We Dance Our Dances

Directed by Jean Isaacs

@ Sheila & Hughes Potiker Theatre
UCSD Theatre District/La Jolla Playhouse

June 7 - 9 , 2007

The Performance

The Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of California, San Diego is pleased to present the Spring Dance Concert, WE DANCE / OUR DANCES, a collection of diverse pieces highlighting the performance and choreography of our top dance students.  WE DANCE / OUR DANCESperforms on Thursday, June 7th, Friday, June 8th, and Saturday, June 9th at 8:00pm. Performances are in the Sheila & Hughes Potiker Theatre in the UCSD Theatre District/La Jolla Playhouse.


The Director

WE DANCE / OUR DANCES is directed by faculty member Jean Isaacs, a critically-acclaimed, award-winning choreographer and teacher whose work has been presented in Switzerland, Germany, China, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, and Poland, as well as on both coasts of the US.  The Village Voice called her “a warm, witty, and wise choreographer,” and The New York Times said of her dances, “…they were intelligent dances danced by beautiful dancers.”  Isaacs is the Artistic Director of the San Diego Dance Theater, the originator of the annual site-specific project Trolley Dances, and the co-founder of the San Diego Dance Alliance, Three’s Company and Dancers, and Isaacs/McCaleb & Dancers.  She created Cabaret Dances, which performs annually at the San Diego Museum of Art.  Her work includes commissions by San Diego Opera, the La Jolla Playhouse, the Old Globe Theater, the Goodman Theater, San Diego Repertory Theater, Berkeley Repertory Theater, Long Wharf Theater and the “New Wave” Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Ms Isaacs received the UCSD Distinguished Teacher Award for 2001 and the California Dance Educators Association Award for 1999.  Retiring from UCSD shortly after this concert and after twenty-two years of teaching for the UCSD Dance Program, Ms. Isaacs will continue as Artistic Director of the San Diego Dance Theater and other professional projects.
