Peter DiMuro, The Dance Complex Director.The Dance Complex cracks opens the
door to the secrets of dance with

Growing the Dance Experience

a once a month series to see, discuss and engage with new dance every first Sunday.

SUNDAY SALON AT SIX at The Dance Complex

Due to schedule conflicts, there will be no Sunday Salon on May 1 or May 8th, as previously listed. Stay tuned for news on upcoming Salons.

As we continue with our first Sunday of each month, March has a special twist: We will invite our next cohort of aMaSSiT participants to be a part of this Sunday's Salon.

Each Salon, we look at works in progress and respond to the work we see through various methods, but primarily adapations of Critical Response Process, developed by Liz Lerman Dance Exchange.

Everyone gets better at looking at and responding to dance: not only those of us who have dance as a regular diet in our lives, but also our supporting audiences, family and arts-friendly (and potential donors?)

It's really great when those "outside" of dance come and respond, for those of us insiders, we get to be aware of what is really reading, when we use "dance code".

You're welcome to join us, and bring someone who you think would have a good time learning more about their own craft of dance or someone who is mystified by this thing we do.

If you are interested in showing works in progress at a future Salon, contact Stephen at

Showing their work in rotation with artists from the wider community will be artists affiliated with The Dance Complex through our choreographic creative labs, including a newly formed group of artists, the CATALYSTS. CATALYSTS are a group of 5 up and coming artists in residence at The Dance Complex, creating new works for a 3 week festival in the new year.

Peter DiMuro, director of Peter DiMuro / Public Displays of Motion and Executive Director of The Dance Complex, will facilitate the discussions, using adaptations of the Critical Response Process, developed by Liz Lerman and Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. The process helps anyone involved in a creative process stand back from their work and articulate for themselves what they are making, while also allowing those viewing the work to cultivate their own curiosities about the movement they see.

DiMuro, formerly the Artistic Director of Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, has led the process around the world: among social workers in Hong Kong, cloggers in Ireland, academics in Alabama, visual artists at RISD and Yale, and many places where creativity abounds.
