In Episode 11, Clara catches up with Uri Sands, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Minnesota-based TU Dance, while he is in New York for a TU performance in Central Park. They discuss Uri’s time at Alvin Ailey (and many other prestigious companies), his choreographic process, and the mission of community empowerment engendered in TU Dance as a company and a school. Learn more about Uri on our Guests page and more about TU at tudance.org.
In this episode we chat with triple threat Writer/Director/Choreographer Wendy Seyb about her experience bringing comedy to movement in dance, theater and film. Wendy tells us about finding her niche in comedy, choreographing The Pee Wee Herman Show for Broadway and watching the dance world evolve over time. As usual we uncover some fun tidbits along the way – like Wendy’s role as Sebastian the Crab on the Disney stage!
