Fridays at Noon: Dance Lineage
Friday, April 25, 2014, 12:00 pm
92nd Street Y, Lexington Avenue at 92nd St, Buttenwieser Hall
Choreographer and designer James Waring was an influential avant-garde artist of the 1950s and 60s in New York. Bard Professor Aileen Passloff danced with him and Arthur Aviles '87 studied with her. Aviles then danced with Bill T. Jones and now runs the Bronx Academy of Art and Dance. Do Waring's ideas still inform what Aviles creates today? Find out as we look at dances by all three choreographers.

Fridays at Noon tickets are $5 and should be purchased in advance online or at the 92Y Box Office in the lobby.
