Summer Vacation? Not for this Teaching ArtistFriday, November 18, 2016


Question: What do teaching artists do when schools are closed for the summer? Answer: They keep very busy. This summer, teaching artist Danielle Marie Fusco not only participated in a dance residency with PUSH Physical Theatre to hone her artistry, but also choreographed two musical productions.




In July, Ms. Fusco (pictured in the foreground, above and below) worked with artists in PUSH Physical Theater, the professional movement group that had performed for (C3)2 teachers and students last fall. During the rigorous residency, she explored modern dance and theater techniques, mime and acrobatics, unique methodology in storytelling, and much more. Ms. Fusco also had an opportunity to teach a Master Class at Nazareth College.



Ms. Fusco’s whirlwind summer continued in August with her choreography of The Vanity and Tink! The Musical. The Vanity, which was in rehearsal in August and ran at Theatre Row for most of September, is a musical cross between The Picture of Dorian Gray and Sunset Boulevard, while Tink! revisits Neverland, that faraway place in J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. Tink! was part of the 2016 New York Musical Festival and won an award for "outstanding family musical." Congratulations, Danielle!
