Conversations in the Arts: “Women in Dance”
April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Conversations in the Arts is a new series of participatory talks presented by the Huntington Arts Council. We have invited scholars from our community to help us understand the key roles of women in the arts and allow us to question the values and contributions to society that their roles have generated. These enriching discussions will focus on the history of women in the sector and include personal experiences and observations. All talks are free to the public.
“Women in Dance” explores dance, touching on historical areas where women rose to the front, such as Modern Dance, Expressionist Dance and Flamenco. The panel discusses their careers and how women have influenced the field. “Women in Dance” features Maria Loreta Celitan, founder and Artistic Director of Sol y Sombra; Beth Jucovy, founder and Artistic Director of Dance Visions NY; Amy Yopp Sullivan, Associate Professor in the Department of Theatre Arts at SUNY Stony Brook and the founder/creator of Center for Dance, Movement and Somatic Learning.
