This March, my mentor Yuriko passed away. She was 102. She had a beautiful full life. Even with her hard times, she always said " i have a good life". Past Thursday, we celebrated her life at 92nd Y Kaufmann Theater where she had her company performed in 40's.
There were 12 speakers, each one of us had a theme to talk. I talked about Martha Graham Ensemble.
So many friends were there in person and virtual. There was everyone's love to celebrate Yuriko, it was a beautiful evening.

Until this year, I have never wanted to set Martha's Primitive Mysteries, the first Martha's Ballet I have ever danced in 1984. But this year, I said yes. It is a most beautiful ballet, but the hardest one.

Stephen is choreographing a new work!!! Music is very challenging but they are having a great time. We went to a dance/ music concert and we discover this composer Caroline Shaw.

Hope to see you in person or virtual!!!

今年3月に私の師匠のユリコ・キクチ先生が亡くなりました。102歳でした。彼女のことは日本の方々にも知っておいていただきたいので、また後にゆっくり記事を書きますが、その彼女の指導で、1984年に初めてグラハム作品を踊った作品がこの「プリミティブ ミステリーズ」でした。この作品日本語では「古代の秘儀」というタイトルがついています。
この作品を私が振り付け指導にあたるのはずっと断ってきたのですが、今年初めてやることにしました。その公演が来週末です!是非劇場にて、あるいはオンラインで見ていただくことができます!!!

As many of you know, Martha Graham's Primitive Mysteries was my first
Graham work that I danced in 1984. I finally agreed and I am extremely
thrilled to set this historically important work on dancers at the Hartt
School Dance Division. And this boot camp rehearsals are going well!!!
Come join me in person!
Hartford is not that far from NYC or Boston. Take a bus or train!
Let me know if you are coming!!!

Spring is almost here in NY!!!



Dear All,

Seems like SPRING is almost here in NY!

I saw magnolia blooming in our community garden. It is a beautiful tree and it’s all pink!

Right now, we are preparing for HARTT DANCES. Stephen and I are setting Jacqulyn Buglisi's work, which we were a part of original 15 dance artists and it is so nice to re-visit this wonderful work. Lots of memories.

Please join us in person or Live Streaming !

Hello all!

I am very proud of what Stephen is doing at the Hartt School. Since he started his directorship, he brought in many of artists in to the program. He admired his mentor, Benjamin Harkervy and his vision, and Stephen's own idea about dance as profession. Had a great professional experience, he wanted to share with these young artists. It is quite amazing to watch these young artists take in what the school offer. It is so great to see the pedagogy class and pilates certification program, so that when you graduate you have a chance to get a job as practitioner or instructor. It is a great way to earn and proceed your own dreams!!! I so wished I am teenager to go to school like this...

I just wanted to share what I am very proud of!!!
Have a great rest of Februry!!!
love
