|At Yale, Sidra Bell '01 studied history before deciding on a career in dance.|
Greenburgh native Sidra Bell '01, the choreographer who leads her own New York dance company Sidra Bell Dance, will speak on dance innovation at the Yale Club of New York, Wednesday, Mar. 5 at 6:30 pm. Yale alumni, guests, and those interested in the arts and dance are invited to attend.
A New York Times reviewer once referred to one of her group's performances as "slick, in-your-face intensity." A Washington Post critic described her choreography as "creepy and comical."
Bell will discuss her work after a short reception. At Yale, a resident of Saybrook College, she majored in history before earning an MFA degree from Purchase College. Her dance company has performed around the country and abroad (in Greece, Brazil, Bulgaria, and Germany, among other countries).
In 2015, she was honored by ArtsWestchester as one of the top 50 artists who work in or are from Westchester.
"It's not about the steps," she once told an interviewer. "It's the ideas behind the steps."
