CATALYSTThe Dance Complex
announces its 2015/16

Five artists moving dance forward:
Chavi Bansal, Callie Chapman,
Michael Figueroa, Sarah Mae Gibbons and Kat Nasti. &

taught by CATALYST artists and guests including Zoe Scofield, Francesca Harper, Pam Pietro & members of Doug Varone & Dancers

September 1, 2015, Cambridge, MA: The Dance Complex has identified and is supporting five artists in a new initiative in the 2015/16 season. These five artists comprise CATALYSTS. CATALYSTS are chosen for their unique and developing artistic voices and their ability to catalyze energies into moving dance forward- for themselves and within a community of dancers and dance audiences.

Through the fall, CATATLYSTS will create new works; support each other's work processes; and share with the dance community new dances and awareness. They will share their works in progress at The Dance Complex's new monthly Sunday Salons. A CATALYSTS performance series will debut in January of 2016, and a series of related int/adv movement classes begins September 8, 2015, all at The Dance Complex.

2015/16 CATALYSTS artists at The Dance Complex are Chavi Bansal, Callie Chapman, Michael Figueroa, Sarah Mae Gibbons and Kat Nasti. Bio snapshots appear below. Pics available on request.

The artists will also become core teaching artists for CATALYST CLASSES, a series of intermediate/advanced movement classes highlighting multiple ideas and definitions of technique, encouraging an outside-the-lines, rigorous practice in dance. The classes run 10:00am- 11:45 am, Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning September 8,2015. Class fees will help fund CATALYST artists performances in January/February.

Joining the CATALYSTS as guest teaching artists for CATALYST CLASSES this fall will be choreographer, Boston Conservatory alum and Guggenheim recipient Zoe Scofield; choreographer and former soloist with Dance Theatre of Harlem and William Forsythe's company, Francesca Harper; ADF and NYU faculty, Pam Pietro, Matthew Cumbie of Dance Exchange, Betsy Miller of AS220/Providence and members of Doug Varone and Dancers.

The Dance Complex announces new core class programming
Le Grand Dance Collaborative
Community Class Series Begins
September 12, 2015, 3:30-5:00pm at The Dance Complex

Le Grand Dance Collaborative, this fall at The Dance Complex!

September 1, 2015, Cambridge, MA:

Always a place where everyone feels welcome to dance, The Dance Complex commits to a series of community workshops this season. The first core series is a the Le Grand Dance Collaborative. The movement class meets on most Saturdays this fall 3:30 - 5:00p beginning September 12. Updated info can be found at

Over several weeks through early December, the participants in the class series will learn about different movement styles. Beginning September 12, the class will learn a flash mob version of "Thriller" with the option of performing on Halloween at a dance party at The Dance Complex. Anyone joining will have the choice just to have a great movement experience, with no commitment to performance.

A sliding scale for class fees will be available, via the LGDC administrator Tyh at All are welcome to the classes, regardless of experience.

The intent of LGDC is to create opportunities for anyone to experience the physicality, the expression and art-forms within dance, in an environment that allows engagement for the self and with others. The goal is to dance and also enjoy the great by-products of dancing including self awareness, social interaction and community building.

Le Grand Dance Collaborative community class series began as the result of several individuals from all walks of all life - from all areas of Boston and beyond, young and old, those who have studied some dance and some totally new to it - meeting for a project presented by The Celebrity Series of Boston last year. Once the project, Le Grand Continental choreographed by Montreal's Sylvain Emard, completed its performances, many of the participants said, "What's next?" These classes at The Dance Complex continue a legacy of dance, participation and engagement.

WHAT Le Grand Dance Collaborative, at The Dance Complex; community class series on Saturdays beginning September 12, 2015 and continuing through Dec 5th; participation flexible by the week or take the whole series
COST Fees per class range depending on the activity and if bought within a series or singly; these fees can range from $8.00- $18.00 per single class and more for a series; for current class info and prices
