It’s been awhile since we have posted, but this is an important one, so please read on. The first annual meeting of the Friends of Brockport Dance organization will held on Sunday, July 13, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the Hartwell Dance Theatre at The College at Brockport. We’re letting you all know early to get it in your schedules as we’re hoping for a large turnout of the membership to guide the Board as we chart a course for next year and fill some vacancies on the Board and its Officers. Put it on your calendar!
The meeting will begin with a brief, entertaining lecture demonstration on the art of choreography. Dancers will perform an excerpt of Bill Evans’ choreography, after which Bill will talk about his process and answer questions. It is likely that one of our wonderful MFA candidates, Lyndsey Vader, will also be available to show part of her new work and discuss it. Next, Dance Department Chair Dr. Darwin Prioleau will speak to the "State of the Department" message, describing briefly what has happened over the past academic year and what we are planning for next year. By then we hope to have the second issue of the Friends of Brockport Dance Newsletter out, so many of our membership should know a lot about the past year already. We’ll then move into the meeting itself, at which we hope to elect a new Vice President and bring several new people onto the Board, adopt necessary changes to the organizations bylaws, and handle any other business. If you would like to serve on the FOBD Board or as Vice President, or know someone else who could fill those roles and bring a passion for dance and helping student artists meet their potential, then contact the FOBD through this site.
Watch here and in your mail for a letter of invitation. We encourage you to come out and join us for an exciting program and to hear about the plans we have for the 2008-2009 season. If you’re not yet a member of the Friends of Brockport Dance, send us an email through the site so we can get you on Board in time for the meeting.
