11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Elisa Monte, after whom Elisa Monte Dance is named, worked as a principal dancer with Martha Graham Company for eight years, as well as Lar Lubovitch and Pilobolus, among others. Monte’s first choreographic work, Treading, created in 1979, immediately identified her as an important innovator and contributor to contemporary dance. Her signature style – daring, intense, passionate – is filled with a classical, athletic virtuosity.
Initiated in sensuality and sustained by an underlying, steady energy, Monte’s work is especially notable for the expansive range of movement upon which she draws. Monte has acquired an eminently wide vocabulary as a choreographer, at the same time refusing to conform or be confined by the parameters of stylistic constraints. Ms. Monte has choreographed over 30 works danced by Boston Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, San Francisco Ballet, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Ballet Gulbenkian of Portugal, Teatro alla Scala, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, North Carolina Dance Theater, the Batsheva Dance Company of Israel the PACT Contemporary Dance Company of South Africa and Philadanco. Repertory will be taught by the company’s Associate Artistic Director Tiffany Rea-Fisher who has been with the company since 2004.
