I encourage you to READ, REPLY, REGISTER ,SHARE & Keep Your Resolution to DANCE MORE DANCE with Raediant Movement!
Happy New Year & Much Love,
FIELD TRIP – FEB 3rd !
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre is performing at the Kenndey Center. This company and its history is one that has been taught to me for all of my years as a dancer. I wanted to share this amazing opportunity with you all because they meant a big deal to my growth as a dancers and I just think it would be great to share other sides of dance with you. I cant sugar coat this and say that Ticket prices are not steep; for the TOP TIER fron row Tickets are running about $75! But if we have a group of 20+ we would be eligible for a nice discount.
I would like to send a special shout out to my Training To Stage Students, Asia, Kate, and Marie (pictured below), for all of their hard work & dedication the first semester. After only 2 months of class and 1 month of Intensified studies, these Ladies took to the stage with Raediant Movement not once but TWICE in December. This was a welcomed challenge that these ladies took by storm I am very proud of them and look forward to seeing them back in class in the New Year.
Cindy wears many hats as a Choreographer & Director, Dancer & Actress, Dance-storyteller & Playwright, Dance teacher. She was born and raised in Belgium, Cindy has been based in London since 2005. As a true dance backpacker, she has travelled to Africa, USA, Jamaica, Trinidad, and all over Europe. Her many dance trips abroad allowed her not only to train and expand her skills, but also to work as an artist and do in-depth choreographic research while collecting invaluable experiences along the way.
Cindy fell in love with both Reggae & Dancehall culture late 90s when still living in Belgium. From experiencing it first as an “imported culture”, she embarked on a long journey, hungry to know more, wanting to study the art form more in-depth. She has been traveling to Jamaica several times to experience Dancehall first hand since 2010. Cindy has been the recipient of several awards in London, which supported her many explorations overseas: the Lisa Ullman Traveling Scholarship Fund, ADAD Trailblazers 2013-14, the Bonnie Bird UK New Choreography Fund, Grant for the Arts / Arts Council England. As an ADAD Trailblazer 2013-14, she set up a Dancehall Theatre Exchange Program between Jamaica and the UK. She lead informal Dancehall Theatre sessions at Edna Manley College (Kingston) in 2010 and 2011. In 2014, she was finally able to bring over Shady Squad straight from Kingston to London, not only to teach but also to perform as part of her Dancehall Theatre Production.
After this incredible accomplishment, Cindy has lead a series of Dancehall Theatre session in Jamaica, with the support of DanceJa. Latonya Style fully and generously supported the project. The DanceJa Collective. She has presented work internationally (UK, Belgium, Hollywood, San Francisc, Jamaica, etc.). Her unstoppable fountain of energy is her signature. Her shows are artistic earthquakes touching people’s souls and hearts through laughter and tears.
Influenced by the Hip Hop Theatre movement which has been growing and pushing boundaries since the 90s, Cindy is also passionate about using Dancehall in Theatre, telling stories through dance.
