documentation required by the GSA and NDEO.

If you are interested in participating or want more information about the process, please email Gabriella Meiterman-Rodriguez at gmeiterman@aol.com with your name, current standing in the Ed.M program, and any other questions you may have. To get the ball rolling, she will send a doodle calendar to determine the availability of the majority interested in holding an informational session during the first week of school!

For information on NDEO, visit http://www.ndeo.org


Please note that crew request forms are due this coming Thursday, January 29th by 5 pm.  Information for all crew assignments with dates and times are posted on the production board.  Please leave your form in the bin by my office in the Mortensen suite.  Please fill out all the info on the form including email and phone.  Let me know if you have any questions.

See the premiere of Broken Story (wherein there is no ecstasy). Four composers, four dancers, four musicians, and a choreographer come together in this work commissioned by Works & Process. Composer David Lang, in collaboration with choreographer Pam Tanowitz, invited three composers who had never written for dance before, Ted Hearne, Hannah Lash, and Caroline Shaw to create new works. Tanowitz intertwines these four new scores, which will be played live by the FLUX Quartet, with choreography performed by dancers Maggie Cloud, Dylan Crossman, Stuart Singer, and Melissa Toogood.
For the 3 pm performance enter via the ramp at 88th Street and 5th Avenue; no reception for this performance.
