Dance Week, Take 2!
April 24, 2012


What a remarkable day of dance! Sunday’s Dance Week Celebration presented by Kathy Mata Ballet featured an incredible gathering of dancers and styles ranging from modern to lindy hop to folkloric dance to ballet. We were thrilled to be part of the action and to premiere our new piece, “The Green Chair.” The beautiful, lofty space and intimate salon atmosphere were the perfect setting for an afternoon to remember.

If you missed it, don’t fret- you’ll have another chance to catch the show this Sunday, April 29 at Alonzo King’s LINES Dance Center. Register today to reserve your spot at (search for “Kathy Mata”).

Looking forward to seeing you there!


Grab Your Seat for Dance Week!
April 18, 2012


It’s the (second) most wonderful time of the year! Bay Area Dance Week is upon us, when studios around the bay open their doors and amazing teachers, performers and choreographers spoil us with more than 600 FREE EVENTS, including classes, shows, open rehearsals, lecture demonstrations and more. It’s the perfect time to check out that class you’ve always wanted to try, go behind-the-scenes and get inspired at open rehearsals for some of the hottest dance companies in town and, of course, see some fantastic performances- all free of charge!

This year, Gnosis Dance Collective is very proud to be part of Kathy Mata Ballet’s Dance Week Celebration. On Sunday 4/22 and Sunday 4/29, we’ll be performing two fresh new additions to our repertoire- a sassy 1920s jazz-inspired rendition of “Ain’t Misbehavin'” and the debut of “The Green Chair,” a compelling, contact-heavy Modern piece created especially for Gnosis by renowned choreographer and artistic director, Paco Gomes. You won’t want to miss it!
