I was ecstatic to watch the dancers of RIOULT Dance NY up close at their open studio rehearsal a couple of weeks ago.
RIOULT Dance NY is a New York City based modern dance company founded in 1994 and showcases the innovative works of choreographer Pascal Rioult. The company tours both nationally and internationally, and guests were invited to preview works that will be seen during their 19 city European tour.
RIOULT performed a stunning piece entitled Dream Suite (photos below). A former principal dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company, Rioult incorporated Graham- like sensuality and psychological aspects into the piece. The dancers complimented one another beautifully and at times even breathed as one, reinforcing the deep emotion and athleticism behind each movement.

This week I have the immense honor of attending the company's Winter Gala and I can't wait to see which remarkable pieces they will perform throughout the evening. Check back for the recap!
