The PGK DANCE Project is SUPER excited to share "PERSPECTIVES" at the Los Angeles Dance Festival Friday Oct. 23rd as part of the Fringe program (we're San Diego based). For the last 20+ years I have been working hard to challenge "where" dance happens and "how" it is presented, accessed and enjoyed by by-passing theater spaces in exchange for more familiar public spaces and using creative place making strategies to ensure my work is affordable and more easily accessed by the public. "PERSPECTIVES", my new PGK DANCE for Film occurs around and throughout the ArtProduce building in the North Park district of San Diego. Access the Link to Friday's show here Noon -Midnight: http://www.luckmanarts.org/events/los-angeles-dance-festival.html ENJOY and Opa! Peter G. Kalivas, Director PGK DANCE!

https://vimeo.com/313540861 MASTER CLASS Thurs 5/16 6:00-7:30 $15 Jon Lehrer started his company in 2007 in Buffalo, NY and has received critical acclaim nationally and internationally. Under his artistic direction, the company showcases Jon's unique choreography and embodies his definitive style. His extensive background in both the modern and jazz dance idioms fosters choreography that is organic, artistic, accessible and often humorous, reflecting life experience and the human condition. The company’s expressive style is based on three main elements of movement - Circularity, 3-Dimensionality, and Momentum -which combine to create a form that is best described as “Organically Athletic.” . With creativity, athleticism, and the ability to make new and innovative modern and jazz dance accessible to all audiences,, the company has made quite a name for themselves in the dance world. Striking the elusive balance between art and entertainment, Jon Lehrer Dance showcases unique choreography and a fun, distinctive style which fuses jazz and modern dance., creating a true spectacle onstage which can be enjoyed by dance experts and novices alike; Now based in New York City, Jon Leherer Dance Company tours extensively, bringing their trademark artistic, athletic, and accessible style to audiences worldwide. Dance Magazine praised “the company took the house not so much by storm as by quantum physics,” and Galerie Ortenau in Offenburg, Germany declares, “Dynamic, Powerful, Elegant – brings an absolute passion for the dance.” The company toured to Europe in 2013, 2016, 2018, and will return in 2020. They toured to Russia in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016, sponsored by the US State Department in order to, “bring the best in American modern dance to the people of Russia “Jon Lehrer’s strikingly original choreography transformed the stage into an energy field of super-charged Jon Lehrer’s class engages the students entire physicality, integrating the approach and fluidity of modern dance with the excitement and energy of jazz dance to achieve a more efficient and engrossing way of movement and expression. The technique revolves around the world of physics, using physics to propel us through space, balance, turn, jump, and every other way we move our bodies. The 4-main elements focused on are Circularity, 3-Dimensionality, Oppositional Energy, and Momentum. Along with Newton’s Laws of Motion, these combine to create an efficient, effective, and engrossing style of movement we in the company call “Organic Atheticsm”. Students will gain valuable insight into the art and athleticism of dance as well as how physics and dance are directly related. Take class and learn Jon Lehrer Dance Company’s world famous rep At.
