AAS Member Anna Mayta – “Dance Groove your way into a New Year!”

Anna writes to let us know that she is growing and moving forward in her vision for her dance artistry and life. She is teaching in different schools and strengthening her dance company, Mayta Fusion Dance. She has started to rent a space in Hudson, NY where she moved in May. 

Saturday Dec. 4 from 5-8pm, she will perform her Flamenco fusion and fusion solos with other dancers in collaboration with Operation Unite from Hudson NY. If you are in Hudson, NY, check it out!


Like last year, she will also be offering a free New Year’s Eve Fusion Groove class and hopes you can join her in “dancing in” the new year. It will be with songs with the theme of New Year’s. She fuses traditional styles of dance from India, West Africa, Spain and Latin America, with modern technique.
Thursday, December 30th 5:00-6:00 pm

Please email Anna to request the zoom link.

AAS Member Donna Osterby Brien displays her art at Open Door Tea in Stratford

Through October you can find Arts Alliance of Stratford member Donna Osterby Brien’s beautiful art decorating the eclectic walls of the inviting and scrumptious Open Door Tea in Paradise Green in Stratford. 

The collection of artwork on display reflects the wide scope of Donna’s interests ranging from her portrait work of pets and people, to her fascination with flowers. From a large orchid on canvas to the details of a single iris, Donna is drawn to not only to color, but to the intriguing convolutions of folds, curves, straight lines and hard edges of subjects such as shells, fabrics, and flowers in her artwork.

Two pieces on display have been only shown exclusively. “Let’s Play Ball” and “The Storyteller” represent her work which is more fantasy oriented. 

Visit Open Door Tea to see and support her artwork and enjoy a delicious bite to eat with your tea, coffee, or healthy fresh juiced beverage!

Open with new hours, Monday—Saturday 9-5. All artwork can be purchased by contacting Donna’s email.
