Dance Month at the Kaplan Theatre

January 16–February 8, 2015

Ate9Celebrating 35 Years of Presenting Dance
IW Marks Theatre Center | The Gerald Rauch Cultural & Performing Arts Wing

The 35th season of Dance Month showcases Houston talent as well as national dancers, teachers and choreographers. 

Join us as we present concerts, master classes, dance parties and Tirkedu Houston!, the annual Israeli Dance Workshop weekend, this year led by Israeli teacher extraordinaire, Ohad Atia.

Come feast upon the diversity of dance styles with Acia Gray of Tapestry Dance Company and local talent such as Houston Metropolitan Dance Company, Teresa Chapman, NobleMotion Dance Company, Uptown Dance Company, Urban Souls, HIStory and Revolve Dance Company.

This season will feature the Los Angeles-based Ate9 Dance Company. Artistic Director, Danielle Agami, former Batsheva Dance Company dancer and Assistant Rehearsal Director, creates a range of work that explores the juxtaposition of subtlety and extreme physicality to find what is honest and human.

Her work is accessible, yet thought-provoking to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. One of her newest works, entitled “mouth to mouth” will be presented.

Wendy Perron, noted dancer, choreographer and journalist says “Danielle Agami has the gift of turning awkwardness into something beautiful. After her terrific hour-long mouth to mouth, you feel you know something slightly crazy about each of the eight dancers in her new Los Angeles–based company, Ate9.”
