Where Dance and Community Meet!
The December installment of danceXchange will gather at Old Town Temecula Community Theater in the Merc on Tuesday, December 18th at 7:00 PM. The up close and personal setting is ideal for the informal and ever-eclectic gathering of dancers and dance patrons. This month, danceXchange will host works by San Diego’s Blythe Barton and Inland Empire dancers Val Carnahan, Alexandra Thomsen-Wolfe, and Jeremy Sewell, among others.
Blythe Barton received both her BFA (Chapman University) and MFA (Florida State University) in Dance Performance and Choreography. In 2008, She moved back to California to pursue a professional dance career and currently performs professionally with Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater and Malashock Dance. She has won awards for outstanding student performance and choreography and her work has been performed at the American College Dance Festival. In the past two years, Blythe’s choreography was commissioned by Leverage Dance and Chapman University and presented at the San Diego Young Choreographers Prize, Ignite, Celebrate Dance Festival San Diego. This spring her work will also be presented at New Voices from San Diego Dance Theater and Backhaus Dance’s Platform. www.blythebartondance.com
danceXchange is a joint effort between Dance Theatre Collective of Southern California and Temecula Presents in order to bring local dancers, choreographers, and audiences together in a friendly environment to present works-in-progress, unfinished pieces, improvisation, and even polished work. Audiences sit in close proximity to the dance; and dancers get to share their work and movement ideas with a supportive and friendly audience. At just $5.00 a ticket, it is the best dance value in the area–and it is always a unique experience.
Dancers who wish to present (all types of dance performances are accepted) should email the coordinator Lori Craig Torok at danceXchange.email@example.com.
