Rebecca Rice Dance
The podcast shows excerpts of the contemporary modern dance choreography of Rebecca Rice. REBECCA RICE DANCE focuses on creating new work which blends the design-oriented, musical style of ballet with the creative, innovative elements and energy of 21th C. modern dance. Rebecca Rice's affiliation with new classical music compliments her original, creative style as well as her loyality to her classical training in both Denishawn and Limon/Evans technique. Her recent choreographic collaborations with Pulitzer Prize winning MIT composer, John Harbison, cellist Emmanuel Feldman and Burberry designer/photographer Martin Cooper have all distinguished her work as being one of the new fresh and original voices blending modern contemporary dance and ballet today. The company has been presented by the Boston Ballet, Bank of America Celebrity Series, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, the Boston Pops, World Music, MIT, New England Conservatory, Longy School of Music, Green Street Studios and the Dance Complex and has won "Best of Boston" awards from both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald.
