Arts for the Schools presents: Ronald K. Brown/Evidence
October 17, 2008
Over the past 25 years, Arts For the Schools has provided access, awareness and hands-on educational experiences for students to interact with professional artists, both local and world-renown. These experiences are designed to enhance early learning, increase understanding of other cultures, promote artistic expression and foster a life-long appreciation of the arts.
In celebration of their 25th anniversary, Arts For the Schools and the Western States Arts Federation are honored to present a free community performance by the exceptional New York-based dance company, Ronald K. Brown/Evidence, Oct. 22, 7 p.m. at the North Tahoe High School Theatre.
Brown uses movement as a way to reinforce the importance of community in African American culture and to acquaint audiences with the beauty of traditional African forms and rhythms.
It will be an experience to remember. Brooklyn-born Ronald K. Brown has been called “one of the few major choreographers to emerge in American modern dance in the last 10 years” by The New York Times. His work brings together modern dance, West African traditional dance, and urban street styles to form a powerful and unique vocabulary of movement.
Arts For the Schools is a community based non-profit and the only arts organization in the North Tahoe area that serves children, adults and families throughout the year.
The Artist-in-Residence instruction has proven to be an enduring program. Three professional artists teach specialized classes ranging from traditional visual arts to poetry and creative writing to quilt making and totem poles.
