Lucie Baker Dance
After my summer jaunts in Seattle I returned to New York for a busy Fall. I joined the faculty of the Chen Dance Center teaching Pre-Ballet Ballet 1 and Modern 1 on Saturdays, began a Pilates Mat Certification at the Kane School, started working at Exerblast in Tribeca and spent a week volunteer teaching for ASTEP at Incarnacion Children's Center in Washington Heights. In September, I traveled to Vassar College with Jane Comfort performing Beauty to a packed house, showed new work in progress with Erica Essner at the Brooklyn Zen Center and had the first rehearsals of my residency at the Field for my new project RUIN, a split bill evening with Carlye Eckert (you will be hearing a lot about that in the future). In October, Jane Comfort and Company brought Beauty to the American Dance Institute in Rockville, Maryland, I performed an excerpt of the show at Joe's Pub with Gardiner Comfort (reprisal scheduled for December 5th) and we are looking forward to APAP performances in January. I had an excellent Halloween and am anticipating the coming winter with trepidation. Nobody likes winter in New York.
