ALBERT REID: A Tribute to His Illustrious Life in Modern Dance
Fundraiser at The Dance Hub!
American Dance & Music will host a very special fundraising event to acknowledge and celebrate the life’s work of Albert Reid. The event acknowledges his contributions to the Santa Barbara dance community as well as his extensive career as choreographer, teacher, and dancer. The event looks back on his life in modern dance, including Albert’s tenure with the world renowned Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Albert was featured in the Company’s first 6-month world tour in 1964, which set the stage for Cunningham’s career as a seminal international modern dance choreographer and dancer. 2019 is Cunningham’s centennial year.
The celebration will feature Albert in excerpts of archival film footage, including the first performance of Cunningham’s signature piece RainForest, live dance and music performances, exquisite food and drink, and a variety of tributes to Albert by members of the Santa Barbara dance community whose lives he inspired and influenced. The Dance Hub is a non-profit program of American Dance and Music, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. All proceeds from this event support The Dance Hub and its community programming.
