The opportunity to have uninterrupted time and space to make new work was a piece of SUMMERDANCE that had lasting impact on the lives and careers of dancers. This was the piece of the festival that seemed most important to continue.— Dianne Vapnek, Founder and Executive Director, SUMMERDANCE Santa Barbara, Artistic Director DANCEworks

Just a quick DANCEworks update: Aszure Barton & Artists are in Spoleto, Italy this weekend, performing at the Festival dei Due Monde. This is just another step in Busk’s world domination tour. In other news, Larry Keigwin opened Jacob’s Pillow last month, and Doug Elkins just performed this past weekend at The Yard in Martha’s Vineyard. We are so proud of all our Choreographers-in-Residence! We want to again thank our DANCEworks supporters. Our residency is having a national and international impact, and helping these wonderful choreographers to build their repertoires and careers. We look forward to sharing the coming year (featuring Brian Brooks) with you and with the community of Santa Barbara!
