Danspace Project

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance presents rose walk green ice at Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street, NYC from December 7-9, 2017 at 8pm. rose walk green ice is presented as part of Danspace Project's Community ACCESS series, which provides subsidized off-season rental opportunities for Danspace Project community members.

The World Premiere of rose walk green ice is the culmination of work begun with Home and Agawam that explores self-awareness within communal bonds. By varying spatial orientation to the audience, utilizing various groupings, and highlighting key moments from previous pieces in the trilogy, audiences are offered multiple perspectives of each character, from a variety of angles. Through these perspectives, the audience is offered notions of familial bonding and identity formation, in the hopes that each audience member becomes more aware and appreciative of the complete self and of those around them.

Tickets are $22 in advance ($25 at the door) and are available at, or by calling TheaterMania/OvationTix at (866) 811-4111.

Tanaquil Le Clercq's The Ballet Cook Book:
A 50th Anniversary Celebration
Sunday and Monday, November 5 and 6, 2017 at 7:30pm
The Guggenheim Museum

In 1967, ballerina Tanaquil Le Clercq published The Ballet CookBook, her masterful compendium of ballet history, food stories, and recipes from over 90 leading dancers and choreographers of the day, including George Balanchine, Jacques d'Amboise, Melissa Hayden, and Allegra Kent. To mark the book's 50th anniversary, food scholar Meryl Rosofsky is curating a multifaceted program honoring Le Clercq's artistic, literary, and culinary legacy.  

The program will include conversation with dance legends Jacques d'Amboise and Allegra Kent, who were at the book signing 50 years ago, and New York City Ballet principal dancers Jared Angle and Adrian Danchig-Waring, both talented cooks. The program will open with a presentation by Rosofsky, sharing her findings from her fall 2016 fellowship at the Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU where she delved into the cultural history of Le Clercq's The Ballet Cook Book. Interspersed throughout will bebrief live performance excerpts with roles originated by Ballet Cook Book contributors, from such works as Balanchine's The Four Temperaments, Bugaku, Stars and Stripes, and Western Symphony.
In conjunction with this program, The Wright restaurant at the Guggenheim will serve select dishes from The Ballet Cook Book, including Tanaquil Le Clercq's Chicken Vermouth, George Balanchine's Slow Beet Borschok, Melissa Hayden's Potato Latkas, and Allegra Kent's Walnut Apple Cake.
