Norte Maar is pleased to announce the return of Fête de Danse, one of the North Country’s signature dance events! From 2004-2009 Fête de Danse ran in succession at the Civic Center in Rouses Point and was presented in collaboration with the Rouses Point Historical Society. The event brought renowned local, regional, and international dance companies together in a converted ice rink for a night celebrating dance and the Rouses Point community. This August, Fête de Danse returns full steam as Norte Maar collaborates with the Strand Center for the Arts to bring back this summer event.

From humble beginnings, curator Jason Andrew and choreographer Julia K. Gleich started Norte Maar in 2004 as a way of promoting collaborations in our time. In celebration of our 10 year anniversary we are looking back, admiring our various projects and highlighting some significant articles and reviews. This post features an article by Ann Hawksby on June 12, 2004 in the Clinton County Edition of the Free Trader. It’s our very first article!
Bushwick Open Studios looks to be another huge year for arts in Bushwick! At press time there were 581 online registered events (down only slightly from last year’s 598 registered users) filling a weekend with art and performance. We worked over the very user friendly Arts in Bushwick website and compiled Norte Maar’s 2014 list of not to miss events, exhibitions, and studios… or at least those that we’ll not miss!!!! Similar to last year, all events/exhibitions/studios are divided into six zones stretching the geographic lines which make up the creative neighborhood of Bushwick.
This week when Brooklyn Ballet takes to the stage for its spring season, two Norte Maar artists have collaborated with resident choreographer, Julia K. Gleich to create two new works on the company.
