Sidra Bell Dance New York, a contemporary modern-dance company under the guidance of Sidra Bell '01, will hold performances in May, marking its New York season.  Her company will perform "Kingdom" from May 8-11 and "garment" from May 15-18 at the Baruch Performing Arts Center in Manhattan.  Bell, a Westchester resident, majored in history at Yale. The company returns to New York after performances in Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Vancouver this year.

Reviewers in San Francisco described her work as "brainy, exuberant audacity" and wrote that the "ferocious physicality of her dance-making is its most attractive quality.

"I want to push the boundaries of movement with each work and not repeat what I have done before," Bell told the Pittsburgh media. Tickets can be purchased by clicking SBDNY.
