Interactive Dance Programs
Benita Bike's DanceArt has a long history of presenting dance outreach programs at community centers, art centers, libraries, and schools. These performances awaken people to the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual value of dance by presenting modern dance works in a non-intimidating fashion – simply showing the work and clearly and engagingly explaining how the work came into being. A typical outreach program includes the performance of 2-3 dances, introductory information about each dance, and many opportunities for artists and audience members to talk about dance performance and dance making.
Benita Bike's DanceArt has presented these dance outreach programs
at a number of venues including St Lawrence University, El Camino College, Brand Library &
Art Center, Long Beach City College, Whittier College, Angels Gate Cultural Center, Oldham County Schools
Arts Center, Culver City Senior
Center, YWCA Cambridge, Los Angeles Mission
College, the Madrid Theatre, YWCA Boston, City of Lexington Town Hall,
Jamaica Plain Art Center, McGroarty Art Center, Sunland Senior Center,
Lake View Terrace Library, La Crescenta Library, Parnell Community Center Whittier, Old Town Temecula Theater Merc, among others.
