Note: Videoing 11:00-1:45, 2:00 Performance

New York City, NY—Performers include Line Hadad, French and Israeli Ice Dance Olympic competitor and Ice Theatre of New York Ensemble Member, Alizah  Allen, Senior  Ladies US National competitor and Ice Theatre of New York Ensemble  Member, Patrick Connelly, US Ice Dance National competitor, and Beth Woronoff, Director of the Boundless Edge Ice Dance Ensemble and former Ice Theatre of New York Former  Ensemble  Member.  The cast of twelve is filled out by eight members of the Saugerties, NY based Boundless Edge Ice Dance Ensemble.

Fifteen foot tall skeleton puppets join the Day of the Dad Parade, complete with Mariachi music and costumes from Mexico city, all there to honor Mexico’s great artist, Frida Kahlo.  Voice-overs in Spanish and English quote Frida’s original journal entries “I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” and “There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.”  The trolley and bus accident is depicted by five skaters in a bus puppet and two in a trolley puppet crash into one another and spin apart.  Diego and Frida appear in front of Frida’s painting of them only to be interrupted by Frida’s sister, Christina and revolutionary Leon Trotsky.  The seductive scene plays out as Diego casually leaves Frida to dance with her sister.  Despite the physical and emotional pain that Frida endured, the message of her life and this dance is “Live Life! Enjoy Life!  Be yourself!  Let nothing stop you!

Produced and co-directed by: Mike Carson and Beth Woronoff

Choreography by: Beth Woronoff 
Puppets by: Sara Peattie of the Puppet Cooperative and Theresa Linnihan

The Boundless Edge Skating School now in it’s 9th year teaches beginning students all of the Basic Skills needed to pursue a Competitive Skating career or a Performing Arts route.   Students learn all of the traditional spins, jumps, turns and edges as well as unique movement developed to express theatrical choreography. These skills are put to use in performances, first in recitals and then in semi-professional settings.  Our program is especially well suited for the creative non-competitive young person.

Students will be divided up into groups according to their age and level.  Classes taught and/or supervised by USFSA Gold Medalist and Former Ice Theatre of New York Ensemble Member, Beth Woronoff – over 20 years of ice skating teaching experience.

Make-ups for classes missed can be done on any other day that a class at your level is offered.

Boundless Edge Holiday Show

Contemporary Dance on Ice Dramatic and Theatrical

Saturday December 17th, 7:00PM, 2011Kiwanis Ice Arena in Saugerties 

The Boundless Edge Ice Dance Ensemble will open our 9th season with a performance at our home rink, in Saugerties.  This season we are reviving some of our most popular ensemble and solo works created by Boundless Edge Founder, Beth Woronoff during the past fifteen years. 

In chronological order “Red”, first created and performed by Ms. Woronoff in 1996.  This Graham inspired work was shown at many Ice Theatre of New York performances including several memorable ones at Rockefeller Center.  This time, seventeen year old Saugerties native, Sara Forsythe will be wearing the ankle length red dress and skating the original choreography.   The next oldest piece is skated to the Bach Cello Suites, we will show “Lightness” which is the first part  of “Six Arcs of a Circle”  This work was created in 1997 during the first Chelsea Piers/Sky Rink Artist in Residence Ice Grant and will now be performed by twelve year old Ana Alexander. 

Now we jump to 2006 and a piece entitled “My Kind of Blue” and yes it is set to Miles Davis’ “All Blues”.  Originally performed by Ms. Woronoff she will once again entertain the audience with her fast spins and fanciful footwork that responds to and drives the wobble of the saxophone.  Created the following year in 2007 the ensemble will perform “Don’t Break Down”.  The 6 skaters in this fun and girlish piece will lift your spirits as will “Celtic Techno” which entered our repertoire the following year, disciplined Irish steps are contrasted with contemporary gestures in a mix which will delight.  “Volcano” is a new born, just created last season.  This dynamic trio depicts female warriors defending their territory each of which has her own unique skating prowess.  In addition we will have two new works as yet unnamed also a Special Guest from NYC will perform, to be announced soon.

$12 Adults

$9 Students and Seniors

Discounts for groups of 10 or more. 

Please call 845.626.4596, go to www.boundlessedge.org or email beth@boundlessedge.org for tickets and information.

Boundless Edge is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions in behalf of Boundless Edge may be made payable to Fractured Atlas.
