A New York mountain range now has its own website - not the range itself, but a coalition to protect the mountain environment: Twenty-six Catskill Park advocacy, not-for-profit, and special interest groups large and small have joined forces to launch catskillparkcoalition.org, described as "a clearinghouse for all things Catskill Park-related."
During the month of April, the Catskill Mountain Foundation is launching its 2014 Orpheum Dance Festival featuring ZviDance. This exciting dance company has offered several Master Classes, and a few open rehearsals at the Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center in Tannersville, NY.
ZviDance is in residency at the Catskill Mountain Foundation and will present an in-progress new work, Surveillance, on Friday, April 25 at 4 pm. This new work, which began development in the fall of 2013, explores our lives in the new world of the surveillance camera.
On Saturday, April 26, 7:30 pm, ZviDance will present a performance of Dabke, a line dance based on a Middle Eastern folk dance often performed at weddings and other celebrations.
The inaugural Orpheum Dance Festival is hosting the residency of the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company (Taylor 2), the outreach and education wing of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, at the Orpheum Performing Arts Center in Tannersville, NY for three weeks through May 26th.
