The fall 2019 newsteps: a choreographers series presented by the Chen Dance Center, 70 Mulberry Street 2nd floor in historic Chinatown, will take place December 5 through December 7; 7:30pm. The series will showcase the works of six emerging choreographers Jessica Alexander & Madison Doyle, Caitlin Javech, Amanda Spilinga, Alice Halter, Catherine Eng and Susanne McHugh. These artists were selected by a panel of established dance makers and provided rehearsal space, mentoring and performance opportunities. The newsteps series offers three performances for an intimate audience of approximately 100 people.
Meet Alice Halter, a Brooklyn-based choreographer and performer, connects neuroscience theory to personal narratives through collaborative movement investigations and performance. Her work has been presented in Georgia, New York, Connecticut, and Michigan. Alice views dance-making as an opportunity to create challenges and devise infinite solutions through movement. She holds a BS in Biology and a minor in dance from Emory University.
