FROM THE FOLKS AT SLAM (Christine Chen):
Dear STREB Fans, Families and Friends,
I am extremely honored to be taking the reins as STREB's new executive director, a position I started in late August. In many ways, I feel like I've returned home after spending time leading teams and programs at other arts and cultural organizations, most recently the 92nd Street Y.
STREB has been an inspiration and empowering force in my life over the last few decades - as an audience member, Action Hero, educator, former board member, and as a student - with my husband and son - at the trapeze academy. This fall has been an incredibly exciting time for the company, full of premieres and commissions that took us abroad to Paris, Abu Dhabi and New Jersey, and I've loved seeing our home space at SLAM full of energy and action as all of our classes get started for the season.
I hope you'll join us for our special event on October 28 and at our Home Season which kicks off in November. Thank you for being involved in this exciting organization and I look forward to getting to know you all more!
(Read a Dance Informa Interview with Christine here)
I'm writing today to share with you The Dance Union - a podcast that is becoming an increasingly important resource to the dance/performance community. The Dance Union podcast is the brainchild of J Bouey and Melanie Greene. It captures timely and ephemeral conversations circulating within dance communities. It supports transparent discourse about a variety of topics including pay inequality, sexual harassment, abuse of power, and tokenism. The Dance Union podcast was born from the need to unify and amplify marginalized voices within the United States dance communities.
A unique component of the podcast is that hosts J. and Melanie, both Black artists, center Black and marginalized experiences through culturally specific considerations, and first person advocacy. Guests are invited each week to share their experiences, and in addition to clever incorporation of movement into a digital medium, episodes offer History for the Future, a main topic of discussion, and statements envisioning a truly realized Dance Union.
Here is a link to a few of their episodes, I hope you will take the time to listen!

Succeeding dancer + choreographer Faustin Linyekula and visual artist William Kentridge, Bill said about the new role:
“I am curious and breathless at the prospect of being this venerable, essential festival’s Associate Artist for 2020: curious to encounter the audiences for my own work in a European context and breathless at the prospect of representing “the Artist” in this fractious, confusing time in which liberal values and social stability in the USA and in many places around the world are endangered at every turn while a lust for individuality and self-determination drives discourse.”
FROM THE FOLKS AT THE NATIONAL BALLET OF CUBA & Jodi Kaplan Booking Dance:
We sadly mourn the passing of Alicia Alonso. It is our great honor to continue working with the esteemed National Ballet of Cuba in bringing Alicia Alonso's artistic vision to the world. We are indebted to her renowned accomplishments and devoted to sharing her legacy.
Alicia Alonso, Artistic Director and Founder of The National Ballet of Cuba, known for her impeccable technique and exuberant stage presence, passed away on October 17 at a hospital in Havana. She was 98.
The National Ballet of Cuba became one of the most prestigious ballet companies in the world, and under her guidance, its school became highly successful in producing world-class dancers.
Alonso represented Cuba triumphantly in 65 countries, performing for audiences all over the world, from Helsinki to Buenos Aires, from New York to Tokyo and Melbourne. She is the receipient of 266 international awards and the choreographer of 69 works - romantic, classic, and contemporary - for The National Ballet of Cuba.
