February will kick off our monthly series of artist Talks.

This Event will only be available on Zoom.

Complete the form below to receive the meeting link.

Our presenter will be:

Anna Mayta, educator, choreographer, dance improviser, dance artist, performer, and director of Mayta Fusion Dance.

Anna will talk about her dance form, Fusion Dance, and how it was influenced and developed from diverse dance forms from all over the world.

Fusion dance is very approachable for beginners who want to get up and move to music because it’s very improvisational.

Anna grew up in Chile and is a dance artist, dance improviser, choreographer, and educator. She graduated from Empire State College in June 2001 with a BA in Dance in Education. In November 2008, she received a certificate to teach yoga from Svyasa Swami Vivekananda Yoga University in Bangalore, India. In 2006, she was awarded a dissemination award from the Dutchess County Arts Council in Poughkeepsie, New York.

The theme challenge is Into The Light.

A forest scene where light can be seen streaming in between the trees.

Into The Light theme prompts:

  • As we move through February, the days will lengthen and daylight will come earlier.
  • Light is the root word of enlightenment, which is where knowledge and ideas come from.
  • Light travels at 186,000 miles per second.
  • The extraordinary photos of nebulas, galaxies, and distant stars are from light that is only reaching us after traveling thousands of years.
  • We can only perceive light in the presence of darkness.

Use the image of the light flooding in through the trees as a starting point as your starting point.

The challenge is open to visual art, writing, poetry, music, or performance.

Each month the challenge theme is announced at the end of the monthly meeting. The finished challenge pieces will be presented at the next monthly meeting.
