Thank you to all who submitted choreographic work for Rhythmically Speaking 2016. Each year, we receive many solid, thoughtful, intriguing and high-quality submissions, which makes for a lot of difficult decisions. Like a creative puzzle, the show has been curated as a whole to represent a wide, diverse range of work while fitting together as a cohesive, intriguing show of a decent length. There were many factors at play in selecting works for the show, including centrality of metric rhythm, artistic quality, style, concept, and length. Choreographers for the 2016 show are as follows:
Pat Taylor (Artistic Director of LA-based company Jazz Antiqua)
RS Artistic Director Erinn Liebhard will also be presenting a piece in the show. We truly enjoyed viewing your work, and encourage you to continue creating and enriching our community; we are really blown away by the wealth of rhythmic talent in the Twin Cities! Thank you for engaging with Rhythmically Speaking. We hope you will stay connected with us in the future, as we exist to serve the jazz and rhythm-based dance community of which you are a part!
