LA Dance Moves has announced the streaming of its new work PULSE, choreographed by Artistic Director Nancy Paradis, May 1-2, 2021. The ballet, PULSE was composed to music by composer, sound designer, pianist, electronic musician, and educator David Karagianis. Karagianis created an album by the same name which combines improvisational abilities into the realm of electronic music. His music was originally composed to accompany university modern dance classes, but now Paradis has found a unique way to interpret Karagianis’ music.
Paradis performed with the Washington Ballet, Richmond Ballet, and the Louisville Ballet companies. In Los Angeles, she performed and choreographed in the commercial world including NBC Must See TV, A&E Promo, Fox Fit TV, the Hollywood Bowl and the MTV Movie Awards. Paradis stated that PULSE “was created in a hybrid format of virtual rehearsals, self-practice, and in-studio rehearsals”.
“We are more determined than ever to get dancers dancing despite current challenges. With a new focus, LA Dance Moves has invited 4 professional dancers to create with and invites original works of a local composer to expose his music to new audiences. In an online dance and musical experience, PULSE shares a fresh and exciting look as we tell our stories of hope and resilience. We are thrilled to have this performance series appear on balletproject.tv; an exciting and new platform built specifically for the ballet world (LA Dance Moves press release).”
