Dance – Jacque's Clothesline

I am honored and thrilled to be a small part of this project with Jacque's Clothesline:

**THE HEALING SERIES MOTIVATIONAL T-SHIRTS
Jacque’s Clothesline, LLC. is pleased to announce the release of the “Healing Series”.

As 2020 has finally come to a close, many challenges remain. People often struggle to find peace and comfort during difficult times, and the challenges of the COVID-19 virus and our national division have added to that stress. This all has caused us at Jacque’s Clothesline to reflect on the things that we often find calming and reassuring. Like many of you, we are sure you find healing energy in many of these same things: art, music, theater, sports, kindness, love, pets, science, teaching, and, yes, even wine.

To that end, we have created our Healing Series–a collection of wearable art which carries the themes that have always helped and comforted us, our families, and our friends.**

DTSW also is so very thankful for our incredible dance family!

Happy Holidays to all! 🌞

Please see below for more accolades of thankfulness! 🙂

“ It has been a difficult time for all —it has been difficult for all Arts and Performing Arts groups throughout our country and the world.

On behalf of all of us, Festival Ballet Albuquerque wishes to extend our extreme thanks to all of our supporters, including the amazing GivingTuesday generosity shown, many of whom have been here for us year after year. FBA thanks greatly all the new supporters during this especially difficult last almost 10 months.

FBA is so thankful to the City of Albuquerque, Albuquerque City Councilors each and every one, Mayor Tim Keller, Néw Mexico Arts, and most recently Bernalillo County, for all the incredible support made possible to help keep our dance artists, choreographers and auxiliary musicians finding a way forward during this pandemic!

Coming back stronger in 2021!”


💥💥💥 In the meantime, stay posted for a very special uplifting holiday treat coming later this week! 🌞

Patricia

[12/10/20]   Thank you to all the students, families and friends for all your support!! We are back in the studio this week and next week, fingers crossed that the numbers don’t rise again, and looking forward to our last 10 days of classes for 2020. We continue to stay strong and dancing in masks has made us stronger, too!

Thank you!
Patricia

[12/06/20]   THIS IS A LONG POST—YOU MAY WANT TO SCROLL PAST ♥️

💥This is for our wonderful Dance Theatre Southwest families, too!

As the Artistic Director of an amazing group of incredibly dedicated and talented group of dancers, who through there own hard work, have become professionals in their own rights, and many have grown with me since my move to New Mexico 30 years ago. I am so proud of all of you! For the younger dancers now looking up to these amazing artists, I am so proud of you, too! And to the amazing group of older, dedicated dancers who grace the stage as First Act Party parents or Townspeople, you are the heart of any major ballet production. I thank all of you!!

For the amazing audiences, sponsors, patrons, Friends of FBA, and just really cool personal friends, who have supported this crazy unorthodox journey of mine, thank you, too...just thank you....

I am heavy in heart right now and working to pull up! As any of the dancers or anyone who knows me knows, I am a proverbial see “the bright side” person and I don’t give up easily at all ever...

I made so many plans to keep the dancers working/engaged, trying to circumvent this horrible disease and pandemic from which we are all suffering. I made so many different versions of how to present NUTCRACKER IN THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT for this holiday season. Eric R Kennedy and I worked for days and days to work out so many different scenarios including outside on major stages with projected video walls. That became impossible late September/early October when music festivals were shut down. Then we punted to indoor performance with no audience, virtual projection on outdoor video walls in a drive-up venue. We rehearsed and I re-choreographed all sections to accommodate social distancing—the dancers were completely masked and following all protocols the entire time. Even the tiny “mice” held steady to their 10 ft squares! The upper level professionals all took Covid tests and in masks, began partnering again after 8 months—it was beautiful!! Like they had barely had any time off—muscle memory is a beautiful thing! It was like watching kids in a toy/candy shop all at once!!

And then our positive virus numbers in NM rose again and we needed to shelter in place once again to try and stop the crazy spread in NM. To protect and save lives! Yes, we are sad but all dancers are on board to stay safe...we all know people who have become ill, so far no dancers, and that’s how we plan to keep it.

A virtual HOLIDAY video will be coming to you soon with excerpts of what we WERE able to do/get taped. The video will be special, with dance and song, as a message of HOPE for the future.

We WILL produce a NUTCRACKER IN THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT in the next 6 months, and honestly, as crazy as this year has been, why the not??!! Complete with Orchesta!! 🌞

Also look forward to SACRED JOURNEYS III and NÉW MEXICO DANCE FESTIVAL! We are not down, just postponed!! 🌞

Please wear your masks so we can all get back to doing what we love and do best!!

♥️♥️♥️. Patricia

special thanks to Louie Giannini too

[09/04/20]   💥💥
I AM SO EXCITED!! The Covid virus has pushed us ALL to keep rethinking just about everything in our lives!
Tonight, in Advanced Ballet technique class, I tried out the following (this is ballet technique jargon but it WORKED!) 🙂.
All within a 10 x 10 foot square!

1) chainne entournant turns with a glissade in between, in a square
2) pique entournant ménage to the corners
3) Grande jete and sauté chat leaps with a special combo to move them back to their corners!!

It CAN be done and thanks to all the students, we proved it can be done...

With love to all with my continued experimental journey during Covid!!

♥️♥️♥️♥️
