Metropolitan Ballet Company to Dance Finale of Friday Night Performance at National Regional Dance America Festival

March 13th, 2007 |

MBC dancers were thrilled to learn that they have been selected to close the Friday night performance of the national Regional Dance America (RDA) Festival in Pittsburgh, PA on April 27, 2007.

MBC will be performing Eternal Space choreographed by Kanji Segawa, a dancer with the popular Mark Morris Dance Group and an emerging choreographer in his own right. This is the second work that Vidnovic has commissioned from Segawa for MBC; the Company has previously performed Segawa’s Toward the Light.

Dancing in the work will be Kristen Astorga, Michael Brown, Andrea D’Annunzio, Lisa Fagan, Melissa Gelfin, Irene Goudimyak, Mary Guarnieri, Brianna Leporace, Torrey McAnena, Leah McCormick, Sarah Mettin, Candice Nemec, Nikita Rosencranz, Scott Stampone, Jonathan Tavares, Kora Vidnovic, Allison Warren, Jessica Warren and Olivia Wyszkowski. Eternal Space was commissioned in part through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

This is only the second national RDA Festival in 50 years, and only the third year that MBC has been a member of RDA. The five-day celebration of dance will involve more than 2000 dancers from 92 companies.
