Twyla Tharp
  • Twyla Tharp
The queen of crossover dance (ballet/modern fusion), Twyla Tharp is a breaker of boundaries and shaper of American dance. Rejecting ballet’s historic elitism, Tharp has choreographed works to the music of popular icons like Fred Astaire (“Singin’ In the Rain”) and Billy Joel (“Movin’ Out”). At the culmination of a three-week residency with the Catskill Mountain Foundation, the legendary choreographer and her dance company will stage three works-in-progress, set to music ranging from Bach to Bob Dylan. The show is on September 9 at 7:30pm at the Catskill Mountain Foundation Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center in Tannersville. Catskillmtn.org/events.
