A medley of extemporania;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Roumania." -- Dorothy Parker

Hi! I thought I would write to and introduce myself!

My name is Michael, and I'm currently enrolling students in my stretch classes for the 2006 year. My stretching/conditioning classes are positive and motivating, and are designed to inspire dancers and gymnasts of all levels to reach their peak in their flexibility, and give them the edge they need! I'm now giving individual tuition to students in the Sydney/Central Coast/Newcastle areas!

Splits are one one of the most challenging stretches to accomplish, and require regularity in your stretching routine to perfect them. Do you get frustrated at times because some days are harder than other days? I'm able to give you all the answers and the support you need to do all of the splits 100% perfectly, and in a short time. I also help you to set goals (short and long term), so you're always continually making progress. The first class is free! (in Sydney, the Central Coast and Newcastle).

If you would like to join, my contact email is below.

Dance Films Association, Inc. (DFA)
serving the dance film community for 51 years
48 West 21st St., #907
NY, NY 10010
(212) 727-0764


Dance Films Association's 36th annual touring Dance on Camera Festival

Deadline: September 15, 2007

The entry form is on-line at:

DFA's 36th annual Dance On Camera Festival 2008 will be held January
2-12, 2008 at the Walter Reade Theater, Lincoln Center Plaza, 165
West 65th Street, New

York City, the Donnell Media Center of The New York Public Library,
and other venues still to be announced. The oldest annual dance film/
video festival in the

world, the Dance On Camera Festival has been co-sponsored by the Film
Society of Lincoln Center since 1997 and has
toured to over

50 venues internationally.

New this year: Image/word event to honor poetry in dance films, as
initiated by poet/choreographer Kevon "Bulletyme" Simpson at
Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

What DFA looks for: We seek strong synergies of dance and film,
whether it be a dance made for the camera, documentary, adaptation of
a stage

work or site specific creation. We also welcome animation,
narratives, and works in which the kinetic energy and rhythmic design
comes solely from the editor or

lighting designer. Dance films can be driven from the prime
perspective of dance, cinema, visual arts, or in the case of
documentaries, information. Our host

venue prefers to present only New York Premieres.

What we offer: DFA grants the Jury Prize Winner with a cash prize.
The filmmakers of the titles included in the Festival tour get an
honorarium for each screening

(see more information.)
The Festival has received wide press support, although we cannot
guarantee in-depth

critiques. On DFA's website, we have a page devoted to reviews -
"Read Reviews/Write your own to encourage community feedback.

Deadline: September 15, 2007

Please write ( that you are entering the
festival. Entrants will be informed by late October, 2007 as to where
their titles will be screened.

The entry form is on-line at:

Dance on Camera is getting HOT as major universities, festivals,
museums, as well as independent artists present film’s oldest
partner – dance!

After 100 years of dancers working with filmmakers, recognition and
curiosity in this complex and multi-faceted artform is picking up all
over the world.
John Rockwell, The New York Times, January, 1, 2006 wrote that "The
Dance on Camera Festival is..
"where the allusiveness of dance meets the intimacy of film to create
a new kind of magic" The earliest film directors recognized the
immediacy and emotional power of dance. The two arts, dance and film,
have enjoyed a passionate, sometimes stormy marriage ever since.
Today the genre of dance film/video continues to evolve as dancers
collaborate with writers and directors around the world to create
innovative narratives, shorts, features, documentaries, and screen
adaptations of choreography originally made for the stage. Dance on
camera is the art of choreographing cinema that is burgeoning around
the world.

Dance Films Association, Inc. (DFA), a non-profit, tax-exempt, member-
supported service organization, promotes excellence in dance on
camera and public awareness of the artform through festivals,
screenings, publications, grants, and workshops. Its many partners
help to bring its touring programs to a wide public. Susan Braun
founded the organization in 1956 after a futile search for films on
her favorite dancer, Isadora Duncan. A tireless pioneer, Ms. Braun
devoted her life to finding, showcasing, preserving and championing
dance films and videos until her death in 1995. Ted Shawn, the
founder of Jacob's Pillow, was DFA's charter member.

Initiated in 1971 to foster creativity and encourage collaborations
between dancers and film makers, DFA's annual Dance On Camera
Festival provides an overview of the field and a meeting ground for
artists to share ideas. Entrants (generally about 250 from 22
countries) regularly attend the festival. The winner of the festival
receives a cash award. Every year, excerpts from select entries are
shown on Classic Art Showcase, and other cable programs. For the
screenings in the tour outside of New York, the filmmakers receive a
honorarium. DFA is a founding member of MAD, Media and Dance network
of over 30 dance film festivals around the world. To commemorate
DFA's fiftieth anniversary, DFA began a new program, The Susan Braun
Award/Young Choreographers Initiative, to encourage and support
America's finest choreographers and filmmakers to create works
specifically for the camera. The winner will develop a short work
with a team of mentors and a cash award from DFA.

These programs are made possible through DFA's touring program
sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State
Council on the Arts, Capezio-Ballet Makers Foundation, The Howard
Gilman Foundation, the members of DFA, and the Susan Braun Trust.

Please post this information.

Thank you!

discussion about the shared concerns of dance and media, while striving to
build, strengthen, and define the international screendance community.
Participants will gain exposure to the field’s most cutting-edge
theories, research, and observations through four days of panels,
presentations, screenings, and demonstrations. As members
of the ADF community attendees will have additional access to networking
opportunities and the option of attending a world premiere as part of the
ADF’s 75th anniversary performances.

Guidelines for Proposal Submissions

of curating and its relationship to screendance. Submitted papers must

proposals for curated programs to be presented for screening, discussion,
and curatorial critique.

Deadline for proposals is Friday, April 11, 2008.

anniversary celebrations, applicants are encouraged to submit an early

Helper Needed for show this weekend


This is an opportunity to do a really quite simple job that needs to be filled or
our performance this weekend will not go on.

Could you or anyone you know help? If so, send them my way ASAP.<>

With the Seattle Sostice Fire Festival rescheduled due to snow to the weekend of
January 10-11th, our previously secured Technical Assistant cannot do the new date
because he has another show. OFDT needs someone to fill his shoes for the
performance and tech rehearsal. Seattle Center is not offering us a proper dress and
tech rehearsal, so we need to have one of our people in place to assist their sound
Basically, the Technical Assistant tells the sound guy when to push play and when to
pause. It's a really short show and there are less than 10 cues.

Responsibilities include:
- Attend the technical and spacing rehearsal on Thursday January 8th from 7-9:30pm.
This is to learn cues (less than 10) and practice before the show.
- Attend sound check with the Seattle Center sound technician 3:30pm Saturday.
(Makes sure the CD works and is loud enough)
- Call sound cues to the sound technician during the performances. ( Tell him when
to hit play and stop, which you'll have learned Thursday.)
- Giving 15 and 10 minute warning to performers and safeties for places

Time Commitment:
- 1 meeting/ phone conversation with Rachel at a mutually agreed time
- Rehearsal: Thursday, Jan 8th, 7-9:30pm
- Performances: Saturday Jan. 10th, 3-6:30pm and Sunday Jan 11th, 4:45-6:30 pm.

A small stipend is available.

Please help us out. This is a really simple job that can make or break our performance.
