Celebrate spring at the Skirball Center


The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company – termed a “national treasure” by Variety – celebrates its 39th anniversary with a week of performances at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, Tuesday-Saturday, April 17-21.

Our 2007 season features the premieres of three new Lubovitch works that explore an intriguing range of moods and musical styles. There’s the world premiere of Little Rhapsodies, a series of character studies set to piano etudes by Robert Schumann – and accompanied live by concert pianist Pedja Muzijevic.

The company premiere of Love's Stories moves to a jazz beat, with Lubovitch spinning tales of passion and heartbreak to singer Kurt Elling’s unique interpretations of classic American love songs.  Another world premiere, Dvorak Serenade, features lush, sculptural patterns inspired by that composer’s romantic Op. 22 for strings.

Recordare returns


On April 19 and 20, Limón Dance Company will join the Lubovitch season to perform Lar's critically-acclaimed Recordare. Created in 2005 as an homage to José Limón, Recordare is a comic and celebratory work themed around Mexico’s Day of the Dead, and danced to a modernist score by Elliot Goldenthal. At the time of its world premiere, the Washington Post declared that "Life and death are clasped in a tipsy waltz in Lar Lubovitch’s Recordare (‘Remember’), a boisterous yet ultimately softhearted work," while the Boston Globe termed the work "vibrant, colorful, and irreverent." Now, for two performances only, Recordare will share the stage with the Lubovitch company's 2007 premieres.

39th anniversary gala on April 20

You are cordially invited to join Lar and the company for our spring gala, paying tribute to 39 years of great dance -- and kicking off the countdown to a year of special programming to mark our 40th anniversary in 2008.

Instead of three cheers, our Friday fete on April 20 features three events. The evening begins with a cocktail reception/silent auction at the Mimi Ferzt Gallery in SoHo from 6 to 8 PM.  Next up is the company's performance at the Skirball Center from 8 to 9:45 PM. After the curtain call, our benefit moves on to a dinner at Churrascaria Plataforma in TriBeCa from 9:45 ‘til midnight. Tickets for the event are priced as follows:

$250 FRIEND: reception and performance (very good seats) – $125 tax-deductible.
$500 PATRON: reception, performance (even better seats) and dinner – $250 deductible.
$1,000 BENEFACTOR: the Patron package with the best seats – $750 tax-deductible.

Proceeds from this event will support the company’s creation of new dances, as well as our enrichment programs for students in New York City’s public high schools.
