We are delighted to announce our Founder and Artistic Director, Sally Jacques, is featured in Dance Appreciation, an educational dance textbook, published 2021. It spotlights Blue Lapis Light as a fore-runner in the intersection between aerial dance and site specific dance. In Dance Appreciation Sally touches on her creative process and the vision behind her work:
"Jacques spends time listening to the space and surrounding environment, inviting the story to unfold. She describes her dances as 'prayers for the planet' and indeed, her site-specific work celebrates the ecstatic interplay of graceful choreography, transformational imagery, and the beauty of the full moon, a shooting star, and an occasional unexpected breeze."
Dance Appreciation, Dawn Davis Loring, Julie L. Pentz
A digital version of this textbook is available for purchase. This book may be of interest to those seeking to learn more about aerial dance, site specific dance, or any other style of dance.
