Back Against The Wall May 6, 2015 | jbake09 | More on General
"What our lives become is ultimately a culmination of our choices. There are many kinds…face - the physical, mental, emotional…the easy, the difficult, the uncertain. But perhaps the most challenging choice in life, is the one that is the only option. A choice that we are forced to make, with our back’s against the wall, the only route being forward. This “choice” is the most telling of our character - do we take the punches, fight back, or dodge left or right? Or is it possible to choose to break down that wall and create our own new pathway?" --- Choreography by Jared Baker --- Music by Philip Glass (Performed by Kronos Quartet) --- Performed by Devin Buchanan (Giordano Dance Chicago), Carlee Clover, Tenley Dorrill (Thodos Dance Chicago), Drew Gliwa, Adam Houston (Giordano Dance Chicago), Jacey Raney, Diana Winfree (Thodos Dance Chicago)Read More

Judy May 5, 2015 | sblandino | More on General
Being a theatrical, contemporary piece, the blending of styles replicates the ups & downs of…Garland's career. From her innocence in "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to her 1968 performance of "For Once in My Life", the piece collects all of those emotions, and puts them forth in an intricate, nostalgic way, jam packed with physically demanding choreo... all things I love to put into my work. Dancers: Kathleen Laituri, Melissa McCann, Brianna Roland, Elizabeth DuPont, Melanie Spilatore, Madisyn Maniff "...Judy by Steven Blandino, a contemporary dance named for Judy Garland, whose choreography blends an escalating sense of intensity with graceful moments of thoughtful pause." -CriticalDance "The girls in Steven Blandino's 'Judy' were very emotive, offering a very powerful performance". -Examiner Steven's choreography credits include 2015 APAP at Peridance, the HERO Awards: honoring Jerry Mitchell, the 2014/15 Young Choreographer’s Festival, 2015 Choreographer's Canvas, and more.

Reflections of Her April 29, 2015 | tehallor | More on General
This work is about how women see themselves and how that self-image transforms in the…they have with each other. I am a choreographer who centers my works on expressing ideas that all people can relate to, but resonate with those who are passionate about social interactions and life circumstances. I like to blur the lines between dance genres and styles by combining the movement techniques of modern, hip-hop, jazz and contemporary. I use the dynamics of motion and choreographic levels to create explosive and exciting movement phrases that can contrast the delicacy of human emotion.Read More
