Dutch Dance

Published: Wednesday, 05/11/2005 12:00 am EDT

Pre-professional dancers have a rare opportunity to fine-tune their technique when Dutch genius Dylan Newcomb, pictured here, teaches a class on Contemporary Technique. Mr. Newcomb's choreography is a vital ingredient in Holland's world-leading dance scene. Dance fans are among the luckiest recipients of the Dutch-Canadian celebrations of the ending of The Second World War, with events scheduled all week (see May 12 and May 14 Listings). Even among this crowd, however, Mr. Newcomb's work stands out for its uncompromising boldness. His work The Passing was described in London's The Guardian as "a solo of muscularly sculpted anxiety." Any amateur dancers hoping to evolve into professionals should be anxious to take Newcomb's class.
